The Reds lose to Valley after a close game

The boys basketball team lost to the Valley Vikings 69-62 after going into an overtime period on February 16. In the thrilling match up against Vikings, Eaton fell short by seven points in overtime after being tied at 58 points. The student section cheered in frustration and hope that the Reds would catch up up to Valley. After leading Valley for three quarters, a string of fouls took Eaton out of the final game. The Reds lost. “The outcome wasn’t very good, but I thought that our kids did well. We are getting closer to 90 possessions, which is our goal. We want to play at a fast tempo,” Head coach Dean Grable said. “We were ahead with double digits with about four or five minutes left of the fourth quarter. We had plenty of opportunities, but just didn’t take advantage of them.”

Eaton led the game throughout the first three quarters with a 50-38, until Valley strapped down and tied the game in the fourth quarter. “I felt that we had good energy to start the game and all throughout the third quarter,” Harrison Zeller (19) said, “We just lost it in the fourth quarter, which lost us the game.” Zeller scored a total of 15 points out of the 62 total points of the game.

Nic Inda (20) scored a total of 17 points with a 58 field goal percentage. Inda had a total of four rebounds and three steals.Being only a sophomore, Inda has played on the varsity team since his freshman year, making him one of the youngest players on the varsity. Inda scored 20 percent of the points throughout the game, making him one of the team leaders above the national average. His point average is 9.8 per game, while the national average is 5.1.

Grable said, “We’ve been successful on the road and we’ve struggled at home, but our kids are young. We have a very young team with a lot of potential.” With a 4-7 overall standing, the Reds have a long season to go. With six games left in the season before going into the district playoffs, the Reds prepare to play their rival Resurrection Christian in their next home game on January 30. As Sterling leads the 3A basketball, the Reds are in eighth with a 4-9 overall standing.

Their next game is today at Brush, Friday Jan. 19.
