Galesburg Silver Streaks Girls Basketball vs Olney Tigers


The Galesburg Silver Streaks lost in the 3rd place game to come home with the 4th place trophy from the Mattoon Holiday Tournament as they fell to Olney 54-43. The Streaks got down early in this one as the just really had trouble getting a shot to fall. They were down 16-8 midway though the first but able to make a come back going on an 8-0 run and the game was tied at 16 at the end of the first quarter. From there the Streaks got out scored 13-9, 13-8, and 12-10 the rest of the way and just really couldn’t over come the deficit having to come out with a full court press through the 3rd and 4th quarters on tired legs and this being the fifth game in just three days. Our Dave’s Autobody Crunch-Time Player of the Game was Andrea Sampson who finished with 9 point on 3 3-pointers and a key element in that first quarter comeback. The Streaks now fall to 11-7 on the year with their next action coming up Thursday night back in the Western Big 6 Conference as they play host to the Quincy Blue Devils.
