After having there seven game win streak snapped on Friday at Johannesburg-Lewiston with a final score of 36-48, the junior varsity boys had some refocusing to do.
“The guys were able to autocorrect their own mistakes and worked as a team to get a tough win against a good team in Bellaire,” coach Lee Nash said. “We were able to run our new offensive sets very well with good ball movement from the guards.”
During Friday’s game, the tough defense Nash likes to have was not there. Monday, on the other hand, the tough defense returned.
“We really got back to our old defense against Bellaire,” Nash said.
“We really played well as a team, which wasn’t there on Friday,” freshman Cleveland Baker said. “Our defensive showed up, and we got the win.”
Caeden Blumke lead the team in scoring with 14 points. Cleveland Baker and Luke Mayer each had 10.
“We were able to work as a team and move the ball around, but we still have things to work on,” freshman Blumke said.
Final score: 42-27.
They play Cheboygan on Wednesday at home.
