ZMS 8th Grade falls to Lincoln in Overtime
Last night, the game was up- tempo; and back and forth against Lincoln Middle. At the end of the first quarter, your Eagles trailed, 7- 10. In the second quarter, your Eagles rallied together a strong quarter by getting to the charity stripe and forcing TOs. At the end of the half, ZMS gained the lead, 22- 19. Nash Wagner leading all scorers with 10pts. In the third quarter, Lincoln answered back holding your Eagles to just five points in the quarter. In the fourth, ZMS continued to fight, and out scored Lincoln 13- 11; but the game went to OVERTIME! All knotted up at 40. In the OT, your Eagles could not get over the hump——- with an opportunity to send the game to double overtime. We missed the 3- pointer, and ZMS falls to Lincoln, 42- 45. Regardless of the outcome, as a coach, I was extremely proud of our guys’ attitude to continue to fight.
