The 7th grade Gold B team blew Buffalo out of the water last night 33-9. They played exceptional defense and made some nice plays. Nate D. had some good drives to the basket and strong rebounds. He lead the way with 12 points. Nathan S. followed with a beautiful 3 pointer in the second half and scored 7 points the whole game. Cole T. scored 4 points. Charles S. and Spencer H. each scored 3 points. Rounding out the scoring were Benny P. and Daniel P. with 2 points each. The A team had to come from behind to beat Buffalo last night.  Trailing by 8 with just over 10 minutes to go, the team went on a 16-6 run to finish the game with increased defensive pressure and limiting the Bison to one shot on the defensive end of the floor.  With the score tied at 36 under 1 minute remaining, the Knights forced a bad in bounds pass which Matt M. corralled and scored the game winning basket to secure a 38-36 win.  Logan J. led the way with 12 pts.  Matt M. had 8 pts, including the game winner.  Owen H. and Mason W. each had 6 pts, and Colton D., Zach H. and Brody O. each had 2 pts in the victory.  The Blue B team led almost throughout to claim a 38-29 win.  Great attacks of the baskets and making the extra pass to find the open man led the team to the victory.  Cole T. had 12 pts and numerous assists to lead the team.  Ethan R. cleaned the glass and worked hard inside to generate 8 pts for the team.  Roman G. and Kurtis L. each had 4 pts, and Isaac Y., Sam H., Colin M., Leo K., and Ashtyn G. all had 2 pts each. 

Have a great day.
