    It was a snowy winter's night as the Nemaha Central boys basketball team took on their cross-town rivals the Sts. Peter & Paul School Trojans on Monday, January 22.  It was a very highly anticipated match-up because coming into the game NC was undefeated, while SPPS had only one loss.

    The Thunder B-team boys played a competitive first quarter scoring 9 to the Trojans 11. The second quarter was a defensive battle with the Trojans scoring 6 and the Thunder team scoring 5.  This made the half-time score 17 to 14 with the Thunder team leading. The Thunder boys played another defensive battle with SPPS in the third quarter allowing 6 points for SPPS and only 4 points for NC. The Trojans outscored the Thunder by three points in the fourth quarter.  The final score was 23 to 31 with SPPS winning. All in all, the NC Thunder team played well, but just came up short.

    Issac Lueger said, “Our effort and attitude could have improved.  We could have won the game if we improved these things.”

    For the Thunder A-team boys game, Marc Beck won the tip-off and the Thunder boys were ready to roll. In the first quarter, NC outscored SPPS 10 to 5. The second quarter was just about the same with NC scoring 9 and SPPS scoring 5 once again.  The score going into halftime was 19 to 10 in Nemaha Central’s favor. After half-time, the Thunder came out with a defensive mindset only allowing SPPS to put one point on the board. At the conclusion of the 3rd quarter, NC had 28 points and SPPS had 11. For the fourth quarter, SPPS had their best offensive performance scoring 11 points to the Thunder’s 9.  However, the Thunder had built up enough of a lead to sustain a victory. The final score of the game was 37 to 22.  NC remained undefeated for the season with a record of 10-0.  With this win, NC acquired the top seed in the upcoming Oregon Trail League Tournament.

         Messiayah Nolte said, “Our defense was great because we held one of the top teams in the league to only 23 points."
