RECAP: #12 SUMMER CREEK vs. #22 GOOSE CREEK MEMORIAL
- 24 Nov
Written by: Geoffrey Day (RCS Sports)
Non-District matchup in the early season between two RCS Sports ranked squads. UIL 6A vs UIL 5A! #12 Summer Creek Bulldogs (Houston, TX) traveled 30 minutes to take on #22 Goose Creek Memorial Patriots (Baytown, TX). Here is my game synopsis and evals.
The seesaw battle began early in the game as both teams traded buckets. Summer Creek had it’s press going right after their first bucket, and they got into foul trouble early in the game. They entered the 1:1 bonus at the beginning of the second quarter. In the first two quarters the Bulldogs barely missed many shots as they ran their offense really well and capitalized off of the turnovers for easy buckets. The Patriots did their best to handle the press and them shooting a high free-throw percentage helped keep them in the game. It was a 10 point lead at the half with Summer creek up 54-44 over Goose Creek Memorial.
Talk about a way to open up the third quarter that ultimately altered the game. Dariyus Woodson already had 3 individual fouls and was charged with shooting foul that was questionable. He just stood with his two hands up as his opponent drove to the rim and made contact with him. He yelled out “Oh My God” and the ref hit him with a technical foul giving him his 5th foul with only 30 seconds played into the 3rd quarter. The air was sucked out of the Patriots as they only scored 4 points and had 12 turnovers in the quarter alone, and couldn’t get a bucket to fall. Summer Creek kept the pressure applied in the fourth quarter and walked away big winners in this matchup of ranked teams.
