Defense was the name of the game in the first game of the triple header versus Ritchie County High School Tuesday evening. The middle school boys came out and played smothering defense that was tough to do much against in just their second contest of the season.
“The hustle, the tipped passes, people chasing people down from behind, that never give up attitude is what helped us prevail tonight. “ Coach Fleming said after the great effort from his undersized group.
After two games you can tell this will be a exciting product for years to come. Every player dressed went in and contributed in the victory. Every guy was hungry to provide their role and did when their number was called.
Leading the way for the Crusaders were Blake Lewis who had 7 buckets for 14 points and Carter McMinn scoring 5 tough buckets to finish with 10 points on the evening.
The Parkersburg Catholic Middle School Boys will be back in action this Friday 12/7 at Wood County Christian School for a 5:30pm start.
