The West Point-Beemer Boys Basketball Team squandered a 7-point 4th quarter lead at Wisner-Pilger on Saturday, losing 49-47 on a Jack Knust buzzer beater before falling 41-29 at home to Pierce Tuesday night.
The Cadets led the Gators 18-14 at halftime and won the 3rd quarter 17-14 to take a 35-28 lead into the 4th quarter.
Wisner-Pilger outscored West Point-Beemer 21-12 in the 4th quarter.
The Bluejays led the Cadets 11-5 after one, and won the 2nd quarter 8-6 to take a 19-11 lead into the locker room.
Pierce won the 3rd quarter 8-5 to extend their lead to 27-16 at the end of three.
The Bluejays won the 4th quarter 14-13.
West Point-Beemer (6-10) takes on Wayne (13-5) on the road Thursday night in a game that can be heard on 107.9 the Bull.
The Blue Devils lost 46-45 in Double Overtime at home to Hartington Cedar Catholic Friday night.
Wayne has a very good and nice team once again this year.
The Cadets have their hands full coming into this one.
West Point-Beemer played Pierce tough though and responded well following Saturday’s loss I thought.
So there’s no reason to think that the Cadets can’t and won’t give the Blue Devils a battle also.
West Point-Beemer always plays Wayne tough, and I expect that to be the case once again come Thursday night.
Tip-off is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. on the Bull.
