Dominant Performance Tonight by the Hopewell Girls Basketball 4th, 5th and 6th Grade Teams



In sports, there are time when your team(s) is just more talented than your opponent.

Regardless of what you try and do as a coach to try and respect your opponent and not try and run the score up it becomes difficult.

That was the case tonight for the Hopewell Girls Basketball 4th, 5th and 6th grade teams as they hosted the Rochester Rams. All three Hopewell coaches made plenty of substitutions and played their entire rosters but the overall talent on their rosters were far superior to that of Rochester.

It was nice to see that despite the lopsided scores, both teams showed great sportsmanship throughout all three contests.

In the first game of the evening, the Hopewell 4th grade win won by the score of 29-1.


The next game with the 5th graders was pretty much the same things as the Vikings dominated play from the opening tip enroute to a 28-10 victory.
