The 8th Boys had their season opener this past Monday against the visiting Cougars of Christoval. Christoval jumped to an early lead and broke at half with a comfortable score of 16-38. The Punchers regrouped and had a good surge in the third and fourth quarters cutting Christoval’s lead to four points with 2:45 remaining in the game. Although the effort was good it was a case of too little too late, as the Cougars finished out the game leading 26-34.
It was a good season start for us. We just took too long to get into the game. Several guys did well in this game. Marcuss Martinez and Cody Wood lead in scoring, Jason Berreles lead in rebounding and Elliot Bibb lead in assists. Next week the Punchers will take on the visiting teams from Irion County, Monday 30th, 7th at 5:
