The South Tama County Middle School eighth grade boys basketball team traveled to State Center to take on the Trojans of West Marshall Jan. 17.
This was their second meeting of the year as STC hosted the West Marshall Trojans to open the season on November 27. The Trojans of STC won that game 36-20.
This game saw the STC Trojans come out and play great defense. West Marshall could not get their offense going as STC was in the passing lanes and not letting the WM Trojans get any easy baskets. STC passed the ball well and the scoring reflected that.
STC led at half 29-15. This was a good game for everyone getting involved on both offense and defense. The boys played with great energy and hustle. The STC Trojans won this one going away 55-31.
By far this was our best defensive game and offensively we passed the ball the best we have all year. I am proud of how hard the boys worked at the defensive end.
