THE JFK LADY ISLANDERS HAVE BEEN ON FIRE TO START THE SEASON. They’ve won 3 straight, making them undeafeated and giving them the number one rank in the standings. That was until 2-1 Okkodo strolled over to challenge the streak.
Lady Bulldogs struggle to get shots to fall early in the game. After a lucky bounce, Okkodo is able to inbound the pass and drive the lane for a lay-up.BULLDOGS, on the board! Lady Islanders, defense, again, gives up some easy points in the paint. Yet, again, the bulldogs get an easy lay-up for 2! Okkodo showing up on “D” as well. Lady Bulldogs crash the boards, get it going the other way, and YEAH you guessed it another Okkodo basket made. JFK not 3-0 for no reason. Here come the scrappy Lady Islander offense. The pressure is on but JFK grind it out and manage to find some separation in the defense and score 2. Back the other way, bulldogs refuse to be rattled. They continue doing them. They work the ball around and it’s Lori Okada with the finish underneath. JFK trying to come back from trailing the whole game. Try as the might islanders can’t stop Okkodo. Lady Bulldogs float past JFK and give them their first lost of the season. 53-51 the final in Tamuning.
