It was a busy way to start the 2014 portion of the season as the Turkey Valley girls basketball team (6-5, 6-2 UIC) hosted MFL and North Fayette Valley.



Strong defense

Friday the Trojans hosted MFL (3-3, 2-3 UIC). Thanks to a strong defensive effort, the Trojans knocked off the Bulldogs 42-31.

The Trojans outscored the visiting team 13-6 after the first eight minutes. Both teams struggled in the second frame, scoring just 13 combined points. However, the Trojans were able to extend their lead to 20-12 at the half. MFL stormed back in the third frame, outscoring TV 10-6 to make it 22-26 with eight minutes remaining. However, Turkey Valley got back on offense by scoring 16 points to get the win.

"This was a good win for the girls," said Co-Coaches Carla Nymeyer and Dan Stepan. "They worked extremely hard and earned the victory."
