Game #1

8:00am
Holly Middle School 1st Half 2nd Half Final
Mark Carney State Farm 8 8 16
Nichol's Heating & Cooling 11 16 27
 

This morning's game marked the opener for Drew and his State Farm team in the Broncho Basketball league. Thanks in large part to the school calendar, the team hasn't had many practices, and when they do not all of the players are able to make it. Drew himself has conflicts on both of the nights that the team has practice scheduled and is only able to make half of those, and has only made one practice so far.

With all that in mind, the season got off to a bit of a slow start for our team in maroon. Though they scored the first basket of the game to take a 2-0 lead, they struggled in a lot of aspects of the game. A lack of rebounding really hurt the team, not only in the first half, but the entirety of the game. Drew scored a single basket in the half, and his team trailed by a score of 11-8 at halftime. Things got worse in the second half, as second chance points really hurt the State Farm team. A late surge made the score look a little closer, but as the game ended it was the opposition that came out on top by a score of 27-16.

Drew did end up with two points on that first half basket, and he had two rebounds and two blocks to complete his stat line.

...and out-jumping the opposing player...

...and winning the tap for his team.

Drew taking a free-throw after being fouled on a shot attempt...

...and sending the ball towards the rim...

...and watching as it approaches the goal...

...but bouncing off the rim to the right.

Drew taking his second free-throw...

..sending it in the air...

...but it hit the rim...

...and went off to the left this time.

The final score of the first game of the season resulted in a loss for Drew and his teammates, by a score of 27-16.
