The Eagles had their final home game of the season before the playoffs start, last night against New Day Academy. The last match between these two teams was heated and this game did not disappoint. The stands were packed and emotions were running high for both the JV and Varsity games.
The JV team got down early, but chipped away at New Day's lead quarter by quarter. The whole team came together and played their best game of the year to rally this come back! The game was within 2 points with a minute left. In the end, the Eagle's shots did not fall when they needed them. Final Score 31-27. Great improvement from the first game against New Day Academy and best game of the season.
Congrats to the JV Seniors: Austin '14, Elpido '14, Armand '14, Colin '14, and Jay '14.
The Varsity game lived up to the expectations and was a back and forth match. The Eagles had many steals for fast break points and kept the intensity of the game high. The Eagles took the first quarter and went into halftime down 2. The Eagles came out to an early second half lead thanks to a full court press. New Day would not go away that easy and charged back, taking control of the fourth quarter. Their lead expanded by knocking down their free throws to a final score of 58 - 69. Great game to both teams and outstanding performances from Jon '15 and DJ '14. The Eagles are now 9-6.
Thank you to the Seniors: Ben '14, DJ '14, Issac '14, Lucian '14, Carl '14, and Leo '14.
The Varsity's next game is for the start of the LEC championship.
