JV Boys Basketball Green

After a fast start, the JV Boys went cold in the second half and fell to Canterbury 38-25 in the Eagle's Nest Thursday night. Duncan and Jackson scored early for Summit as the Eagles bolted to a quick 9 point lead. Summit maintained a 3 point advantage at the half but struggled to score in the second half against Canterbury's half court trap. The Eagles were also plagued by foul trouble as Duncan, Hudson and Sven all fouled out. While the result is disappointing the effort was not as the Eagles battled until the end. Duncan led the Eagles with 12 points, followed by Jackson with 7, Landon with 3, Sven with 2 and Jake with 1. Summit hosts FCDS Tuesday, the first of three home games for the Eagles next week.
JV Boys turned in a strong second half performance against Wesleyan Tuesday night but came up short, falling 53-29 to a well rounded Trojan squad. Despite the result, the Eagles continue to improve in all areas of the game. Duncan scored a season high 17 points, including 15 in the second half, and knocked down four 3 pointers to lead the Eagles. Ryan also drained a three on a rainbow that may or may not have glanced off the rafter. Will made 3 of 4 from the line and finished with five points and Jack added a bucket on a nice baseline drive. Sven blocked three shots and closed out the scoring with 2 points. The Eagles hit the court again Thursday with a home game against Canterbury.
