Tuesday night the Springstead Eagles defeated Land O’ Lakes for a BIG district game win. The final score of the game was 65-63.
Phil Merrill along with Sincere Torain and Keaton Skinner were the players of the game. Phil Merrill had a total of 16 points, 2 assists and had 2 3’s. Sincere Torain and Keaton Skinner tied with a total 12 points and 1 rebound each.
The game was very close from beginning to end. There was a few seconds left on the clock and the game was tied 63-63 and was saved by Jeffrey Cotnoir rebounding a missed shot and made the game winning lay up that gave the boys another great victory.
After the game Phil Merrill was asked how well he played and if he was happy with the outcome of the game, he responded with, “I think I played pretty good and my team is great and they also did a good job of getting the ball to me….I was very happy we won” Let’s see if the boys can take another victory Friday night against Sunlake for another district win.
