(January 23rd, 2015) – FAYETTE: Eight different Eagle players registered points in the Fayette Junior Varsity team’s defeat of the visiting Bombers of Edon in Buckeye Border Conference play.
It was due to Fayette’s selfless style of play and quick decision making that they were able to have so many contributors to their offense. Playing with poise and precision well beyond their years, the young Eagle boys zipped the ball around the court, swinging it between their guards while occasionally driving into the paint to look for an opening.
The Bomber defense was forced to work on every Fayette possession, but they did a solid job of closing up any gaps the fast moving offense could create. Still, the persistent and potent attack was too effective for Edon to keep the Eagles off the scoreboard, and the Bomber boys ended up dropping the road game to Fayette 24-13.
Eagle Garett Reinking spred his 8 points out through the contest’s first three quarters. Teammate Casen Burkholder produced 5 points, most of which came in the first half. Five players, including sophomores Austin Lopez, Tharyn Colegrove, Christopher Jaso, and Cole Stuckey, as well as freshman Grant Reinking, were responible for 2 points apiece. Mason Maginn, another sophomore, made a free throw to give the Eagles an eighth scorer in the game.
For the Bombers, freshman Logan Bloir led the way with 5 points. Blake Thiel. A sophomore for Edon, worked the inside in the game’s final quarter for 4 points. Travis Siebenaler and Jordan Julian each contributed 2 points in the loss as well.
