Girls Junior Varsity Basketball, Girls Varsity Basketball · Lady Islanders battle 1st place Riptide


On Monday night, the Lady Islanders, sitting at 4th place, faced off versus the 1st place Riptide. Chas Math and Science came into the contest with a 9-1 record in conference but coming off their first conference loss of the season to Palmetto Scholors Academy. The Lady Islanders came in riding a three game winning streak and 5-4 in conference. The Islanders were looking to avenge an earlier 44-26 loss this year.

The Islanders had a strong first quarter leading 14-8 at the end of it and held their own in the 2nd quarter taking a 24-17 Halftime lead in to the locker room. The game tightened up in the 3rd quarter as the Islanders had to play deeper into the bench as Tyleadh Legare, Sole Stanley, and Twanasia Heyward all had foul trouble. That meant more playing time for Emoni Mack, Sierra Green, Tierra Green, and Nya Givens. They more than held their own as the Islanders led 35-30 going into the 4th quarter. Eventually Tyleah Legare would foul out in the 4th which left the Islanders with a height disadvantage. The Riptide got roling in the 4th quarter scoring 22 points and pulling away from the Islanders 52-44. The Islanders played tough until the final whistle and gained a lot of respect from the crowd as they seem to be growing together as a team.

Next up for the Lady Islanders are the 2nd place Palmetto Scholars Academy Phoenix who are 7-2 in league play. The Islanders at 5-5 and 4th place will travel to the Phoenix with tip off scheduled for 6:15 at Palmetto Scholars at 7499 Dorchester Rd, N Charleston, SC 29418.
