Stat Lightning: Dublin Davis Irish Report

And we're back. Dick Lightning and friends hope your Holidays were happy as we bring in the new year with Coach Obrynba's Dublin Davis Irish 8th Grade Girls Basketball team . Still looking for the shut out victory, the Crazy Ukrainian Daren Obrynba will have to go back to the drawing board, as the new year heralded the end of Dublin Davis' SEVEN game winning streak. Going into the Holiday rush like an exploded dam, the 8th grade girls of Dublin Davis waved goodbye to Westerville St. Paul, doubling the efforts of their competitors en route to a one sided 30-14 victory on 12/20.
But success coupled with school vacation led to a loss of focus when the Girls returned to the hardwood gymnasium floor on 1/8 against Hilliard Memorial. In an off night, the team wasn't able to get the offense going, scoring only 4 points, the entire second half. Obrynba's Dublin Davis Irish fell to 7-1, by score of 21-17. Looking to rebound quickly two nights later, the Dublin Davis Irish took on Hilliard Weaver but were unable to secure the victory, trailing 24-19. With five games remaining in the season, there's still plenty of time for Coach Obrynba and the 8th grade girls to rededicate themselves and come back swinging.
