KINCAID — Monday night meant Senior Night in Kincaid. The South Fork girls basketball team hosted Bunker Hill for the non-conference matchup. The dominant “Run and Gun” style of basketball secured the win for the Ponies, 51-25 the final.
“We wanted to come out here on Senior Night, represent these seniors and get them a good win.” Head Coach Josh Mulvaney said. Seniors Alexus Montgomery, Mia Pop and Rylie Burney lead the charge against the Minutemen on this chilly January night. The three combined for 21 total points as Pop went three for three at the free throw line and put up seven. While Burney made four 3-pointer and 14 points in the contest.
“Started out a little flat but eventually turned it up a notch.” Head Coach Jash Mulvaney commented after the game. “When we could get out and run we didn’t feel like they could keep up with us.”
That’s where this team shined. A big majority of the points were fast break steals in transiton. Beautiful Mia Pop passes to her sister for the easy lay- up. The junior, Gianna Pop, finished with 11 points in the contest.
Sophomore Jayden Neal played incredible defense as well as adding a point to the 51 point total.
Bunker Hill struggled to keep up with the fast paced gallop of the Ponies. They went on to defeat the Minutemen 51-25.
The South Fork 2021- 2022 season motto? “Change”.
“Change the culture and the way not only we feel about this program but how our opponents feel about this program as well.” said the proud Head Coach.
Putting up four wins last season, Mulvaney and the Ponies set their ’21-’22 regular season goal high.
The team wanted to double their win total. Well on Senior Night they reached 12 wins TRIPLING their wins from just a season ago.
Next up for the South Fork girls team will be home once again. The Ponies will face off against Riverton on Wednesday night. Tip-off will be 6:00 pm.
