The 7th grade basketball team played St. John’s on Wednesday with the A team coming up with a victory
The A team won by a score of 44-30. The Comets played solid defense throughout the game and caused a number of St. John’s turnovers. Isaiah Bailey led Hayes with 11 points followed by Owen Smith with 8. All ten Comets scored in the game.
The B team lost a heartbreaker once again, this time 29-28. Justin Odlum had 7 points while Carson Brunk and Blake Filipiak each had 6 points for Hayes.
”Our zone trap was really effective today. The guys really hustled and cut off passing lanes. It allowed us to get some easy baskets,” said coach Brett McCartney. “We still need to be more under control at times, but I like that we are trying to be more aggressive and take the play to our opponent.”
The Comets play at home vs Eaton Rapids on Monday, December 5th with the B game starting at 4:30 pm and A game to follow.
