Girls: Garcia Hits In The Clutch As Packers Triumph
Fremont 60 Montague 57
Coach John Krim’s Packers are a scrappy squad with a number of talented players who have each played a role in the team’s early success including two come from behind wins already in the books.
Make it three.
Monday night Hali Garcia ripped the nets with a clutch 3-pointer as time expired to send the game into overtime and then fired in another 9 points in the two extra frames her team needed to notch win number 6 on the season in a non conference tilt with Montague.
The victory was just what the Pack needed after ...
...Big Rapids ended their 4-game winning streak on Friday.
Despite scoring just a pair of points entering the fourth Garcia caught a little lightning in a bottle and finished with 17 for the game. Bre Harris led the team in scoring once again knocking down a team high 18 but it was her defensive wizardry that gave the Wildcat guards fits as she picked their pockets for 11 steals on the night.
Natalie Jamieson got in on the thievery snatching 5 steals to go with her 10 points and Riley Sweet canned a key 3 pointer in the fourth as part of her 9 point output. Anna Patenge added 4 points and Torey Reichert-Slater contributed 2 as Fremont moves to 6-2 on the season.
The matchup scheduled for Tuesday against the red hot Hornets of Central Montcalm who sit atop the CSAA Gold standings and boast 7 straight wins after dropping their opener has been rescheduled for February 7th.
The Pack will return to Gold action Friday night when they welcome in the Lions of Newaygo.
