|Drew and his Holly Bronchos teammates took on the Lapeer
Lightning team at home today, in game number four of the season
(although game three was postponed - I just prefer not to renumber
all of the sheets that use the game numbers). Watching the Lapeer
boys warm up it seemed as though this was going to be a tough
contest for Holly, as the Lapeer team was quite tall and shot the
ball well. Once the game got underway, things didn't turn out how I
had envisioned - Holly was the one that was able to dominate the
action on the court. They even managed to grab their first lead of
the season! The majority of the game was close, with Holly
maintaining their lead through the majority of the contest, but
still finding themselves down by 1 after the third quarter. The
Bronchos would dominate the final 8 minutes of action, outscoring
Lapeer 15-2 to earn their first victory of the season!
Drew had a
rough week leading up to this game, missing school and practices
thanks to a bout of the flu. I fully expected him to sit out the
entire contest, but he actually got on the court for the final 3:06
of the first half. His only mark on the stat sheet was a single
rebound, but he made his effort count on the defensive end.
Here's hoping this victory is just a start for the team, leading
to bigger victories in the future!
