GALAXY ROUND ROBIN FUND RAISING EVENT
Greensboro Galaxy sponsored a Round Robin Fund Raising Event this past weekend that featured four great teams. Lady Phoenix, Merc Bulldogs (Burlington) and Summer Heat (West Virginia). Every team had a great group of athletic girls who could play. Every game pretty much went down to the wire where last second shots were made. In fact one young lady hit a shot from half court to send the game into overtime.
Lady Phoenix went 3 and 1 in the event and got stellar play from the likes of Asia McNeil who scored 22 points in the win against Merc Bulldogs in a close 78-76 win. Brittany Price ( Southeast) also contributed 13 points. In a game against a very discpline Summer Heat team from West Virginia Asia McNeil (Southeast) scored 15 points , Brittany Gwynn ( High Point Central) 16 points and Vontrese Hayes(Northern Guilford) 13 points help secure the win 83-76. Amanda Hairston (Dudley) 9 points did an outstanding job on the boards and made some nice power moves around the basket that should serve Dudley well if she is back with them this year. In game against Galaxy the Phoenix got off to a great start and had a commanding 14 point lead late in to the second half until Galaxy mounted a rally and took a one point lead. However under the direction of Coach Odom and Price who took over the responsibilities Lady Phoenix held on to win 73-67 and on Sunday they got their first loss in two overtimes to Summer Heat whom they had beaten earlier 81-74. The great thing about this game is that it was never over until it was over. Hannah McIntosh (NW Guilford) looked like she had sealed the deal when she hit a three pointer with three seconds left to give the Lady Phoenix a 67-64 lead and a thunderous applaud from the bench and crowd.
Unfortunately the game was still going when a Summer Heat player launched a shot from half court and nailed it as time expired to send the game into overtime. Summer Heat pulled away in the second over time to salvage a weekend that help them finish 2-2 and tied with Greensboro Galaxy. Merc Bulldogs went 1-3. This event was a nice event that had great talent on display and a good crowd.
