Fullerton escapes Husky rally

The S-RC boys nearly nipped Fullerton at the end of the Jan. 30 game at Shelby. The Warriors won 57-56.

“Our effort on defense was excellent tonight,” said S-RC coach Grant Gabel. “We did a great job of creating shots in transition off of steals and getting second chance shots. Our 12 offensive rebounds played a huge part in our comeback in the fourth quarter. We were one stop away from getting the win tonight, we just couldn’t do it.”

Austin Coffin poured in 21 points, including 4 of 7 three point shots. Jett Pinneo scored 9, and Antonio Lopez and Max Hoatson each added 8.

Tigers fall at McCool Junction

East Butler led at the halftime, but the McCool Junction Mustangs blazed in the second half for a 61-45 home court win on Jan. 30.

The Tigers led 30-28 at the half, but they couldn’t keep up with the Mustangs’ Giovanni Riga, who led all scorers with 24 points. The Mustangs dropped in 8 threes to The Tigers’ one.

“The second half was just a mess, we shot poorly, turned it over and apparently fouled too much,” said East Butler coach Greg Jahde. “We were called for 16 fouls to their seven. We just have to do better. We didn’t’ rebound well either. Trevor had 14 of our 21 rebounds.”

Tigers storm Storm

East Butler made it tough for High Plains to get to the basket in on the court at Brainard on Feb. 2, winning 66-22.

The Storm struggles got worse in the second half, only getting a pair of buckets in the third quarter while the Tigers sent in the reserves.

“We did a lot of good things in this game,” East Butler coach Greg Jahde said. “It starts with defens then carried over to taking care of the ball. We only had 4 turnovers all game. Then we really focused on getting our scorers the ball. If we can play this well and this hard going forward, we are going to be dangerous.”
