Women’s Basketball Comes Home with Two More Wins

11.20.2011 | Pheonixville, PA

The Lady Knights played the host team of the Valley Forge Classic Saturday afternoon at 4pm. Even though the Lady Knights cruised to an easy victory against Valley Forge last week in the Super 8 Classic they knew they couldn’t come to this game expecting the same result. “Valley Forge is better than what they played last week, they struggled offensively early and I think they let that get them down and they just weren’t the team that I know they can be. They will be much tougher today, especially playing them on their own court.” Said Head Coach Ron Arnett of what to expect from Valley Forge the second time around.

Valley Forge proved Coach Arnett right early on in the game leading the Lady Knights 10-13 with 10 minutes left in the first half. The Lady Knights knew if they continued to play like that they weren’t going to come away with the victory, so they buckled down played some hard defense which lead to a better production of offense. The Lady Knights went into the half up 40-22, scoring 30 points in the last 10 minutes of the first half.

The Lady Knights finished the second half just as strongly as the first half beating Valley Forge 66-47. “It is always nice to be able to go on the road and come away with victories, starting the season out 9-0 is a great thing, I just hope that we as a team don’t get complacent and expect to win every game this season, I know we will have to work hard for every victory and I hope I can instill that in my team.” Coach Arnett said of the great early start the Lady Knights have had this season.

The Lady Knights will get a nice long break for Thanksgiving and will travel to Eastern Kentucky University for another exhibition game, Coach Arnett likes to have chances to expose their weaknesses so that they can improve throughout the year, on Tuesday November 29 at 7:30pm.
