“Our team came ready to play tonight. Wilber was 9-1 coming in with a good basketball team. We did a good job in the second half of forcing turnovers with our press and then converting them into baskets on the other end, allowing us to turn a two point deficit at the half into a comfortable win,” said Kirk Faris, head boys basketball coach at Johnson County Central Schools as the Thunderbirds upset the Wolverines 52-34 in action played at home January 9.

Lady Jets Conquer Johnson-Brock 41-27 with First Half Scoring

The Sterling Lady Jets defeated the Johnson-Brock Lady Eagles 41-27 in action on the road Friday night, January 3. “Coming into this game we knew it was going to be a really tough test for us. They have climbed their way up to being ranked sixth in the state in D1. When I saw the score that they came up short against HTRS, I knew that it was going to be that much more challenging for us,” said Coach Pfeiffer.

“I know that as a team, whenever we suffer a loss, we come back more focused. We raise our effort and really concentrate on fixing the areas where we didn’t get the job done. “Talking to Coach Mackey before the game, he made it clear the Johnson-Brock girls basketball team had been addressing things and were going to be ready to prove that they are the team that had started off the team undefeated, and not the team that had just lost their last game to HTRS,” said Coach Pfeiffer.

The Lady Thunderbirds of Johnson County Central Schools traveled to Freeman on January 3 to face the Freeman Lady Falcons. Unfortunately, the Lady Falcons dominated the game in two key categories, the freethrow line and fouling, which were two big factors in the 57-43 loss for the JCC girls.

According to Karen Hunzeker, JCC’s head girls basketball coach, the Freeman Lady Falcons outrebounded the Lady Thunderbirds by 19 rebounds. Freeman also scored 23 of their 57 points from the freethrow line. “We fouled too much which really put us out of the game,” said Coach Hunzeker. “We do not have enough players to foul that much and still be competitive,” she added.
