Town Hall Sports Coordinator Richard Mozeleski gave these reports on Kids Basketball:
In 6- to 8-year-old action this week, the Red Kettle Dragons have held on to their division lead at 4-1 with a solid, opening win Monday against the American Legion Sea Dragons, but late in the week they were upset by the Killer Crocs.
The Crocs were led by Brody Posey’s 21 points, though he sat out the last half of the final quarter. The Dragons rallied, but the rebounding of the Crocs and skillful time management of a couple of the players kept control of the last 20 seconds for the Crocs to prevail.
In the 9- to 11-year-old group, Jo’An’s Heat held on to their 4-0 lead, but the Rotary Storm are starting to make their move, with an overtime win over Leigh’s Purple Penguins. A basket by Kilo Harrington in the two-minute period was enough to secure victory for the Storm.
This week is packed with eight games at the mid-season mark. Games are at 5 and 6 o’clock Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, with excitement guaranteed or your money back.
