DOERKSEN, CARTER TOP SCORERS!

By William

INMAN – While not one of their best games according to the coach, the Inman boys’ basketball team still managed to pull away in the second half at home on Tuesday and score a decisive 14-point, 42-28 victory over Remington.

Leading by just two, 10-8, at the end of the first quarter, the Teutons were able to put the cushion at five, 18-13, heading into the halftime break before adding four more points to their lead, 28-19, by the end of the third quarter. In the fourth quarter, Inman continued to tack a few more points onto the lead and finished out their 14-point win.

Thanks to three three-pointers, Jace Doerksen led the Teutons with 14 points while Mason Carter chipped in with 10 and Kolby Blank hit for seven.

“It wasn’t one of our finest performances tonight,” noted Teuton Head Coach Brett Froese in his post-game reflections. “We played hard, just forgot how to guard anybody. Thought we were a step slow all night long. Not sure if maybe we were looking ahead to our game with Hutchinson Trinity on Friday night or what, but it wasn’t pretty.”

Coach Froese concluded his reflections by saying, “We went on a small run in the middle of the third quarter which I think pushed us over the top. Coach Regier of Remington does a great job with his kids and it showed in their preparation for us tonight. We are going to have to play better in all phases on Friday or it might not be pretty.”

WHAT’S NEXT FOR THE INMAN TEUTONS? The victory over Remington raises the Teuton record to 11-4 for the season as they now prepare for a tough battle on the road Friday at Hutchinson Trinity Catholic.
