Tuesday the Lions traveled to Pekin to face the panthers for a share of the SEISC lead. The Lions fell behnid early only scoring 12 points in the half and they trailed 28-12. Things did not get much better for the Lions in the opening minutes of the 3rd quarter as the panthers extended the leat to over 20 points. With 4 minutes remaining in the third the Lions stormed back on the shoulders of Trenton Gosnell. TheLions also forced some turn-overs and the Panters missed some free-throws as Lone Tree cut the deficit to 3 with under 2 minutes remaining. Pekin hit a big 3 pointer late in the game and made free-throws down the stretch as Lone Tree loses at Pekin 49-39.
We started too slow and fell behind by too much to overcome, I give our players a lot of credit as they could have cashed it in and got blown out, they fought back and played with a lot of heart, we just did not shoot it well and we did not get to the free-throw line very often as we settled for too many jump shots. I think we will learn a lot from this game. Scoring-Trenton Gosnell 22, Jovonte Squiers 9, Matt Wieland 3, Nick Viner and Shay Hudachek with 2 each, and Travis Gillham with 1, Rebounding-Travis and Trenton with 6, assists-Jovonte with 4.
