The CMS 8th grade boys basketball team hosted Taft from Crown Point for a conference match up. In a hard fought battle, the Trojans fell 35-20. The Trojans shot a season low from the field, and couldn’t get their offense going at any point during the game. After playing stifling defense in the second quarter, only allowing one point, the Trojans could not find a way to capitalize on the defensive success. TheTrojans mounted a comeback in the fourth, but fatigue kicked in, and a couple of easy press break layups for Taft sealed the game. The Trojans were led in scoring by Dominic Rhed, who scored 6 points, while 7 other Trojans added 2 points. The Trojans return to action next week when they will host Merrillville Pierce on Monday, and Portage Fegely on Tuesday.
