Oh, Ya'll!!! Last night was quite a night. My hands are still shaking a little bit this morning from all of the excitement last night! And before you roll your eyes and tell me that basketball is just a game....let me tell you that there is so much more to our evening.
The coach had been telling the girls all last week about this team. Apparently, they like to press and run fast. The girls worked hard to get ready for the game. Finally, it was here!
Our Hannah got to jump for the jump ball opening and then we were off! They fought hard on the court and our girls did too! Hannah jumped, guarded, jumped some more, and even shot a few free throws:
After the buzzer rang it was time for round 2. All of our hearts were beating fast. The girls played so hard. Here you can see Hannah shooting for two points against a mighty tall defender...and she made it! The coach called a timeout with 49 seconds left in the entire ball game. The score was 19 (us) to 18 (them)....and he was looking at my baby girl in the huddle!
I'm quite sure that I held my breath during this entire play but somehow managed to take pictures! The girls lined up to throw the ball in....Hannah watched....waited...and made her move. Her friend Amber threw her the ball, Hannah jumped high in the air.....caught the ball....shot it....and the ball went in the hoop!!!!!!!!! The score: 21(us) to 18 (them) and there was only 22 seconds left on the clock. 22 LONG seconds!
The teams all huddled with their coaches before the first overtime began. The score at the end of the first OT was 26-26. Oiy! The crowd was electric, the girls were running on adrenaline, and preparing for the 2nd overtime of the night!
I didn't take one picture of the second overtime....I guess I was a bit on edge and couldn't be bothered with my camera, but our girls won the game in DOUBE OVERTIME. The score? Oh, it was 28-26. What a game!!!!
But there is much more to our evening..... I'm in my pink fluffy bathrobe this morning posting this recap and I don't want to be late for school. I'll try to post the rest of the story tomorrow! Ya'll have a blessed day!!!!
