JV Boys Get into Win Column
The NMC Stingers JV boys’ basketball team had two games last week. According to Coach Shawn Madak, “They started off with a game against the Glenboro Panthers. We were able to put up a few quick points to start the game, but Glenboro quickly found their rhythm. Glenboro took an early 22-7 first quarter lead. The Panthers kept pouring it on for the rest of the game and we couldn't find our rhythm and kept making poor passes that were easily intercepted. Glenboro easily took this one 75-30. Our top scorers were Israel Hamraev with 11 points, 9 rebounds and 6 steals and Colton Wall with 8 points and 5 rebounds.”
“The JV boys had a quick turnaround and had to face Pilot Mound the following night. We started off much stronger in this game and it was a tie game after the first quarter with both teams at 14 points. It was a high scoring second quarter for both teams but at the end of the first half we were able to earn a modest two point lead going into half time. In the second half our defense picked up and Pilot Mound had a difficult time scoring. We were able to increase our lead throughout the second half and picked up our first JV win of the season with a final score of 87-66. Our top scorers were once again Israel with 33 points and 8 rebounds and Colton with 17 points and 15 rebounds.”
The next JV game is in Somerset against Prairie Mountain with the Sr. boys also playing that night against the Predators.
