INDIAN LAND — A Jessica Reynolds floater with less than 10 seconds on the clock iced a 55-54 victory for the Indian over rival Cheraw Friday night to give the Indian Land Lady Warriors (6-9) their second conference win in five attempts.
While Indian Land struggled throughout the opening three quarters, head coach Natasha Farmer said Monday that a halftime motivational talk made the difference in the outcome of the game. We were a little rusty, with schools being delayed and not having as much practice, Farmer said, but I told the girls that this game will belong to the team that wants it the most. They played hard and came out with a victory.
Fridays win was their second in the last eight games on the hardcourt. They took on Buford on Monday night and Chesterfield on Tuesday. On Friday, theyll meet Pageland Central at home with the tip off scheduled for 6 p.m. Farmers team beat the Lady Eagles 69-37 in Pageland last month.
This has been the first close game this year, Farmer said. It was a nail biter and a very good one for our young team to pull out.
