DEFEAT HUTCHINSON 9-8

By William

HUTCHINSON – Contrary to our first story, the McPherson Middle School 8th grade Junior Lady Pups basketball ‘B’ team did play Hutchinson on Thursday and came home with a low-scoring 9-8 victory.

Only four McPherson players scored with Alivia Villalobs leading the team with four points.

“The girls started off really slow,” explained ‘B’ team Coach Courtney Heinen. “But they were able to adjust and ended up playing some pretty good basketball overall. Once they got going, we had some good rotations defensively and we were able to move the ball a little better on offense. They did a good job with finding the open post player and attacking the basket, we just need to do a better job finishing.”

Next up for the 8th grade Junior Lady Pups will be on Monday, December 7 when they tangle with Clay Center at home.

MCPHERSON MIDDLE SCHOOL 8TH GRADE JUNIOR LADY PUPS ‘B’ TEAM INDIVIDUAL SCORING:

Alivia Villalobos – 4

Izabel Backhus – 2

Addie Harlin – 2

Josie Fitzmorris – 1
