Class 2A girls basketball: Northeast takes down Fairview

by Jacob Unruh Published: March 8, 2013

Northeast forced 12 turnovers in the first half, but it was Edwards’ quick hands that really made a difference.

She finished with five steals and a team-high 13 points.

“The thing with T’ona is she’s always been defensive minded since we started last year,” Perry said. “She understands her opponent so she goes in with the mindset that even if the person has more ability or potentially is supposed to be better, she goes in with the mindset that I’m going to play my game and I’m going to expose theirs.”

Senior Olivia Mason scored 18 points and grabbed nine rebounds for the Jackets, who led just once in the contest and was never successful in trying to reproduce the late rally they made last season.

“Good teams are going to make runs,” Edwards said. “Staying focused was our key and we had to make sure we do a lot better at the end of the game because teams aren’t going to back down.

“A lot of people play their best games when they play us and we have to continue to fight no matter what the score looks like.”
