Bragg Middle School 8th Grade Boys Fall to Homewood

Coming off an extended time off, the Bragg Middle School boys 8th grade basketball team looked out of sync early and had trouble with Homewood’s press. This lead to a strong first period of easy layups and 3 point shots by Homewood as they took advantage of several turnovers by the Bragg Rockets.

Bragg battled back from a large deficit in the second period and went into halftime down by only 10 points.

Homewood made adjustments at the half and maintained a comfortable lead throughout the second half, but Gardendale showed grit and would not go away quietly. A hot hand by Connor Ma, with 5 points within a 15 second span cut the lead to just 6 with 1:30 left in the game.

The Rockets could not further close the gap and ended the game 9 points down with a score of Homewood 48 and Gardendale 39.

Gardendale will take what they learned in a tough road loss with them to a home game next Tuesday, January 11th against Clay.
