Game 11
 

Home Up


 

    Today's game was one of those games where you can't help but feel that the boys should have walked away winners, but their inability to stop one particular player cost them dearly. Number 10 on the opposing team was pretty much an unstoppable force today, rebounding and scoring almost at will. While the Broncho boys attempted a furious fourth quarter comeback once again, this time it wasn't meant to be. They managed to force a missed free throw with less than a minute remaining and down three, but an uncalled push off by #10 and an uncalled out of bounds play resulted in taking away any chance that they had at victory. By the time the final whistle blew, Tyler and his teammates wound up on the losing end of a 41-36 score.

    Tyler got his first start of the year today, and he made the most of it. While he went scoreless in his time on the court today, he was aggressive all around. He didn't make any turnovers, and forced a jump ball with the other teams tallest, best player (the aforementioned #10). Speaking of the other teams tallest, best player - it turns out his Dad was a former Detroit Lion, who also happens to be a current teacher in the Lapeer school district where his son plays. While the Lapeer Zemmer coach was assessed a technical foul during the game, our coach and most of our fans actually believe that it was this kids dad who earned it. The ref spent quite a bit of time talking to him about it after making the call. I guess it worked, because at crunch time the refs swallowed their whistles as his kid pushed off on a rebound, pretty much handing the game to Zemmer. By the time we were able to get the ball back there wasn't nearly enough time left in the game to make any real attempt at a comeback.
