Lady Hornets clip Boonville in OT

Lady Hornets clip Boonville in OT

January 27th, 2012 in News

You'll have to excuse T.J. Quick if she was a little fired up.

Fulton's first-year head coach had just watched her Lady Hornets relinquish the lead to Boonville for the first time Thursday night and they were severely lacking in momentum.

So Quick called a timeout to stop the slide and to remind her players of a few facts.

"This team, we have moments where we die down and let teams back in it," Quick said. "I called the timeout just to make sure we didn't let them back in the game ... If you let a good team like Boonville back in, they'll come back in for good.

"We were right there and I just wanted them to keep going and keep pushing."

Quick broke through to her players and Fulton finally prevailed. The Lady Pirates sent the game into overtime, but the Lady Hornets eventually pulled out a 56-49 North Central Missouri Conference victory over Boonville at Roger D. Davis Gymnasium.
