MHS varsity girls host K&Q Friday
The Middlesex High varsity girls basketball team improved to 4-1 in Tidewater District play with a 41-34 win at King William on Tuesday.
The win keeps the Lady Chargers tied with Mathews for first place in the district with three games remaining. “We won the game and I am pleased with that, but we must learn to put teams away once we gain the advantage in our games,” said MHS coach Neal Wake.
The Lady Chargers had a 10-point lead late in the game but turnovers and bad decisions trimmed their lead to 6 points. “I am concerned that at this point in the season we are not playing with more consistency,” said Wake. “This team is very talented and the freshman factor can no longer be an excuse.”
The MHS JVs lost 32-22 at King William to fall to 2-2 in district play.
On Friday, January 25, at 6 p.m. only the varsity Lady Chargers will host King and Queen, which does not have a JV team. It is the last home game and will be Senior Night.
