The Jordan-Small Middle School B basketball team travelled to Lake Region Middle School to take on the Lakers on Thursday, January 9th.
Raymond wasted no time, as they put points on the scoreboard shortly into the first half. Lake Region took the lead, but JSMS wasn’t far behind. Raymond took several shots on basket, passed the ball well and got rebounds and a turnover. Noah Campbell, #51, put the ball up twice for two flawless layups.
Half: 30-8, Lake Region
JSMS worked hard to put points on the scoreboard. They continued to move the ball well and got a few rebounds. Ethan Fletcher, #33, sunk a couple foul shots. Lucas Wood, #24, grabbed a nice turnover; Logan Inman, #25, put the ball up for two more points. Harrison Behnke, #31, did the same as he added more points to the scoreboard. Although Raymond turned up the offense in the second half, Lake Region got this ‘W.’
“We did a really good job with our passing, finding each other and moving without the ball,” observed coach Ryan Roderick. “What hurt us was our defense. We definitely can bring more intensity to our next game.”
