The 8th grade boys improved to 9-1 on the year and 7-0 in the conference after beating the Rangers at Forest Park. The Rebels jumped out to a 14-8 first quarter lead but Forest Park was able to cut it to 2 by half time. The boys extended their lead throughout the 3 quarter on great ball movement and penetration. Forest Park made a late rally by capitalizing on several Rebel missed free throw opportunities. But the Rebels were able to settle down and knock down a few from the line and got stops on defense when it mattered most. Cale Donoho had a big night for the Rebels and led all scorers with 27 points. Kaydin Duvall followed that with 12 of his own.
The Rebels played a 12 minute, running clock, B game but came up short – losing 7-8. William Shoulders made 2 nice driving layins and finished with 4 points. Jackson Lashley had 3.
The boys will welcome Owensboro Catholic to SSMS on Monday night. 7th grade game starts at 5:30 with the 8th grade to follow.
