    On Monday, December 12, the Nemaha Central Middle School girls basketball team played the Axtell Eagles. The A-team was the first team to take the court. The Thunder won the tip off and set up their play. The Thunder pressed the Eagles and got many steals. After the Thunder got up by about 10, they took off the press. The first half ended, with NCMS up, 12-3. The second half, was about the same. The Thunder got quite a few steals that turned into lay-ups. The Thunder won the game, 26-8, with Hannah Macke scoring 14 of the Thunder's points.

    "When the game first started we were a little slow, but once we got our nerves out, we started playing well," said Hannah Macke.

    The Thunder B-team started shortly after the A-team girls finished. NCMS grabbed the ball out of the air after the tip off. The Eagles were playing great defense and it made it hard for the Thunder to score. NCMS kept the score close by getting steals. The first half ended, 2-4, with the Thunder behind. In the second half, the Eagles started breaking the Thunder's defense. The Thunder tried to catch back up, but the Eagles had too much of a lead. The game ended, 6-22, giving the Eagles the win.

    "Even though the game didn't go our way, we hung in their and tried our best," said Taryn Bergman.
