Marie Phillip boys’ basketball

CHCH 69 MPS 58

Our MPS boys were looking for avenged game with CHCH. But it didn’t work
at all. CHCH ‘s plan did well against us. We were prepared for their press
defense from the beginning to the end. We did success against them at most
of the game but fatigue were effect on us. They kept subbing their 5
players on every 2-4 minutes so they can keep up their press defense on
us. We didn’t have enough boys to be able playing with their confidence.
We were down by 18 points then clawed back into game in second half with 4
points. Turnovers and allowed CHCH to score 12 treys, that was simple
killed us. I do still proud of our boys for their refusing give up on
them. Our boys tried to put a miracle comeback but it didn’t work. Senior
Dylan Christoffels led team with 22 points, 10 rebounds and 4 assists
while Junior, Kacey Monahan added 17 points, 9 rebounds and 2 blocks.

Our next games for the week of 1/22 to 1/26

Monday at ISB

Wednesday at MPS vs. CCA

Friday at Waldorf

Record 7-6, MBIL 2-3
