G-R 8th Grade Boys Basketball by Coach Steve Luethje
January 27, 2012
Gladbrook - Reinbeck 8th Grade Boys Basketball move to 11-0 on Season Thursday, Jan. 24th, G-R 8th grade Boys Basketball traveled south to Gilman to play East Marshall. The Rebels won 72-11, now 11–0 overall. The Mustangs are little down this year, they started the season with six 8th graders out, but only have 2 8th graders still on their roster, so they used a mix of 7-8th graders. We held back and played no full court pressure defense, but that did not matter much, we simply played some good ball and shot a season high 62% from the field. We had some referees who were going to enforce the rule book and call a proper close game, no hand checking, a foul was a foul, traveling was a call game. I’m sure a few of our older fans can relate to this, as yes, once in great while the true rules are still enforced. I must admit I like it when you’re the more skill full team, but this led to one of the East Marshall fans being ejected. Our fans were great and our player above reproach so we came away with a better understanding of another type of adversity and how to see the positives in everything we do. Leading the Rebels were Tyler Eiffler with 19 pts, and Eric Stoakes 15 points, Jake Schuman and Dalton Schwartz 8 pts each, Josh Cooley and Brock Bystricky 7 pts each, Colton Dinsdale 6 pts, Jake Mohlis 2 pts, and Bryce Clark just as importantly had a solid 3 rebound night. Cleary Eric Stoakes, Jake Schuman, & Jake Mohlis played one of their best Junior High games tonight, we still are improving! Our last game is Mon Jan 30th vs. A-P at Aplington with starting times 4:15p.m. for the 8th graders.
