    The Nemaha Central boys’ basketball team traveled to Sabetha to face off against the Bluejays on Thursday, February 7. In the first quarter of the eighth-grade boys A-team game, both teams got off to a slow start only scoring 5 points each. The Thunder started to gain some momentum and scored 10 points in the second quarter, but allowed the Bluejays to score 13 points. The halftime score was 18-15 in the Bluejays favor.

    The Thunder went into the locker room thinking that they needed to execute their offense better so that they could get the lead. The Thunder came out strong in the third quarter outscoring the Bluejays 9 to 6. This made the score tied up at 24 at the end of the third quarter. In the fourth quarter, the Thunder team was able to put 16 more points on the board, but it wasn’t enough because they let the Bluejays score 20 points. This made the final score 44-40 making it the third loss for the A-team so far this year.

    Isaac Lueger said, "We didn't keep our emotions in check and we lost because of it."

    The eighth-grade B-team had a great start scoring 6 points while holding the Bluejays scoreless in the first quarter. In the second quarter, the Thunder were able to put 8 more points on the board but allowed the Bluejays to score 15 points on them.  This made the halftime score 15-14 with the Bluejays winning by 1 point.

    The Thunder boys went into the locker room thinking that they needed to get some stops on defense to keep the Bluejays from scoring on every possession. The Thunder had a slow start getting back into the game only scoring 4 in the third quarter. They only allowed the Bluejays to score 7 points. In the fourth quarter, the Thunder were able to score 8 points but allowed the Bluejays to score 13. This made the final score 35-26 for another NC loss.

    The seventh grade A-team were ready to play some basketball. They had a slow start in the first quarter only scoring 2, while allowing the Bluejays to put 9 points on the board. In the second quarter, the Thunder were only allowed to score 2 more points against the Bluejays defense. The Bluejays were able to score 14 points making the halftime score 4-23 with the Bluejays ahead.

    The Thunder went into the locker room thinking that they needed to step it up if they wanted to have a chance to get back in this game. The Thunder came out strong in the third quarter scoring 11 points while holding the Bluejays to only 4 points. In the fourth quarter, the Thunder were only able to score 7 points but allowed the Bluejays to score 7 more points also. This made the final score 34-22 making it the first loss for the seventh grade A-team this season.

    "We didn't execute as well as we could," said Dalton Childress.

    The seventh-grade B-team were not able to put the ball in the basket only scoring 2 points in the first quarter but allowed the Bluejays to score 4 points. In the second quarter, the Thunder were only able to score 2 more points, while allowing the Bluejays to put 7 more points on the board. This made the halftime score 11-4 in the Bluejays favor.

    The Thunder went into the locker room thinking that they needed to execute their offense better and get the ball to the post players. The Thunder were only allowed to score 2 more points again in the third quarter while holding the Bluejays to only 5 more points. In the fourth quarter, the Thunder team was able to score 7 points. The Bluejays were only able to score 1 point, but that made the final score 17-13 adding the fourth loss on the night for the NC boys. Overall, the boys could have played a lot better, but they have future games to focus on.
