Game Recap

The Musketeers hosted the North Harrison Cougars last night in what was a very competitive game. Eastern got off to a cold shooting start, only putting up six points in the first quarter, but the boys were able to get going in the second quarter. Sawyer Starrett saw his first action of the season after tearing an ACL several months ago. He brought a much-needed spark off the bench when he hit a big three-pointer midway through the second quarter. Connor Marshall and Ridge Hall also had big baskets in the first half, with each scoring six. After the big second quarter rally, Eastern only trailed by two heading into halftime.
The second half was fiercely contested through the third quarter. Leif Edlin made some big plays on both ends of the floor which helped the Musketeers tie the game heading into the fourth quarter. Costly turnovers and easy baskets for the Cougars would ultimately put North Harrison on top by a final score of 52-42.
Eastern will be back in action again tonight when they travel to play the Paoli Rams.
