Foxes Get Lost in The Corn Field as Yorktown Emerges With a 20 Point Victory

It’s never easy to have a quick turnaround coming off a tough loss, but when it happens in the first week of an already short 20 game season where every game counts, it can become a challenge almost impossible to overcome. Luckily, Yorktown athletes aren’t ones to stay down after getting knocked out, as the Boys’ Varsity basketball team gave the Crop their first taste of victory on Friday. Although it was a close contest throughout the early stages of the 3rd quarter, timely shots from the Huskers allowed them to separate themselves, and once they had the lead, they didn’t give it back. Once again, Eddie Brucaj made his presence felt with his team-leading 17 points and 7 rebounds, while the rest of the starting 5 each had 8 points to their names. The game against Ketcham showed the resilience and fighting spirit Yorktown had within them. However, there’s also something to be said about the ability to maintain a large lead and having the ability to close out games down the stretch. After all, there is no point in having a lead if you can’t keep one. In just two games, the Huskers have proved they can play from behind, in front, under the hoop, with Brucaj, and behind the arc, with sharpshooters Feeks, Costello, and Coles to name a few. On top of that, the home court of the Huskers has quickly asserted itself as one of the hardest places to travel to, as the Crop’s energy only continues to grow. Now the question is can they keep the intensity and energy high?
