Spartans battle back from first half deficit but fall to Scotties

Glasgow and South Warren faced off in the first of two Region 4 Semi-Final matchups Saturday afternoon at Allen County-Scottsville High School. The Lady Spartans and Lady Scotties went back and forth exchanging a combined 5 three-pointers in the first period. The two teams kept the score close at 17-16 after 1. To start the second period, Glasgow trotted out a 2-3 zone which stifled the drive of Amaya Lasley and on the other end of the court, no one could stifle the drive of Breanna Glover. Glover totaled 21 of the first 39 for Glasgow en route to a double digit halftime lead. _MG_7072

Junior second team all region forward Colby Downing sprinted out of the second half hitting 4/5 3-point shots in the third period. (Her lone miss came at the third period buzzer) Behind the smooth stroke of Downing, South Warren cut the lead down to three points. Ellie Bartley started the fourth period for Glasgow in much the same way that Downing began the third. Bartley, a freshmen guard, hit three shots from behind the arc in the first two minutes of the final period, extending the lead back out. The game hovered between seven and nine points for the remainder of the contest ending with Glasgow on top 64-56.
