G-R 8th Grade Boys Basketball 3-0 By Coach Steve Luethje
December 20, 2013
Tuesday, Dec. 10th, G-R 8th grade Boys Basketball team traveled to West Marshall. G-R won the game 38-34, now 3-0 on year. This was the closest game we had this season. Up 1 point at half and we had to fight all game to pull it out. The Rebels were never up more than 5 points and only fell behind early 3 times in game by a point, but it played out to tight game with several ties throughout, as we managed a few critical baskets late in the game. The young Rebels were led by several team players, with balanced scoring coming from: Matt Johannsen, Caden Kickbush and Walker Thede all with 8 pts. each, Gage Murty 6 pts., Mason Skovgard 4 points, Joel Davis with a huge 3 point shot late, and Hunter Smoldt 1 pt., We played two quarters of 2nd “B game” to allow for some good play time for all players at State Center. Helping out with rebounds, assists and steals were Kyle Koppen, Will Blakesley, Owen Beach, and absent were Josh Peterson and Bryce Schick. Our upcoming schedule is Dec. 13th at Gladbrook vs. East Marshall, Dec. 19th at Gladbrook vs. Grundy Center, with a starting time of 4:15p.m. for 8th graders.
