The Abbott 8th grade boys basketball team lost a tough game to a talented East Middle School on Thursday at Abbott. East’s outside shooting and defense just before the half proved to be too much for the Eagles to overcome, despite a strong second-half comeback.
The grit and hustle shown by Jalen Riley, Xavion Rogers, Gemarr Stimage, Kelton Lovell and Tayshawn Thomas down the stretch got the Eagles back into the game. If more free throws and short shots had fallen for the Eagles, the outcome might have been different.
The Eagles close the season next week with two road games at Detroit Country Day and Royal Oak.
