Girls varsity basketball preview: Lowell Red Arrows


Coming off of their fifth straight conference win, the Lady Rangers will head to Lowell tonight. This Red Arrows team has had a spectacular season so far, going 13-3 overall and undefeated in the conference. Lowell sits in first place of the OK White, with FHC right behind them in second with a 7-2 league record.

The last time these two rivals played was an unusually flat game for the Rangers and Lowell won very convincingly. Tonight, FHC looks for redemption. With very cohesive offense lately and overall playing as a unit, the Rangers are a much different team at this point in the season than the Red Arrows saw a month ago. However, anticipating that Lowell will underestimate this team will work to FHC’s advantage as they commonly perform better when in an underdog mentality.

Lowell is very aggressive and quick and the Rangers will have to bring their best defense to shut down this conference leader. The Red Arrows had a narrow 5 point victory over Forest Hills Northern earlier this week, whom FHC beat earlier in the season. The Rangers look to make this game much more competitive than the last matchup, out-work their opponent, and come out with a win tonight.
