In a game ending with a nine-point loss, the JV boys lost to Belton with an ending score of 53-62. They led in the first half of the game with sophomore Riley Reagan making four free throws and and three two-pointers leading the team.

“It was an intense game, but at the end we didn’t go all out and finish strong,” sophomore Alex Djukic said. “We played offensives well, we found the open man and either got fouled or made the shot. Defensively we played outstanding, closing out on shots and forcing the turnover.”

The team scored 16 points in the first quarter and 19 in the second putting them at 35 points by halftime, 11 above Belton. Senior B’jon Allen was right behind Reagan scoring nine points with two three pointers, one free-throw and two two pointers.

“[The team] played great on both ends,” sophomore Ruben Luna said. “Just got to fix the little mistakes, play solid defense and finish the game strong.

During the second half of the game Jones scored seven points making all four of his free throws and a three pointer. The team scored four points in the third and 14 in the in the fourth. Belton scored 15 in the third which gave them the upperhand in the game.

The boy’s will have a tournament on the 10-12 called the “Lion Classic.” Following that, they will have their first district game against Georgetown at home.
