HA Classic – 8th Grade: Final Round

Good Shepherd rolled through the competition to claim the championship trophy at the 34th annual Holy Angels Classic on Saturday.  Ball movement and a full court pressure defense helped the Rams jump out to a 13-4 first period margin over Badger-Red. Good Shepherd never looked back as they posted a 47-26 victory in the finale.  Brendon Clements led all scorers with 17 points, with Colin Biesterfeld (10) and Brett Hielsberg (8) adding to the effort. Nick Rosenthal and Paul Bailiff led the scoring for Badger.

Tight defense in the second period helped St. Mary’s take a 17-8 lead into the locker room in the third place matchup with Silverbrook-Blue. The Crusaders continued their scoring with multiple trips to the free throw line en route to a 40-25 win and the third place trophy. Nine players scored for St. Mary’s, led by Tyler Koslowski with nine points. Lee Roberts tallied eight points for the Vikings.

In the battle for fourth place, Andrew Steiner hit a pair of three-points and also converted a free throw after a basket in the second period to give Holy Angels a 20-14 halftime lead over Badger-White.  The host Royals had gotten into early foul trouble but managed to avoid putting the Badgers on the line.

In the third period, Holy Angels extended their lead to 28-15 with an 8-1 run, including three pointers by Steiner and Ben Tennies. Kendrick Davis powered Badger to a seven point run of their own to cut the Royal lead to 28-26 with 4:30 on the clock.  Holy Angels increased the tempo and ran off eight points to regain control with 3:10 remaining and a 36-26 lead.
