Summit boys fall to Pullman Christian
Playing host to the Pullman Christian Eagles last Saturday night proved to be no remedy for Summit Academy’s boys, as both jv and varsity teams dropped contests to the visitors, 41 to 46 in the jv contest, and 38 to 54 in the main contest.
In the jv matchup, Summit led early but later were never able to catch up as their halftime lead of 13 to 11 gradually fell prey to turnovers and second half Eagle pressure. Chase Nuxoll with 10 and William Schlader with 8 led the Summit attack, with Joseph Lustig chipping in six, and Jacob Uhlenkott 5 during his one quarter of playing time.
In the varsity event following, Summit fell behind early and saw their chances for their first victory of the evening go down the tube, as the visiting Eagles slowly extended their 9 to 6 quarter lead to 23 to 18 at the half and 40 to 28 at the three quarter break. The final score of 38 to 54 was not indicative of the tempo of the game however, as the Summit boys played scrappy and posed a constant threat to the visitors. A poor shooting percentage and turnovers again contributed to their added loss.
Brandon Rehder led all Summit scores with 15, with David Spencer adding 10 in the effort. Other Patriots scoring: Zach Frei-2, Stephen Spencer-4, Dustin Lustig-2, and Jacob Uhlenkott-5.
Uhlenkott was the workhorse on the boards, pulling down 15, David Spencer adding 10 and Zach Frei 8. The game’s outcome was slowly determined by the total of 24 turnovers committed by the mistake prone Patriots.
Next action for the boys and the Summit girls is a double header at Salmon River Tuesday night.
