Mott/Regent Wildfire play in New Salem Invitational Tournament
The Mott/Regent Wildfire played the second game of the New Salem/ Almont Invitational Tournament Thursday, Dec. 12, against the Standing Rock Warriors.
"We started out a little rough. They were pressing us and we got a little frazzled," said Head Coach Sara Seidler. "Defensively we had trouble in the first quarter just moving around. It took us a little bit to get back into it. We are still working on our three-two zone and getting that perfected. Once the girls started talking, things went better – they were able to get up and down the floor and got some tips on the ball and some steals so that really helped us out," she continued.
The Wildfire took the 41-32 win.
