Hopewell 5th Grade Girls End Great Season with Loss in Championship Game



Despite not ending the way they had hoped it would, it was a great season for the Hopewell 5th Grade Girls Travel Basketball Team.

Sunday started with a semifinal matchup for the Lady Vikings against the Blackhawk Cougars.

In a tight contest, Hopewell pulled out a 17-15 win which propelled them into the championship game.

Early on, Hopewell trailed 7-4 but went on an 8-0 run which gave them a lead they’d never lose.

Hopewell Scoring vs. Blackhawk
Rilynn Davis: 8 points
Lydia Jaquay: 4 points
Isla Rock: 3 points
Cora Quinn: 2 points

Unfortunately, Coach Yurcina’s team didn’t have much time to enjoy that win and sit for the next game as 5 minutes after the Blackhawk win, they were back on the court taking on a very talented Aliquippa team.

Hopewell started out well and were tied with Aliquippa at 10 but the Quips followed that up with a 10-0 run to ice the game.

Final Score: Aliquippa 29 Hopewell 16. The Vikings were led by Rilynn Davis who scored 14 points while Neveah Pope scored 2 points.

Following the game, the 5th grade team handed out team awards for this season.
