No. 1 Giltner upends Silver Lake

ROSELAND — The Class D-2 No. 1-ranked Giltner girls basketball team trailed Silver Lake 13-12 after one quarter of play Thursday night.

But the Lady Hornets would find their stride in the second half on their way to a 52-38 victory.

Giltner head coach Nancy Lockmon made some adjustments at the end of the first quarter to help hold off a persistent Silver Lake team.

“We switched defenses,” she said. “They started hitting some threes and we weren’t out far enough so we switched man-to-man to hopefully get out on them a little better.”

Giltner scored the first eight points of the game before the Lady Mustangs stormed back.

“We were a little tight and a little nervous and I told the girls one possession at a time, just keep chipping away, and we did that,” said Silver Lake head coach Keith Crowe. “We played some pretty good basketball toward the end of the first quarter.”
