Jays capture victory over ACCHS

Senior Eric Renyer shoots for two during the varsity boys’ basketball game on Friday, February 3, versus ACCHS.

It has been awhile since the Bluejays and the Tigers had met each other on the court, but it was Sabetha that took the victory in the first meeting with a 12 point differential. The Jays took control of this game early, built a sizable lead in the first half and cruised to the win over ACCHS by a score of 52-31.

After having their post players nearly shutout in the paint at Perry in the game prior to this one, the Bluejays worked hard to establish a force in the paint.

“Our guards attacked on the offensive end and created easy shots for our posts,” said Head Coach Scott Burger.

Eric Renyer led his team in scoring in the first quarter with 5 points with Kyle Grimm accounting for 3 in the paint and from the stripe. Joe Gruber had 4 points in the first, and Sabetha led 15-7 after the first frame.

ACCHS was held to just 2 points in the second quarter, while the Jays had five players post points. With the posts drawing attention in the paint, it left the perimeter open for the shot. Keegan Cox and Brett Stallbaumer took advantage of the opportunity and each swished a triple, and Renyer added 4 more points in the quarter to bring his personal tally to 9. Sabetha took a 29-9 advantage into the locker room at the half.

The Tigers outscored the Bluejays 10-7 to open the second half. But then Sabetha took advantage of Tiger turnovers and scored in transition in a fast paced assault.

“We worked on getting out in the fast break,” Burger said.

ACCHS did not even have time to set up their defense with the Jays running the court. Sabetha led 36-19 headed into the final period.

With nearly a 20 point advantage headed into the final quarter Sabetha’s reserve players got the chance to log some varsity minutes. Jamel Bishop bolted out of the gate to pull down a couple of critical rebounds and marked his team’s first 4 points of the frame. Bishop had 6 points, while Gruber and Grimm chipped in 4 points each in the fourth quarter.

Braeden Cox inked points with a late deuce, and Sabetha came away with the “W” beating the Tigers, 52-31.

With the win, the Jays improve to 7-4 in the Big Seven and 8-7 overall.

Sabetha faced the 10-1 Nemaha Central Thunder on Tuesday, Feb. 7, on the road before having an open Friday night this week. The results of this game were not available at The Herald’s press time.
