January 8, 2013By PJ West of Rensselaer Central High School/Middle School
The Rensselaer Central 8th grade boys basketball black team got the second half of their season off to a good start with a 47-29 win at home against Frontier last night. The Bombers showed some rust in the first half, leading 20-12 at halftime, then came out with intensity in the 3rd quarter to put the game away outscoring the Falcons 20-5 in the period. The Bombers were led in scoring by Ben Hillan’s season high 15 points, Landon Balch and Luke Branson both contributed 10, Grant Myers had six and was a big spark in the 3rd quarter run, Evan Brandenburg and Cody Goodman both had 2 and Bryce Nesius and Mark Marzke each had a point. The win moves the Bombers season record to 10-7 and both the black and red teams are at South Newton Tuesday night.
