Game Recap

The Eastern boys extended their win streak to win games last night when they traveled to Mitchell to take on the Bluejackets. Eastern jumped out to an early lead, led by Leif Edlin’s 7 first quarter points. Jacob Stewart came up big again for the Musketeers in the second quarter. He finished the game with 12 boards, 8 of which were offensive, and 6 points. Eastern was able to build a comfortable halftime lead of 28-14. Mitchell picked up their play in the third, and actually took a two-point lead midway through the fourth quarter. Eastern kept their heads late, though, and went 10 for 13 from the foul line in the fourth to seal the win by a final score of 59-52.
The boys will be back in action Friday when they travel to Brownstown to take on the Braves in a MSC matchup.
