The St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Eagles played the Holy Trinity Titans in the first round of the JV Comp Championship Tournament.
The boys came out really tight. They were 1 for 12 in the first quarter; an 8.3% shooting percentage. Joe was 0 for 3, Jack was 0 for 4, Jake was 0 for 1, Andy was 1 for 3 and Jacob was 0 for 1 (a missed three pointer). The Eagles defense kept the game close. The Titans led the Eagles by the score of 3 to 2 at the end of the first quarter.
With a number of substitutions, the Eagles started to push the ball in the second quarter. The Eagles outscored the Titans 10 to 3 in the second quarter and led by the score of 12 to 6 at halftime.
Over the last three quarters of the game, the Eagles shooting percentage increased markedly. They shot 11 for 27 (40.7%). After starting 0 for 4, Jack went 3 for 5 over the rest of the game.
The final score was SEAS 29, Holy Trinity 18. The score box is here and the season game log is here.
Playing 15 minutes of the 24 minute game, Jack had 6 points on 3 for 9 from the field. He added 2 rebounds and 1 steal. Jack (the starting shooting guard) and Joe (the starting point guard) led the team in scoring with 6 points each.
The Eagles advance to the second round of the JV Championship Tournament on Saturday morning at Jesuit High School. I am pretty sure that they are going to play OLA. The Eagles beat OLA by a score of 20 to 16 in the St. Ignatius Tournament in December. They are going to need to shoot much better to win on Saturday!
