Hopewell HS Girls Basketball Loses Tough Game Against Central Valley

Published

on

Last night against Central Valley, the Hopewell High School Girls team was the better team for three quarters.

But as we all know, basketball is a four-quarter game and unfortunately for the Vikings, Central Valley was the better team in the final eight minutes and left Hopewell High School with a 43-36 win. A big storyline last night was the number of fouls that were called in the game. Borth Christy Sunday and Caylee Sundy fouled out and Allison Ramaley played a majority of the game with four fouls. This problem was made worse by the fact that Hopewell, whose depth is limited to begin with, was playing without a valuable starter.

Hopewell finished the 2023-24 season with a section record of 5-5 and has one remaining game, next Monday in a non-conference game against Northgate. This will be Senior Night.

Following the game against Northgate, the Vikings will wait for the WPIAL to unveil the playoff bracket.

Here’s a recap of Monday night’s contest:

1ST QUARTER:
*Sophomore Caylee Sundy opened the scoring by drippling the length of the court and finishing a layup. Hopewell 2-0
