Very exciting games from both 7th and 8th grade teams.
The 7th grade team was outmatched in size but played very hard. Their physicality and toughness kept them in the game the first half, only down by 4 points at halftime 19-15. The Bulldogs struggled to shoot the ball in the second half, leading to Lehman pulling ahead late in the game and eventually winning 38-30.
The 8th grade team struggled early, digging themselves into a big hole going into halftime down by 14. They responded to the challenge at halftime, not giving up and handling adversity. They were down by 3 with just a few seconds left and Carter Berner hit a huge, contested, 3 in the corner to tie the game up and force OT. In OT, the Bulldogs were back in the same position as the 4th quarter, down by 3 with a few seconds left. Colin Fogle hit a no look, hook shot, 3 pointer to send the game into a 2nd OT. The shot was unbelievable. Going into the 2OT, Lehman hit huge free throws pulling their lead ahead, too much for another miracle. The Bulldogs lost 49-42.
