In the rare high school sports occasion where a team plays on back-to-back nights, the situation offers a chance for redemption, much the way a major league baseball season does.
On Thursday night, Bermudian Springs High's girls' basketball team buried itself with a bad start.
Oh, how 24 hours can change things.
The Eagles played a complete basketball game on Friday night, defeating Greenwood 59-41 in the consolation game of the Bermudian Springs' Holiday Tournament.
Camp Hill won the championship game 45-39 over Boiling Springs, with forward Kierra Mitchell being named tournament MVP.
"We did exactly what I emphasized, defensive intensity and ball pressure," Bermudian head coach Kari Cover said after the consolation win. "We played a full four quarters."
The Eagles, who turned the ball over 27 times on Thursday, came up with 27 steals on Friday night, with Shannon Kuhn, Taylor Mayers, Klohie Sourbeer and Abby Hoffman all recording more than four pilfers of possession.
"We were all up on the fullcourt, trying to deny (Greenwood's Hattie Kuhns) the basketball," Cover said.
Kuhns scored just three field goals for a total of 10 points.
Shannon Kuhn, meanwhile, shined for the Eagles by racking up 25 points, seven steals, six rebounds and two assists.
"She works incredibly hard," Cover said of her team's leading scorer. "I told her that I see her as an offensive threat, and not just a shooting threat. Tonight, she looked to attack the basket and not only score, but penetrate and dish. She is very unselfish."
Abby Hoffman added 14 points for the Eagles, with many coming on drives down the middle of the lane.
With the game tied at 6-all in the first quarter, Kuhn scored a putback layup, and the Eagles never again trailed despite never putting together a run bigger than 8-0.
Greenwood trailed 27-15 before closing the first half with a 6-0 run to make it 27-21 at the break.
"You've got to give them credit," Cover said of Greenwood. "They worked hard. Fortunately, we had depth to rely on."
Bermudian didn't pull away until the fourth quarter, when Kuhn hit two late 3-pointers. She hit four shots from beyond the arc in the contest.
Kuhn was named to the all-tournament team, along with Greenwood's Emily Fisher, Camp Hill's Leah Springer and Boiling Springs' Casie Hostetter and Taylor Malinish.Bermudian Springs Holiday Tournament
