After agonizing over the memory of multiple teams erasing second half deficits and beating her team this season, Waterford coach Dena Brechtl was happy her team finally got to return the favor.
Waterford battled back from a 4-point deficit in the final minute of regulation and then took over in overtime to pull out an impressive 60-56 victory over Greendale in non-conference action Thursday, Jan 5.
The Wolverines later knocked off Waukesha South 42-30 and earned their first three-game winning streak of the season before falling in a Southern Lakes Conference contest on Tuesday against Badger.
“It was a wild game, but it was still nice winning the overtime game against Greendale,” Brechtl said. “We could have potentially 4 more wins this season but we blew leads late in games against Burlington, Elkhorn, Stoughton and East Troy.”
Instead, Waterford will have to settle for incremental improvement over the past three games.
“We keep improving and looking to just get better,” Brechtl said. “We’re trying to make sure all the finesse we had in our game doesn’t lead to sloppy play and focus on execution.”
