Smyrna stuns Tech with fourth quarter comeback
GEORGETOWN, Del. – Smyrna stormed all the way back from a double-digits fourth quarter deficit to stun Sussex Tech, 39-38, Friday evening.
Tech’s 13-2 run to begin the second quarter opened up an 11-point lead, but dwindled to five by halftime. The lead ballooned back to eleven in the opening minutes of the fourth.
Smyrna began to chip away. Glennyce James knocked down a pair of 3-pointers to cut the Tech lead to just two in the final two minutes. Skylar Curley’s lay-up off of a fast break in the final minute tied the game.
Tech decided to hold the ball for the final shot of the game, but turned it over, leading to a foul on a shot by Jayde Rivera. Rivera made the first of her two free throws to give Smyrna their first lead since the first quarter with 4.5 seconds to go.
One last heave sailed over the rim, and the Eagles left Georgetown with the one-point victory to move to 2-0 on the season.
