Well, we came up a little short, but it wasn’t due to lack of effort. The team played extremely hard last night and fought until the very end. The Beavers took a 36-33 lead into half-time and quickly extended the lead to seven. The Grizzly offensive attack was too much for the Beavers as they quickly saw their lead diminish and saw themselves down 13 with late in the contest. The final score was 76-85 and the loss dropped the Beavers to 13-3 on the year with the much anticipated conference schedule beginning on Saturday at Barton County.
Saturday, January 4th the Beavers traveled to Tonkawa, Oklahoma and came back victorious. After a month off we were pleased with the way the kids played. The first nine minutes were nothing to be proud of, but we continued to improve as the game went on. The Beavers took a 50-40 lead into the half and increased the lead as the game went on. The Beavers scored 95 points and only played the seven players that came back from Christmas break on time. The final was 95-70.
