TROJAN BASKETBALL REPORT
Coach Erik Helleson reports:
Date: 12/8/12 Place: Manson
Score: Manson 60- Entiat 62
Record – League/Overall: 1-1
Significance of the game: Rematch from earlier in the week
Individual highlights: Alex Vanderholm: 12 pts and 13 rebounds, 4 steals; Salvador Leyva: 27 points and 9 rebounds; Olegario Orozco: 14 points and 6 rebounds
Team Highlights: 12 steals and 24 turnovers
We jumped out to a quick 12-0 lead in the first quarter and maintained that pace in the first half, leading by 9 points. However, Entiat turned up the defensive pressure and our mistakes in the 3rd and first half of 4th quarter led to a turnaround of 19 points as we fell behind by 10 points with 4 minutes remaining.
The silver lining was our guys did not drop their heads as they battled back to tie the game with 12 seconds remaining on a score by Salvador Leyva. However, we fouled them during our full court pressure and Entiat hit their free throws to make the final difference.
This was a disappointing loss, but a learning experience that will help us during league season.
Wednesday, Dec. 12th against Pateros at the Town Toyota Center in Wenatchee.
