Jr. High boys lose to Woodland

On Monday, the Oran Junior High boys basketball teams lost to the visiting Woodland Cardinals.  The seventh-grade fell 36-12, while the eighth-graders dropped a heartbreaker 43-42 in double overtime.

The younger boys trailed 22-2 at the break and ended up losing by 24.

Coach Joe Shoemaker said, "I thought are seventh-grade improved as the game went on. We have to clean up our fundamentals and start making some shots but I am confident that they will improve as the season continues."

Brendan Campell had five points, including a trey, Andrew Dennis added four, Elijah Shoemaker had two and Cody Albritton added a free throw.

From the line, the team was only 1 of 8 for 13%.  They are now 0-2 on the year.

In the nightcap, the Eagles led 18-12 at halftime but trailed 26-24 heading into the final period. At the end of regulation, it was knotted at 36 all.

Shoemaker said, "The eighth-grade had a heck of a battle with a good Woodland team. Hopefully, we learned that every play counts from the first one to the last one. I am looking forward to how they approach our next game."

After one overtime, it was tied 39-39.  The Cardinals outscored Oran by a point in the final two-minute extra-frame.

Luke Peterson led the Eagles with 13 including a trey.  Camdyn Triblett also scored in double-digits with 10.

Kolten Payne had seven points, and he too hit a three-pointer.  Robby Menz had six, Parker Diebold four and Nic Massey two.

The Eagles hit only 2 of 6 at the line for 33% and fell to 1-1.

They will be back in action this evening at Bell City.  Tip time is 6:00pm.
