Game 6
 

Home Up


 

    Tyler and his teammates played through a tough first quarter today against the Clio Carter Middle School, as both teams struggled to score in a defensive battle. Things picked up a little in the second quarter, and the Bronchos led by 5 points at halftime, 16-11. It looked as though the boys might be able to pull away a bit in the third quarter, but Clio hung tough and narrowed the gap to four points after three quarters. The Bronchos controlled a majority of the fourth quarter as well, but two key 3-point shots by Clio late in the game made it close. Holly could have hung on to the ball at the end of the game, passing it around to kill the clock, but an ill-advised shot or two probably wound up costing them the game as Clio was able to drive the lane and make a layup with less than 10 seconds left, giving them a one point lead. A last second shot by Holly came up short, and the Bronchos suffered their second loss of the season, by a 34-33 score.

    Tyler played two strong stretches today, driving the lane for a tough layup for his only two points of the game, while also making some strong defensive plays as well. Unlike last game, this time his team on the court with him was more than able to hold their own against Clio. I think this strong play was what allowed him to earn more quality time today. If he keeps up the hard work it will only lead to good things the rest of the season.
