Beardstown Park Distict Youth Basketball
Due to the mid-week holiday the only youth basketball this week was in the All Pro Division on Friday night. In game one the Green Grizzlies nearly burnt the gym down as they were on fire from the field in scoring a 39 to 10 win over the Yellow Lakers. Missing several players due to illness and travel the four Grizzlies played with no subs and the extra court time seemed to help their shooting eye as nearly everything they shot found its way to the bottom of the net. Trey Riddell had 15 points to lead the victorious Green followed by Bo Perry with ten, Parker Bell with eight and Eliel Merecedes with six. Meanwhile the tough luck Lakers could not buy a basket especially early on, getting six of their ten points in the final quarter.
