Reservoir now knows the way to Tuscarora High School. The Gators drove out to the Frederick County School on Saturday only to endure a lightning and rain delay that caused their Class 4A/3A North game to be postponed until Monday.
From a Reservoir perspective, the rescheduled game didn’t have the best of starts.
“We got in a 7-1 hole in the first 10 minutes. We had a great comeback, but we didn’t do enough,” said Reservoir coach Katie Lee after her team lost, 16-13.
Tuscarora’s center, Caitlin Miller, made it difficult for the Gators.
“She can self draw and self draw to different places. She can place the ball on the circle and she understands when to lose the ball and let the other girl win it,” Lee said.
Reservoir trailed, 7-5, at the half.
“I’m very happy with the push that we made as a comeback. Our intensity and effort were there but we couldn’t get out of the hole,” Lee said. “The seniors have left a legacy on the program and the juniors are looking forward to picking up where they left off.”
Tuesday, Howard will play at Tuscarora for the sectional championship.
