Girls basketball fell to Goodrich 54-46 Tuesday, Dec. 17, during a non-conference game.

At halftime, the Hornets were up by two points, but as the game went on the Hornets began to fall behind.

During the third quarter, Goodrich picked up the pace and scored 23 points while the Hornets began to fall behind, scoring only 10 points.

Senior Sydney Walker led the Hornets with 21 points, eight steals, and six rebounds.

Junior Saniaa Walker also pitched in with eight points and seven steals.

Sydney believes the game did not go as the team had hoped, but the Hornets will take what happened during the game and use it as a lesson for future games.

“The game did not go as we wanted. We did not have our best performance,” Sydney said. “We learned a lesson from that game. We don’t call our losing games losses, we call them lessons.”

Sydney feels the Hornets perform well together but could work on their consistency.

“We play well when we are all engaged in the game and when we are all helping each other,” Sydney said. “We have to improve on being consistent with our performances.”

The Hornets are now 2-2 overall, 1-0 in the Metro League.

The Hornets will compete Friday, Dec. 20, at Swartz Creek for their second Metro League game.
