In the first regular season game of the season, St. Elizabeth Ann Seton played St. James. All of the league games are being played at St. Charles Borromeo.
Jack started at the shooting guard. The Eagles struggled to make their shots in the first quarter. They went 0 for 9 from the floor. The only points came from a free throw by Jake. At the end of the first quarter, SEAs trailed St. James by the score of 4 to 1.
Continuing to put a lot of defense pressure on St. James, the boys started to click a bit on offense in the second quarter. Andy got a couple of offenive rebounds and put backs for 4 points, while Jack added 4 more points including a steal and a full court drive for a lay-up. Jack was fouled to end the quarter, but missed both of the free throws. At half-time, the score was SEAs-9, St. James-4.
The Eagles outscored St. James 16 to 2 in the second half. St. James got their only two points on free throws once they were in the bonus.
St. Elizabeth Ann Seton beat St. James by the score of 25 to 6. Jack ended the game with 4 points on 2 for 13 from the field and 0 for 2 from the free throw line. He added three rebounds, three steals and two turnovers. Last year, I think that the most shots Jack took in a game was 10.
Jack is very competitive and passionate. He was very unhappy after the game. Jack had three of four shots that bounced or spun out. He was very mad at the number of shots that he missed.
Starting with this game, I am serving as the team scorer. The box score for the game is here.
