Summerland boys win third game in a row
January 14, 2021
The Bobcats boys took on the North Central Knights, Jan. 7, in Ewing, and won 46-39.
Mason Hoke scored the bulk of the points, leading the team with 13.
The Bobcats were able to start hot in the first quarter, scoring 15 points and taking a four-point advantage into the second quarter. They kept the good offense going with another strong quarter and went into the half, up 28-21, on the Knights.
In second-half play, the boys seemed to struggle against a resolved North Central team that cut the Bobcat lead down by two points to start the fourth quarter.
The Bobcats were able to adjust and secured a late lead behind a big three from Jaykwon Petite to break a tie with just a few minutes to go in the game.
After making a few free throws in crunch time, Summerland secured its third win in a row.
Coach Jacob Birch said the team played good defense and took care of the ball well.
He later said, "I don't believe we turned the ball over at all in the last few minutes, which helped us close out the game."
