The second half St. Michael’s upped the pressure and make a run to force overtime (29-29). OT was about who wanted it more, and with a last minute bucket from Molly Kramer we held on to win 33-31.

Varsity Recap vs. Marshall

Yes, we actually had a game on Tuesday, February 5th!  It was a tough challenge for our guys, but we were proud of the effort they continue to give.  With Roman out for the game & Burlison going down early in the 3rd, players had to step up and fill some shoes.    The Eagles were down early in the 1st, 23-6 & then down at half 39-17.   They faced a lot of pressure from a quick Marshall Academy team to whom you have to give credit.   The final score was HCA 24 – Marshall 72.   The Eagles  will bounce back quickly with practice Thursday followed up by another home game Friday.  Let’s keep going hard!

Key Stat(s) for the Game:

·       Mark G. – 9 pts., 4 Rb., 3 Stl

·       Colin B. – 8 pts, 3 stl

·       Ethan S. – 3 pts, 5 Rb

  

 

Middle School Girls Basketball

On Tuesday, February 5th, the MS Girls “A” team played against St. Michael’s Lutheran at The Point.  Our girls won a hard fought nail biter 17 to 16.  Our leading scorer was Chloe L. with 8 points.  And Chloe L. & Kayla B. finished with 9 rebounds each.

Varsity Recap vs. Zion

HCA 31 – ZION 51

Heritage came out with a strong first half of defense against Zion on January 8th, 2019.  While still developing our consistency on offense, Heritage was able to keep it close at the half being down 20-14.  The 3rd quarter Zion’s 3pt. shooting put us in a pretty tough hole.  Zion making 5 three pointers in the 3rd & out scoring us 23-12 gave them a 17 pt. lead after the 3rd quarter.  Heritage continued to battle hard but eventually fell 51-31…..

We will get ready with practice on Thursday & then get ready to face West Michigan Aviation on Friday, January 11th at home.

Key Stats:

One item to mention before stats: At half time & after the game, before walking into the room to talk to the guys, they were already recognizing each other, discussing good things that were happened & what can be worked on.  This is a huge step for our team & will pay dividends in the end!

  • Hayden V.: 10 pt./5 Rb./1 Asst.
  • Ethan S.: 5 pts/5 Rb/2 Asst/1 Blk
  • Levi R.: 10 pts/2 Asst/2 Stl
  • Elijah F. 4 pts/1 Rb.
