The Liberty Middle School 8th grade boys finished the regular season undefeated by downing Colwich 46-41.
LMS8 was able to take control of the game, scoring early and often off their press and with Windex buckets. “Traik Peltier, Bryce Stegman and Samson Kohman dominated the glass,” according to LMS head coach Andy Kisner.
“Noah Myers and Hunter Kaufman handled the ball with minimal turnovers while anchoring the front of our press,” Kisner continued. LMS8 had manufactured a 23 point lead early in the 4th quarter, and Kisner emptied the bench.
Colwich took a run at the Greenback reserves, closing to within 46-41, but the bench was able to hang on for the win.
Pratt draws a bye in next week’s season- ending league tournament. Their first game will be on Thursday.
