Despite what the scoreboard showed at the end of the game (50-40), the final actual score according to the official score book was 50-39.
The Sailors started out quickly tonight scoring 7 points within the first minute or so. What a blessing that was to see! At halftime, South Christian led by only 5 points, 21-16. East Grand Rapids played scrappy defense causing the Sailors to turn the ball over. In the end, however, the Sailors were victorious as they connected on many free throws at the end of the game.
Jack Schreur led all scores with 24 and made 10 of his 13 free throws (5 out of 6 in the final minute of the game) to help seal the victory for the Sailors. Caden Oetman added 10 points, while Pieter Veldhuijzen chipped in with 6 points. Five players each scored 2 points to finish the scoring; Colton Schreur, Levi DeRuiter, Cole Montsma, Ashton Fennema, and Sam Zylstra. The Sailors shot a lot better from the free throw line tonight going 20 for 28 = 71%. Rebounding was a lot better tonight as well. Players are beginning to understand that the fundamentals of a game can make all the difference!
