Joshua Bilski ’16: Playing MAC Red rival Eisenhower for the second time this season, the boys basketball team came into this game with hopes of building momentum leading up to playoffs. Unfortunately, the Eagles reigned supreme and defeated the Bulldogs, 47-55.
Surging in first quarter, the Bulldogs lead 16-6 after the first eight minutes of play.
“We came out with fire in the first quarter,” Zach Palmer ‘17 said. “I hoped we could carry that fire in the next three quarters.”
Making the necessary changes, the Eagles pulled away in the third quarter and did not look back. Keeping it interesting, the Bulldogs lost a tight one 46-55.
Hindering the Bulldogs effort, the boys committed 19 fouls in the second half.
“We’re playing a lot better basketball at the most important point of the year.” Paul Hurley ‘17 said.
Leading the way for the team, Mitch Heimbuch ‘16 dropped 17 points. Playing the point, Hurley controlled the offense and scored five points. Accompanying Heimbuch down low, Palmer added eight points.
With this latest loss, the team’s record sits at 4-14. Next on the clock, the L’Anse Creuse Lancers Friday night.
