The Pleasant View Blue Jays flew into Carver yesterday to take on your 7th grade team. The B game was very exciting with back and forth action on offense for the first half. Carver was impressive in running their plays correctly and leading at the end of the first quarter 8-7 and then at the half 14-13. The game showed that P.V. was a good team but Carver had worked on defensive positioning and rebounding the last few days and it paid off. Nayeem Choudhury, Tory Hall, Noah Neasen, and Brant Jones all had four defensive rebounds each while Hussain Rao, Cole Oliver and Josh Beach combined for eight steals. Noah Nease, Logan Werdeman and Tory Hall pulled in fourteen offensive rebounds allowing Carver to pull ahead by ten at the end of the third and for a win with the final score of 33-28. Noah Nease led the team with thirteen points, Brant Jones had eight and Cole Oliver six.
The A team wanted to come out and control the game from the start but found the Blue Jay team to be very quick and focused as well. The Cougars had several good possessions in the first quarter but allowed Pleasant View to outscore them 14-6 in the first quarter. With some great team defense Carver clawed their way back into the game and the score at halftime showed a five point deficit at 18-13. Isaiah Holyfield worked hard on both ends of the court pulling in eight total rebounds while Kendrick Price grabbed five and Ben Sandy four. Hunter Steinmetz, Jake Thompson, and Jake Brown powered the offense to keep within five at the end of the third with eleven, nine and six points respectively. The Cougars pulled within three, unfortanately the Blue Jays were able to outpace the Cougars and got away with a 43-37 victory.
