King Girls Go Cold in Loss to Greens Farms

King's girls basketball team never got warm from the floor during Monday's Fairchester Athletic Association game against Greens Farms Academy. And during one second-half stretch, the Vikings were so cold they seemed to be suffering from frostbite.

GFA escaped with a 32-28 victory, rallying from a 23-14 deficit with 10:15 left in regulation. The Vikings (3-3) went 8:08 without a basket, allowing the Dragons to force a 25-25 tie at the end of regulation. The Vikings, who shot 10 for 59 from the field (17 percent) stayed cold in overtime, shooting just 1 for 7 with three turnovers. King was also 1 for 4 from the foul line in the fourth quarter.

"We had our opportunities,'' coach Jack Kelly said. "We missed a lot of shots, but I have to give credit to GFA's defense."

Sam Karp scored 14 points to lead King, and Tatiana Brown had 10. King led for most of the game, taking a 14-11 halftime lead and expanding it to nine when Greta Savickaite scored on an inside basket with 10:15 remaining. With GFA denying penetration by Brown and Domonique Carter-Stanley, King struggled to hit shots from the perimeter.

GFA took its first lead since 9-8 when Alexa Dudley raced coast-to-coast after a turnover for a 3-point play 43 seconds into overtime. GFA stretched the lead to five, 30-25, on a basket by Alexa Sullivan and held off the Vikings over the final three minutes.

"We got hurt on the boards a little bit,'' Kelly said. "We didn't do a good job of boxing out. Their coach did a good job of mixing up defenses. This is a tough way to start the league season."
