The 8th grade Rebels lost their second game of the year to a Castle team that had some impressive size. That size advantage along with some turn overs and missed free throw opportunities doomed the Rebels. The boys were able to knock down nine 3 pointers in the game, but only collected 4 field goals inside. Despite the disadvantage in size, the Rebels fought hard and never gave up.
The Rebels also lost the B game by a score of 37-44. The Rebels matched up much better in this game but costly turnovers and poor free throw shooting again cost the B team a victory. Daylen Kennedy led the team with 8 points, followed by Trevor Shoulders and Cade Schiff with 7 each.
The boys will look to regroup before welcoming Southridge to Reo on Thursday for a 5:00 7th grade game. The 8th grade game will start after the 7th grade.
