The 8th grade boys’ basketball team travelled to Isanti Monday night. The A team lost in the match-up struggling to make clean passes and create on office. The Knights fought back early in the second half to decrease the lead, but were unable to close the gap. Alex M. and Brooks O. led the team with some big rebounds in the second half. Hayden F. led the team in assists in his first game back after injury. The Blue team defeated Isanti in a 29-26 win. They led the game by 10 at halftime, but let Isanti back in the game near the end. The Knights were able to seal the win with a couple of pressure free-throws by Wes K.. Dylan B. led the team with 8 rebounds, while Caleb B. led with 4 blocked shots.

The 7th grade boys’basketball team traveled to Isanti last night to take on the Bluejackets and came home with two wins.  The A team scrapped their way to a 44-31 win on an evening where their shots were not falling from the outside.  Their attacks of the basket, and enough transition baskets were the difference in the end.  Colton D. led the way with 17 pts, many of which were putbacks off of offensive rebounds.  Logan J. was next with 8 pts.  Matthew M. and Aidan H. each had 6 pts.  Charlie W. had 4 pts and Zach H. and Brody O. had 2 pts each.  In the B game, the Knights used fast break baskets and defensive pressure to turn steals into baskets on the other end and cruised to a 45-19 win.  Cole T. led the way with 15 pts and numerous steals.  Ethan R. cleaned up on the glass and finished with 12 pts.  Kurtis L. had 5 pts.  Sam H. and Colin M. each had 4 pts and Issac Y., Roman G., Ashtyn G., and James Z. each had 2 pts.  All members of the team that played tonight made the scoring column which showed another complete team effort in the victory.
