ROCKVILLE — A Good Counsel Falcons squad that gave up the lead only once suppressed the Sherwood Warriors Monday night in a Maryland Elite summer league basketball game, 58-43.
Both teams came into the game with handicaps: a slimmer roster due to player commitments over the summer months and depleted of the previous season’s seniors.
The limitations forced the teams to make do with what they had and showcased some of the new up-and-coming talent for both teams. The Falcons were a mostly young team made up of mostly sophomores, according to summer league head coach Anthony Guy.
The Warriors sunk a three-pointer to counter the Falcons’ two-point start, but the Falcons retaliated in force. A six-point scoring streak gave the Falcons the lead and a momentum they never lost throughout the rest of the game.
“Shots are going to fall, some shots are going to come out, there’s going to be turnovers, there’s going to be ebb and flows in the game, but as long as we can control our energy…some things that you can control and we’ve been trying to harp on all summer, especially with the younger guys,” said Guy.
