Haltern- U16 73: 100 (21:23, 11:30, 26:27, 15:20)
In the last road game on the season the guys from U16 played maybe their best game of the season. Playing against a much bigger Haltern team the guys fought to the very end and got a well deserved victory on Sunday. It was a total team effort and every player that stepped on the court gave 100% to help the team get an important win.
Haltern started the game with two big guys and our game plan was to pressure their guards full court and to double team their bigs in the post. In the 1st quarter we did a good job with applying pressure on the guards but the double team was late. Offensively we did a good job playing fast. We was able to get good open lay ups but we missed them. 2nd quarter our defense picked up, we did a good job doubling in the post and forced Haltern bigs to take bad shots. The guys did a good job on the box out and we was able to get out and run fast break. The guys did a good job fighting and scrapping for loose ball and played the best quarter of the season scoring 30 points in the 2nd quarter and that opened the game for us.
After halftime we relax a bit and let Haltern get back in to the game. We built a big enough lead that even with us relaxing a bitthe guys put themselves in a good position to win the game in the end. Very proud of the way the guys fought and stayed together. Last game of the season is next Sunday. Look forward to a good week of practice and finishing out the season strong.
