Boys fall to Knights on the road
DUNNING—Some basketball games are so memorable players and coaches can recall nearly every possession.
Not Brady’s boys game at Sandhills/Thedford on Friday. It was one the coach and team hope to put out of their minds.
“We had a combination of things going against us and we played that way,” said coach Rich Britten.
Between illness all week, distractions at school and an unusual defense by the Knights, Brady couldn’t get anything going offensively.
“They threw a triangle and two defense on us and we just couldn’t respond,” Britten said. “We were not prepared for that and we certainly didn’t handle it well at all.”
Brady trailed 18-9 at the end of the first quarter and was down 38-17 at halftime.
“We never seemed to find any rhythm,” Britten said. “Hopefully that’s out of our system now. We could come up with all kinds of excuses but really we just need to regroup and move on. It’s time for sub-districts.”
Senior Kyle Pohlman was Brady’s leading scorer with 10 points. Sawyer Burke, Zach Mann and Dalton Riedel pulled down seven rebounds each.
The boys turn their focus toward the D2-9 sub-district in Cozad this week.
The Eagles were 10-11 and seeded No. 2 heading into the sub-district. They played Medicine Valley (5-14) in the first round Tuesday night. Look for full coverage in next week’s edition.
