G-R 8th Boys BB get win over Spartans By Coach Steve Luethje
January 18, 2013
Monday, Jan. 14th, G-R 8th grade Boys Basketball traveled to Grundy Center and we won the game 43-36, now 5-3 on season. This was a well coach Grundy Center team that was trying to pull out the border win against the Rebels. Our Rebels found themselves making many defensive mistakes that are somewhat uncharacteristic for this team as we gave up a double digit lead, and game control. We managed to regroup and fight back to secure this win. I left thinking maybe that was not so bad, as we grew up a little during this game, these young Rebels dug down and positively responded to adversity. This was team victory with 6 players scoring and we were led by Joe Smoldt who had 21 pts, Thomas Mussig and Matt Roeding 6 pts each, Tyler Pierce and Erik Knaack 4 pts each, and Alex Tscherter 2 pts, with Jed Peterson 4 rebounds, and Jaden McGhee with big defense stop towards the end of the game. We have 4 games left and our upcoming schedule is, Jan 15th at Union, Jan 17th at Radcliffe, Jan 22 at Gladbrook vs. East Marshall, our final game is Jan 28th at Gladbrook vs. A-P, with starting time of 4:15p.m. for 8th graders, and 7th grade boys game to follow.
