The 8th grade Roughnecks started their season off with a win against the Harmony Eagles Thursday night. After a slow start in the first quarter, White Oak took a 21-14 lead into half. Coming out in the 2nd half, White Oak went on an 18-0 run and put the game out of reach at the beginning of the 4th quarter. The Roughnecks only gave up 2 points in the 2nd half and move to 1-0 on the season.
“We struggled from the field early, missing easy shots. As we got more into the game and got our feet wet things began to pick up for us. It’s a long season and we still have alot that we need to improve on, but overall, the boys played well tonight.”
The Roughnecks will be playing the Lions Club Tournament this weekend here at White. 1st game tips off at 9:00am.
White Oak 9 . 12 . 18 . 10…..49
Harmony . 11 . 3 . 0 . 2…….16
