Game Recap

The Musketeers lost a close one tonight as they took on the Warriors of Scottsburg. The game was a hard fought battle from the start. Each team exchanged blows throughout the first half. Trevor Lewellen came out firing for Eastern, scoring 10 in the first quarter, including two from behind the arc. Connor Marshall and Leif Edlin also contributed big in the first. Scottsburg took a three-point lead into the half, 34-31. The Musketeers came out with a huge third quarter, scoring 20 in the period. Everyone contributed on both ends of the floor, and because of that, Eastern had a 51-45 lead going into the 4th. Costly turnovers and missed defensive assignments would plague the Musketeers in the final period, and while they had two shots to win or tie at the end of the game, neither would go in, giving Scottsburg the win by a final score of 61-59.
