Ashley 56, Jack Britt 65
The Jack Britt Buccaneers got off to a hot start connecting on 5 of their first 7 shots to build a quick 13-5 lead that grew to as much as 14 in the second quarter. The Eagles found their rhythm offensively before ½ time and closed the gap to 6 at the break. A physical 3rd quarter saw the Bucs stretch their lead to 15 which saw the Eagles respond with a 14-3 run to close the gap to within striking range. The Eagles had to start fouling to stop the clock which stretched the lead back out to 9 to end the game.
Jack Britt has great size and athleticism combined with great basketball skill and an outstanding coach. The trip was a great learning experience for the guys as we prepare for the second ½ of the non-conference schedule and ultimately the conference competition.
4 Eagle Seniors lead the way in scoring with Ben Jacobson-12, Reid Clark and Beontae Powell with 10 apiece and Auston Cain with 7.
The Eagles are on the court again when they we host Pender High School on Dec 8th.
