The Eagles played Tigers in the first round of the St. Charles Tournament in January. One of the players on the other team, Cooper, has played baseball with Jack over the last year and a half on the Gunners, LYB All-Stars and Outlaws. Additionally, Cooper's dad, Rod, is one of the assistant coaches for St. Patrick's.
Jack came out firing. He was 4 for 5 in the first quarter. I think that he was partly motivated by Cooper being on the other team. With Joe, Aidan and Andy all going 2 for 3 in the first quarter, the Eagles shot 63% and ran out to a 20 to 4 first quarter lead.
I felt bad for Cooper. He was trying to carry the Tigers, but the Eagles size and depth (six different Eagles players scored 4 or more points) were just too much for his team. Jack actually blocked two of Cooper's shots in the first quarter.
The final score was SEAS 49, St. Patrick's 16. The score box is here and the season game log is here.
Jack had 10 points on 5 for 10 from the field. He added 2 rebounds, 2 steals and 2 blocks. Coming off the bench, Andy had a monster game at center. He had 12 points on 6 for 9 from the field with 10 rebounds.
