November 16, 2012By Mike Thornburg of Monroe Central Jr.- Sr. High School
7th Grade game:Wyatt Synder hit the game winning shot with 2.1 seconds left to defeat Yorktown 32-31 in the Den last night. The Bears trailed all the first half and most of the second and battled back to defeat the Tigers. The win makes the Bears record 2-0 on the early season. The Bears travel to face county rival Driver on Monday night. Practice after school. Great Job guys!!!!!!!!
8th Grade game:The 8th grade Bears fell to a very talented and very big Yorktown team last night 39-26. Despite the size from the Tigers, the Bears battled hard for 4 quarters trying to cut into the Tirgers' lead. Unfortunately whenever the boys would make a run, it seemed as if Yorktown would have a run of their own to answer with. It was a great team effort on defense and on the glass for the Bears, however Tigers proved to be too much as their size became the ultimate factor in the end. Next game is at Driver on Monday.
