The Reading boys 8th grade basketball team, with a depleted roster from sickness, traveled to Homer Wednesday night to face the Concord Yellowjackets in tournament play. The Rangers had played them twice this year, splitting the contests.
As expected, it was a close contest. Zack Peiffer scored 4 of his 6 points in overtime to help secure a 20-17 victory for the Rangers. Tayshawn Bester scored 8, Nathan Robbins 4, and Colton Hoover 2. Isaac Tucker displayed lockdown defense on Concord’s best player, and set the tone for the Rangers dominance on the defensive end.
The Rangers will finish their season Saturday at Homer against the Union City Chargers. Game time is 11:15.
Great job, Rangers.
