JH Boys Basketball vs Driver 11/19/12
November 21, 2012By Mike Thornburg of Monroe Central Jr.- Sr. High School
The 7th grade boys are now 3-0 after an exciting win over arch rival Driver 39-35. Big man Tucker Young hit the go ahead basket with 2.7seconds left and Wyatt Snyder hit a 3 at the buzzer to seal it. Another great job by all the guys.
The 8th grade Bears fell to the Driver Hawks last night 51-36. After answering a good Hawks team basket for basket most of the 1st half, the Bears' could not answer the the next Hawk rally, and the Hawks extended their lead to double digits going into the half. Despite a couple surges in the the 2nd half the Bears could not cut into the lead, Driver always seemed to answer right back with a run of their own. Although we suffered the loss we can learn alot from the game and continue to get better everyday in practice. The 8th grade record is now 1-2 and the Bears' do not play again until after the Thanksgiving Holiday.
