On Offense: Led by Dylan Reyes with 8 points, the Jr. High Leopards fought a tough, come from behind opening game. Scorers include: Leland Romo, Donavin Morrin, Juventino Castillo, and Kaden Scott. The boys played well for their very first game and demonstrated they have what it takes to come back from a deficit. Great job on offense.
On defense: Nathan Lindsey and Kaden Scott led in blocks and turnovers. Leland Romo forced a good amount of turnovers as well. Overall, the boys defense looked good and we were able to contain McNiel’s offense in the last minutes of the game.
With the game at 23 to 21 and 10 seconds left, Gainesville fouled McNeil as the time ran out. McNeil made the first of two free throws, and luckily missed the second, leaving the final score 23 to 22 and Gainesville’s first win.
Catch us in action next week against Bridgeport.
