Poor first quarters came back to haunt the NFV girls’ basketball team last week as it dropped the first two games of the season.

 Tuesday, Nov. 27, in Jackson Junction, Turkey Valley hit the TigerHawks with a 21-8 blitz in the opening quarter. The next eight minutes were also bad as the Trojan press put NFV in a 37-18 hole at the break. NFV would rally in the second half, but fell, 60-53.

 After facing the 19-point deficit to start the second half, the TigerHawks righted the ship, outscoring TV, 35-23, over the final 16 minutes. NFV even pulled to within three points, 51-48, with two minutes to play. However, the Trojans held on for the win. The big difference came at the foul line as TV hit 19 of 32 to just 4-9 for NFV.
