The High School Boys Baskeball teams travleled to Throndale on Friday February 11, 2011 to take on the Bulldogs. With the girls’ season over, the JV boys started play in Thorndale’s nice new gym. In the last meeting of these two teams, Thorndale was able to put up some impressive numbers using an aggressive press and fast play. The second time round, would look much like the first. The first period was near dead even with Thorndale JV coming out on top of Lexington JV by a score of 10-8. #12 Corey Strain & #32 Nate Holcomb each put in two while #34 London Jacob tallied the other 4. The play over the season has improved greatly and both teams were full of hustle and energy.

By the second period, the Eagles began to wear of the Thorndale press and in turn the Bulldogs fed off of Lexington’s slower pace. Thorndale held Lexington scoreless in the second while adding 21 to their total to make it 31-8 Thorndale at the half.

By the third period Lexington was trying to hang on while Thorndale began to pull back on the press. #30 Marcus Cassassa put in a free throw and Jacob added 2 more.

The game ended with Thorndale on top 56-15. Both Jacob and Strain were able to add single buckets each for the Eagle effort. #34 London Jacob had a stand out game for the Eagles, scoring and rebounding.
