JV boys fall to Moberly in Southern Boone JV Tournament
December 6, 2012Hallsville High School
from JV Coach Jordan Carmack
Wednesday night the JV Indians traveled to Southern Boone to take on the Moberly Spartans in the first round of the Southern Boone JV Tournament. The game started out very slow in the first half. The Indians could never really get anything going offensively and the Spartans seemed to hit every three pointer they shot and that led them to a 28-17 advantage at the half.
The third quarter really hurt the Indians last night as the Spartans came out and sank 4 three pointers on their way to beating the Indians 22-10 in the third period. The Indians were down 50-27 heading into the final period. The game changed a little in the fourth quarter when the Indians went with their full court press. This led to many turnovers from the Spartans and easy baskets by the Indians. However the hole that had been dug by the Indians was to big to climb out of and they came out on the wrong side of a 59-44 score.
The boys showed great will and heart in the final period when many other teams would have folded and we learned some good things from this game for our team that we hope to use going forward. Our scoring was pretty balanced once again and we were led in scoring by Mason McCaleb with 12 followed by Octavius Johnson and Joey Forge with 9 each.
Don't forget to come out and support the Varsity Indians tonight at the Centralia Tournament against Salisbury at 6 p.m.. Our next action will be on Saturday at 11 a.m. as we travel back to Southern Boone for the third place game in the tournament.
