Lady Sequoits take on the Eagles in a rematch between crosstown rivals and dominate.

On Wednesday, Jan. 17, the Antioch Community High School girls basketball team took on the Eagles of Lakes in their second showdown of the year. The game was a thriller to watch and the Sequoits did not disappoint their fans.

To start the game, the Sequoits came out swinging, outscoring the Eagles 18-11 by the end of the first. In the high scoring quarter for the ladies, sophomore Heidi Rathmann led the team in scoring with 12 points. She knocked down two three-pointers and had three layups out of the gate.

The second quarter did not have as much scoring, going into halftime with a score of 26-18 favoring the Sequoits. Throughout the period, both teams racked up a lot of fouls. When the horn sounded, ACHS had three players in foul trouble. Rathmann, sophomore Addie Webb, and senior Hailey Caya all had three fouls and had to spend some time on the bench so they would not draw any more.

As the third quarter started, the Eagles were on fire. Lakes senior Madison Twarling scored 10 of the 16 points for the Eagles. Not letting the run get to them, the Sequoits headed to the fourth quarter still maintaining a lead with the score being 35-34.
