Fessy Red Shows Incredible Grit & Effort as Comeback at Park School Falls Short
On Tuesday afternoon, members of the JVB Red team traveled to Park School for our first interscholastic basketball game of the season. The boys were very excited about our first game against another school.
Early on, we fell behind, as Park had some very strong guard play that was able to fight through our pick-and-roll offense. Fletcher P and Chase L both had 4 points for our team. Mac D, David A, and Tony W showed great hustle and grit on defense to keep us in the game. At the half, we trailed 28-12.
However, in the second half, we mounted our comeback. Elan L and Kai M, using their height to their advantage, were HUGE (literally and figuratively) for us, collecting many offensive rebounds and scoring points of their own. Jadon K and Max Y each had multiple steals on defense and helped our offense transition to fast break. Ollie B made 2 3-point shots late in the game. Sam N and Jax K each added some 2-point jump shots to help keep the game close.
In the end, Park was able to maintain their lead and hang on for the victory. However, the story of today is all about the heart and hustle that we showed throughout the entire game; never letting the scoreboard dictate our efforts. We have lots to be proud of, and look forward to getting back on the court later this week. Go Bears!
