Polk stages a second half comeback to defeat Hendersonville 57-48Published 5:42pm Thursday, February 14, 2013
“We came out in the first half of Senior Night, all the girls were a little emotional in the locker room so we came out a little slow,” he said. “We shot poorly again (30 percent for the game). Then at halftime we talked about we had a little fun the first half.”
But Culbreth explained it was time to get down to business. Polk refocused and came out and almost matched their first half scoring (22) in the third quarter.
“We came out and scored 20 points in the third quarter,” Culbreth said. “One of the big differences from last game was the (Aaliyah) Waddell girl. Hendersonville only scored 24 points last time and she scored 27 by herself this game. We could not stop her.”
Polk’s turn around put them up 42-36 going into the fourth quarter and they further extended the lead outscoring Hendersonville 15 -12 for the final score of 57-48.
Polk County – 9, 13, 20, 15 – 57
