Eagles News · 8th Grade Boy Basketball Loses Home Opener Vs Newaygo

The 8th grade boys played the Lions at home last night, and battled right to the very end of the game.  In the first quarter, the Eagles hung in there, but after several transition baskets by Newaygo in second quarter, the score at halftime was 28-10 in favor of the Lions.  In the last 2 quarters the Eagles seemed to make better passes, play better help defense, and get back to stop the Lions fast break.  The final score was 48-20, but the Eagles never gave up.  The players agreed that we have several fundamental things to work, to make us better as a team.
