Braves Fall To Abilene 65-54

The Council Grove Braves Basketball team took on Abilene on Tuesday, coming away with a 65-54 loss, despite a strong fourth quarter run.

The first quarter would see the Braves down by four points, which would set the tone for the next two quarters. The Braves would play catch-up in the second and third quarters, but would fall short. The fourth quarter saw the Braves’ defense kick into high gear and the team would outscore Abilene 23-9. The run, however, would not close the gap and the final score saw Abilene on top 65-54.

“The boys competed well last night, we just have small stretches when we don’t play to our capabilities,” said Coach Bruce Hula.
