It was the second game of the week for the Cubs as they faced non-conference rival, DeKalb County on Monday, November 30. The Lady Cubs won, while the Cubs lost in an important game for both teams.
Fast forward three nights as the two area squads squared off again before the Cancer Tourney. In the girls' game, the Lady Cubs defense held the Lady Bears offense in check during the first 12 minutes allowing two points to take a 24-2 advantage at the half.
"It was really big for us as a team," Moore said. "Coming out of this week with two wins has been a big confidence boost."
The Lady Cubs were led by Moore with seven points. Eight different players scored for the victors. The Lady Bears were led by Lexie Deese with 10 points.
As for the boys game, although tied at 10 after the opening half, the Cubs broke it open in the third thanks, in part, to three long distance bombs by Jacob Brock. The Cubs defense allowed just three Bear points making the score 24-13 after three quarters. WGS finally pulled away for the 33-21 win.
"I am just proud of them, because they did all they could do," Brock said after the win. "We put it out on the floor to win."
