Jackets bounce past Lumberjacks

The Yel­low­jacket men started their bas­ket­ball sea­son Thurs­day night with a huge win over the North­land Col­lege Lum­ber­jacks. In an elec­tri­fy­ing atmos­phere the men showed what a long pre­sea­son can pro­duce, wins.

The team was lead by Jar­rod Peter­son as he scorched the net for 25 points, includ­ing five-three point shots and an out­stand­ing bounce pass to Aaron Corry who would dunk it home and get the crowd on their feet. Corry fin­ished the game in dou­ble dig­its as well scor­ing 10 points in 19 min­utes of action.

Austin Cahil was the final Yel­low­jacket to score in dou­ble dig­its, notch­ing 13 points in 15 min­utes of play. Seniors Trent Davis and Bren­dan Bauer added seven and five points respec­tively. Davis did more than num­bers show though, being a senior leader and direct­ing traf­fic on offense and defense.

The Lum­ber­jacks were lead by Car­nell Shep­pard who scored 20 points for North­land and Adrian Flo­res who scored 10 points in the game. No other Lum­ber­jacks were able to reach dou­ble dig­its in scor­ing and the sti­fling defense of the Yel­low­jack­ets held the Lum­ber­jacks to 33.9 per­cent shoot­ing from the field and a mere 23.8 per­cent from the three-point line.

The Yel­low­jack­ets will host Augs­burg Mon­day night, tip is set for 7 p.m.
