The Grayling Varsity Boys Basketball team earned another LMC victory over East Jordan on Friday, January 5th.
The Red Devils took an early lead but a 13-0 run by the Vikings gave them a 21-8 after the 1st quarter. The Vikings would extend that lead in the 2nd quarter taking a 30-18 lead into halftime. The Vikings would continue to widen that lead enroute to a 65-42 victory.
Justin Nicholas led the team with 18 points and 6 rebounds. Christian Artress had 14 points and 7 steals, Trey Moffit had 11 points and 4 assists, and Brent Weismiller had 8 points.
“Our guys gave a good effort coming out of Christmas break. I thought our effort at both ends of the court got better as the game went on,” Coach Rich Moffit said. “I was pleased with our scrappiness at the defensive end of the court with our defensive pressure. We were able to cause turnovers and convert them into easy baskets.”
The Boys Basketball team improves to 4-3 overall and 2-1 in the LMC. They travel to Ogemaw Heights on Tuesday, January 9th.
