Basketball season has begun for Rose Hill Elementary School. There's four teams, a big boys team, a big girls team, a little boys team, and a little girls team. So there' were four games running back to back today. We were playing against Jonesville, a formidable opponent, on their court.
I only saw one of the games (the one my son was playing in), but what an exciting game it was. Jonesville had scored first, but then we had caught up by the end of the first quarter - with the score tied at 4-4. We gained the lead early in the second quarter, as the score reached 6-5. We had risen to a score of 12-5 with one minute left in the 2nd quarter. By the end of the first half, we were still ahead at 12-8. The score was up to 18-14 by the end of the 3rd quarter. With only 2 minutes left in the game, we were up to 26-20, at which point our starting line-up returned to the court. Once we'd gained the lead in the 2nd quarter, we managed to maintain the lead for the rest of the game. The final score was 28-22. Rose Hill beat Jonesville! what a hoot!
