Tabor drops pair to Sterling

The Tabor Bluejays were in action Thursday nite in Hillsboro, taking on the visiting Sterling Warriors. Tabor dropped a pair of three point decisions.

The Lady Jays led 2-0 seventeen seconds into the contest. Unknowingly to them, that would be their only lead of the night. Trailing by as many as 15 points in the first half, Tabor was unable to generate any offense, scoring only 18 in the first stanza to trail 18-30 at halftime. Coming out in the second half, the Lady Jays looked like a different team and promptly cut the lead to 29-30 with 15:57 left in the game, but that was as close as they would come. Sterling held on for the 64-61 victory. Casey Stucky led the team in scoring with 13 before fouling out with just over a minute remaining. With the loss, the Lady Jays fall to 3-4 overall, and 0-1 in the KCAC.

The Tabor men were involved in a bruising battle that held little resemblance to a basketball game. The rough style that was allowed took Tabor out of their comfort zone as they were unable to run their offense effectively on this evening. Sterling survived a late three point barrage by the Bluejays, to come away with the 75-72 victory. Scott Brubacher led the Bluejays in scoring with 16, followed closely by M. Ratzlaff and Gattis with 13 and 12 respectively. The loss drops the Bluejays record to 3-5 overall and 0-1 in league play.
