SHARE Homewood-Flossmoor recovers, thumps Bolingbrook

Faith Suggs had a chip on her shoulder.

Bria Stallworth had ringing in her ears.

The Homewood-Flossmoor locker room wasn’t a fun place to be when Vikings coach Tony Smith gave a motivational speech at halftime of Tuesday night’s Southwest Suburban Blue game against visiting Bolingbrook.

After eight minutes, H-F trailed 16-6, had committed nine turnovers, missed myriad wild shots and was in a 6-0 hole in fouls.

It wasn’t much better after two quarters, Bolingbrook still leading 26-21.

To be sure, the Vikings heard about it.

“It wasn’t a good time,” a smiling Stallworth said after H-F’s 70-50 victory.
