Basketball - Boys Junior Varsity
vs. The Hotchkiss School
|Date:||February 7, 2014|
|Score:||Berkshire 20 - Hotchkiss 46|
Though the game was never really in contention, it was nevertheless more competitive than the score indicated. Hotchkiss came out hot, connecting on two threes in their couple of possessions and putting us in an early hole. From there, however, our solid defensive effort kept the score close -- even while we struggled mightily to score the ball. At half, we trailed 19-9 -- and that was after a last second bucket by the Bearcats.
In the second half, our guests ramped up the defensive intensity and turned us over a lot -- yielding easy buckets for themselves and the score got away from us a bit. They were a good team, played hard, and deserved to win. I was proud of our team for playing hard to the buzzer -- readying themselves for the contest against Canterbury the next day.
