Boys JV basketball avoids scare against Greenville 53-47

After almost two weeks since its last game, the boys JV basketball team found a way to come back and defeat the Greenville Yellow Jackets 53-47 after a slow start last Tuesday. Sophomores Chris Battiste and Peyton Bush continued to provide their usual large share of offense, which was crucial late in the game. Chris ended as the leading scorer with 13 points, and Peyton was shortly behind with 11. The Rangers sweep the season series with the Yellow Jackets once again 2-0.

FHC got off to a very slow start, getting down 12-4 at one point in the first quarter. The Yellow Jackets were able to drive to the middle of the Ranger defense with ease, and FHC couldn’t figure out a way to get multiple stops in a row. Just like the last game between these two teams, the Greenville big man was able to score at will and get many offensive rebounds. FHC went into the locker room down 6 points and knew something needed to change.

After a couple of technical fouls on FHC, the momentum slowly started to change for the Rangers. Baskets started to fall, and the new game plan at halftime to stop the Jackets’ big man paid off, as FHC started to cut into the Greenville lead. Chris, Peyton, and fellow sophomore Jonah Spates got a lot of baskets inside to eventually extend the lead late in the fourth quarter. Sophomore Dallas Hopson knocked down some big free throws to put the Yellow Jackets away 53-47.

This win puts the Rangers at 4-2 in the OK White conference and 7-6 overall. FHC had its road game against Cedar Springs scheduled for Thursday postponed, and the Rangers will go on the road to Lowell Tuesday night for their next game.
