        On a cold evening, the Nemaha Central boys basketball team faced off against Falls City on Monday, December 5.  The A-team made an exciting comeback in their game to add a win to their record. In the first quarter, the Thunder had a slow start being outscored by the Tigers 2 to 8.  The NC boys started to gain a little in the second quarter, but were still down 8 to 12 at halftime.

    The third quarter was not an offensive quarter for either team, as the Thunder made one basket and the Tigers only had one free throw scored. The NC boys picked up the the pace in the fourth quarter by hitting a couple of three point shots by Marcus Beck and Gage Palic. The rest of their eleven points came off of free throws that enabled them to win the game 21 to 19.

    "After being behind the entire game, we were able to run some plays and make our free throws in the last couple minutes to pull out the win," said Gage Palic.

    In the B-team game, the NC boys struggled to score and lost 10 to 38. The game started slow for the NC boys being outscored 4 to 10. By halftime the Thunder was trailing in the game 7 to 21. In the second half, the game was pretty much the same as the first half with NC being outscored and losing the game 10 to 38. However one positive that came out of the game was the basket by Trenton Heiman.  The B-team boys may have lost the game, but they grew as a team.

    "Trenton's basket was a great moment for our team as we moved the ball around and got him a good shot. His team and the crowd showered him with applause." said coach Todd Krause.
