The 5th grade boys team played very well in the first game against Vicksburg.  We were up by two with 2 minutes to go in the 4th quarter. The guys showed great improvement on both ends.  Offensive rebounds are what ended up getting us, which is one area that we definitely need to improve.  Excellent effort by Brendon Blades who came up with 2 steals and made a great play on a loose ball in the 2nd half.  Scoring was led by Adrian White with 13 points.  Branden Willis added 10 points and several offensive rebounds.

Marcus Cannon went down early going for a loose ball, had a bloody nose, but came back into the game and scored 7 points.  We had foul trouble through both games and Brendan Blades stepped up and grabbed 3 offensive rebounds.

11-5 - Comstock 6 - Homer 19

Playing with just 6 players Comstock 5th grade boys played their hearts out. The kids played very good help side defense. Noah Jackson did a great job rebounding and Bryce Meach played tough defense throughout.
