The eagles put two big quarters together Thursday afternoon to take the win over Forest Hills Northern in the Cornerstone Christmas tournament. The eagles came out hot in the first quarter and put up 14 points, played aggressively and played tough defense. Lily Gaastra and Madelyn Frens led the team the first quarter by driving to the hoop and making great shots. The second and third quarters were quiet ones and the eagles settled in a little bit too much. But they rallied back in the fourth quarter by playing better defense, blocking some shots and getting key rebounds. Katie Winkle led both teams in scoring with 11 points, followed by Kailynn Grieve with 8. Kristin Winkle, Lily Gaastra and Kailynn Grieve played with great intensity and Savannah Smith-Rienstra had a couple of key blocks. The eagles will play in the championship game against Zeeland East Friday at 11:30am.
