5th Grade Traveling Team Falls to Greensburg
January 30, 2008 - Knightstown’s fifth grade traveling basketball team continues to learn while taking some pretty hard hits on the chin. The young Panthers fell behind by a wide margin in the first half, and then played pretty well the rest of the way while suffering a 44-20 loss against Greensburg.
Zach Manley was the only Panther to hit for double figures, finishing with 10 points. Manley also had four rebounds and one steal.
Ben Haase had four points, one board and a steal, while Nolan Hagy scored two points and had a team-high five rebounds. Jake Kwisz also had two points and collected five steals to lead the team.
Broderick Angel scored two points, while Samuel Moore had three rebounds. Curtis White had one rebound and a steal for the Panthers.
“The first half was a little rough for us and we fell behind by quite a bit,” Coach Joe Kwisz said. “For some reason we came out in a fog and it was our ultimate demise. The second half was a completely different story.
“The team came out fired up and played aggressive defense...scrapping for every loose ball and shutting down the Greensburg offense that hit us hard in the first half. Overall, if you take out the first half, we played a pretty good ball game against a very talented squad. Every player on the team gave a great effort and we're looking forward to next week.”
The young Panthers will play a double-header at The Spartan Bowl in Connersville. Knightstown has back-to-back games scheduled to begin at 2 and 3 p.m.
