JUNIOR HIGH BASKETBALL

SIKESTON -- Both the Sikeston seventh and eighth grade boys basketball teams defeated visiting Jackson Monday night.

The eighth grade won 42-26 while the seventh grade got it done 55-41.

For the eighth grade, Sam Cox led the Bulldogs with 19 points which included five 3-pointers.

Sikeston led 8-5 after the first quarter but then jumped ahead by 16 (26-10) at halftime.

"We played very hard," Sikeston eighth grade coach Derek James said. "Every kid got to play and they each played their tails off.

"We shot the ball very well. Our press worked like it was supposed to. Those two things guided us to victory and I'm very proud of the team."

A dominating effort from seventh grader Fred Thatch led the Bulldogs past Jackson in the second half.

The Bulldogs, who had to combat Jackson's superior height during the first two quarters, were eventually able to pull away in the second half.

Sikeston (2-0) held a slim 29-24 lead at the half, but outscored the Indians 17-9 in the third and 17-8 in the fourth.

"They had two players over 6-0 that really gave us some problems," seventh grade coach Eric Voorhees said. " But, our press eventually wore them down which is what it's exactly designed to do."

Thatch finished with 26 points, Dylon Mills had nine and Keyth Blissett scored eight.

Both the seventh and eighth grade will play tonight when they host the Dexter Bearcats starting at 5 p.m.
