On Monday, December 17, the Patriots played their final games of the calendar year.
The JV Patriots played the varsity team from Great Hope. It was a challenging game, but the JV guys played hard the whole time. They came out after halftime and had a great 3rd quarter. Gabe Ortiz led the scoring with 10 points, and Austin Gray followed closely behind with 9 points. Final score: Patriots 27-Great Hope 54.
The Lady Patriots played the Sweethaven Lions. The game was close the entire evening with numerous lead changes. With sickness slowing down many of the starters, the girls coming off the bench did a great job filling the spots on the floor. Kaylyn Fredericks led the evening with 9 points and 11 rebounds. Amber McGary grabbed 10 rebounds, and Semiyah Ferebee was able to put up 7 points and pull down 7 rebounds. The girls fought through rough play and rough calls, but they ended the game a little short of their goal. Final score: Lady Patriots 23 – Sweethaven 28.
Great job, Patriots. Thank you again to all our fans.
May you all have a Merry Christmas remembering the birth of our wonderful Lord.
