Cameron K. (Manager)
Churchill wins 61-51.
LREI lost a tough game to Churchill after a well fought second half.  The Knights started the game off slow on offense, only scoring 4 points in the first quarter and getting down by 11.  The Knights started to bring some intensity in the start of the second quarter but it wore off and they were down still trailing by a large margin, 35 to 19 at half time. The Knights played much better in the second half, cutting the lead to 10 and were hungry for a comeback win.  The Knights went on a run and their defense was great leading to many second chance opportunities.  Players such as Bruce, Keith, Nissim, Jacob H and Markese were causing the Churchill offense into corners or a trap, the Knights got the ball in transition and were able to score easily cutting the lead to one point.  After getting the ball back on defense the Knights called a timeout with 3:36 left on the clock. During this timeout Churchill put in some of their good shooters.   After the timeout the Knights couldn’t capitalize, which led to two points on the other end of the floor for Churchill.  Churchill ended up going on a run themselves that the Knights couldn’t keep up. The final score was 61-51, Churchill. The Knights outscored Churchill in the second half 32-26 but it was their slow start that inevitably lost the game for them.
