The Conquerors... Well, Conquered.

 For the final away game of the season, the Faith Baptist Falcons traveled to Milford and played the Conquerors. And the Conquerors... well, they conquered us.
 The girls started us off, but with Lexy sick and wheezing our spirit just went out of the game. However, Brynn took over and scored a total of 30 points, her highest total this season. Lexy did manage to score 11 points, the same as Karen, and Kassie and Allie shot a basket apiece(Allie's first basket- Whoo!). But sadly, we lost, and the victory went to Milford, 55 to 70.
 The guys had an equally hard time, and there were quite a few sore people on the bus ride home. Luke slammed face-first into the wall (Good thing there was a mat.) in the first couple minutes, John taking his big brother's lead and jamming his finger a little later. Though Jimmy scored an impressive 20 points, Josiah very close behind with 19 and Luke with 9 (I'm sure he would've done better if he hadn't hurt himself.), the guys still took a defeat and lost 48 to 62.
 Our last game, besides the possibility of tournaments, is March 1st, and we will yet again be playing the Milford Christian Conquerors. Let's go Falcons, we're almost done!

We Beat the Birds!

 Yet again, another make-up blog. My apologies. But back on topic:
February 11th we took on the Holly Grove Eagles yet again, and crushed them on our home court! Ahh, revenge, you are truly sweet. The girls started us off as usual, and it was an intense game indeed! But after a harsh and exciting fourth quarter, our ladies took the win with a score of 26 to 22. Karen and Lexy each scored 10 points and Brynn followed with 6. Good job girls!
 Our Falcons, after an incredibly tough and hard-core game, defeated the Eagles with a 34 to 25 win! Our guys really took a beating, John taking two falls, but came out on top through it all (Even though it seemed with all the Holly Grove guys slipping on imaginary water no one was staying up.). Jimmy and Luke each scored 10 points, Josiah 8 and John 6. Considering Faith hardly ever takes a victory over Holly Grove, let's give them all a big cheer! GO, FIGHT, WIN!

My Bad

I have yet again been neglecting the library. My bad. But back to what everyone actually reads this blog for: Basketball!
 Almost two weeks ago on February 7th, the Falcons took on the Salisbury Christian Jaguars and took home (figuratively, since they were already on the home court) another victory, making it their third win of the season! Being an only boys game, it progressed quickly, and by half-time the score was 23 to 11, Falcons in the lead. With a win of 44 to 32, the guys did a great job and played an awesome game. Luke led  the score with 14 points, which I found quite ironic seeing that his jersey number is also 14. Josiah was right on his heels with 13, John with 9 and Jimmy with 8. Good job guys, and sorry for the late praise!

Falcons FTW!

 Our second double victory for Faith just went down yesterday! Let's give a huge cheer for our Falcons! As our first time playing a public school, this time being the S. Dorchester "Jacks", we won both our games and played like pros! Show 'em how to do it, Falcons!
 Our girls started us off as usual and played hard, winning with a score of 27 to 19 like it was nothing! Our Lady Falcon's captain, Miss Lexy Ness, shot over half the points herself, making quite a few baskets and adding 15 points to our total all by herself! After we were sure the score was up and we were staying there, Lexy shared the glory and fed some shots to Kassie, Ally and Chrissy, and though Ally gave a few good tries she didn't manage to sink one. Good job girls!
 Now here's the exciting news: Our Falcons finally won, and they won it right! With a score of 59 to 37, our guys finally showed up and played their all, showing what they're made of. Jimmy and John each scored 10 points, but Josiah showed them that was nothing and scored 13. Luke, always the over-achieving athletic Zockoll, shot Josiah down with a total of 16. As we can tell from his best total of 29 points in one game, Josiah was simply letting Luke have the glory. (All in speculation my friends.) That's how you play it guys!

Failure Friday

 As the final make-up blog, i'm sad to admit that Friday's games were both losses. The Cross took us down on their home court, and they decided that a couple of our Lady Falcons should get their feathers plucked!
Our Falcons took another loss, 24 to 72, though at the end of the game I couldn't stop laughing at the insane throws and fun plays they decided to chance, considering a comeback would've been nearly impossible. Luke scored a total of 9 points as the highest point total for the game. 
The girl's game ended with a score of 16 to 26, ending the girl's high-flying streak. Karen and Lexy pulled a twins act and scored 6 points each. I can't really blame the Lady Falcons for their loss though, considering all the injuries they received. Kassie C. took a hard shot to the hand and ended up with a jammed finger, having to sit out the rest of the game. Brynn, always the over-achiever, managed to foul herself AND received the slam to the floor that normally the player you fouled would end up taking. Lexy took a couple of falls too, although she seems to do that in every game, so nothing new there.

Tuesday Trouble

 As of January 29th, the Faith Baptist Falcons took on the Holly Grove Eagles in an intense battle of the birds! You may have even heard some screeching if you listened close enough to the girl's game!
 Sadly, being the bearer of bad news, the Falcons yet again took a loss. With Josiah out of the game, the fight went out too, and the Falcons fell, taking a loss of 29 to 53. Luke and Jimmy seemed to have a twin plan going however, and managed to shoot 9 points a piece. Though not the best game to watch from my perch at the scorekeepers table, I have to admit the Eagles have an amazing court. Random, yes, but also true.
 Our Lady Falcons, however, took the victory again! Brynn and Lexy decided to play twinsies too, and scored 8 points each, the rest of the girls helping out for a win of 22 to 12. Be loud and proud girls, you deserve it! 

Monday Makeup

 As everybody has probably noticed, I haven't been able to update my blog in almost two weeks. So, sorry about that. I plan on going to the library much more often now. But anyway, what everybody has been waiting for: BASKETBALL!
 Exactly one week ago, January 28th, the FBS Falcons played The Cross Crusaders on our home court, and our Lady Falcons dominated yet again! Though the guys put up a fight, they lost their game 35 to 66, though Luke managed to score a total of 14 points, Jimmy 8, and Josiah 7. The girls, on the other hand, took the lead and kept going! Taking their third win with a total of 36 to 20, the Lady Falcons scored and soared. Brynn, like Luke, scored a whopping 14 points total, Lexy close behind with 12 and Karen on her heels with 10 points. Let's Go Girls!
