Game Recap

The Eastern boys basketball team lost a heartbreaker tonight when they hosted the Austin Eagles. The Musketeers came out strong, led by Trevor Lewellen and his five first half three point baskets. Ridge Hall also played a huge role for Eastern, putting together his best game of the season. The Musketeers took a 12 point lead into halftime. Austin came out the second half much more aggressive, especially defensively. Some late fouls and costly turnovers would ultimately help Austin prevail. The boys are back in action Friday when they head on the road to take on the Silver Creek Dragons.
