The Rams jumped out to an early lead and led the Yellow Jackets 17-11 after the first quarter. Early fouls by Andrew Blum gave him limited playing time in the first half but the young Rams played well and went into half leading 38-25.  Junior Nate Kennedy was the leading scorer at halftime with 12 (three 3's). A fifteen point third quarter by the Yellow Jackets cut the Ram lead to nine after three quarters of play.

Coach Berke's Recap- Tough defense and patience on offense was the key to last night’s victory in Harlan by the 8th grade boys.  In a back and forth battle, the Rams came out on top, 50-41.  Due to a situation beyond our control, there are no official scoring stats available.  All of the boys played hard and the coaching staff is very proud and excited with the victory.

Coach Berke's Recap vs. Sidney- The boys 8th grade basketball team played the second game of their season when they hosted Sidney on Friday night at the Glenwood Middle School.

From the beginning, it was clear that Sidney was outmatched by the Rams, as Glenwood took a quick 13-point lead in the first quarter.  The Cowboys spurred ahead, and because of some lackluster defense by the Rams in the second quarter, they managed to pull within 8 points by halftime.  Score at the break was 27-19.
