After a tough start to the season, the boys basketball team is looking for the light at the end of the tunnel.
The Bocacts first faced the Aliquippa Quips January 19 and fell short 55-39.
“We came out with decnet energy in the first half, but then we came out of halftime with no intensity,’’ explains senior Marco Mamone about the loss.
This would be the last game that the Bobcats would play until early February due to concerns with COVID-19.
Such starts and stops to the season did nothing to help and made it hard for the bobcats to develop the momentum needed to get wins.
February 4, the Bobcats would face the Ambridge Bridgers where they would lose in a close game 77-66—this being the most points that the Bobcats had scored all season in a single game.
“We played a good game, we fought hard, our intensity was there. We need to clean up little things like making layups, making that extra pass, and getting back quicker on defense. We’ll get them when they come to our house,” stated senior Charlie Higgs after the Bridger defeat.
“We played well but we need to step it up a notch if we want to win,” added senior Sebastian Hill.
Just 24 short hours later the Bobcats would travel to the Montour Spartans’ home court where they lost to the Spartans 64-40.
The Bobcats next game is tonight when they play on the road and face the powerful Lincoln Park Performing Arts Leopards.
