Five Matrix Teams Go 15-5 at Flames Regional Warm-Up
The Matrix had a great showing at last weekend's Flames Regional Warm-Up Tournament going 15-5 at the CSC.  A quick summary of each team's weekend's results are:
  • 11U Green (4-0) -- Coach Paul's team was on fire all weekend going undefeated against the Vogues and some PA teams.
  • 9U Green (3-1) -- Coach Jameson's girls recorded 3 big wins on Saturday and then gave the Fairfax Stars 9U National team all they could handle for most of the game on Sunday before falling in the second half.
  • 12U Green (3-1) -- The only blemish on Coach Cannon's team's weekend was a close loss to the Vogues.  In a good warm-up for Districts, 12U Green played two teams in their DQT pool, the Vogues and the Classics-Chili.  
  • 9U Black (3-1) --  Coach Reed's team notched wins vs. two 10U teams and a very strong Vogues 9U National team.  The Vogues win came with 2.5 seconds left; it'll likely be one of many battles between two top teams in the District as the Vogues and 9U Black are in the same pool at Districts.  The team's only loss was by 1-point in OT to a 10N team with a girl 6-feet tall; yes, a 10U 6-footer. 
  • 10U Green (2-2) -- Bounced back from a first game loss to go 2-2 for the tourney. 
Congratulations to all our Matrix player for a great weekend on the hardwood.
