Hopewell Junior High Basketball With Dominant Win Over Beaver Falls

Published

on

Some thought Friday’s matchup between Hopewell and Beaver Falls would be competitive, considering the talent and makeup of Beaver Falls players in general.

While that sounded good it wasn’t what transpired as the Vikings gold team dominated for four quarters and rolled over the Tigers 53-14, in head coach Doug Biega’s return to Beaver Falls.

The Gold Team is now 2-0 and have outscored their first two opponents (Beaver and Beaver Falls) by the score of 105-29.

Hopewell Sports Nation was at Beaver Falls and has this game recap.

1ST QUARTER SUMMARY:
-The beginning of the game was close as Hopewell seemed a bit overly excited and uncharacteristically missed some shots around the rim and turned the ball over. Fortunately, that only lasted a few minutes and settled in the rest of the game.

-Hopewell’s first basket of the game came on an in-bounds play from underneath their hoop as James Armstrong muscled his way up for 2.  Hopewell 2-0.

-Defense leads to offense as Tre Cameron intercepted a pass and took it in for a layup. Hopewell 4-0.

-More defense as Armstrong comes up with a steal and like he did on the football field, Boo threw a perfect pass to Maddox Fattore, who converts a layup. Hopewell 7-2.

-Like they do a lot, Hopewell was dominant on the boards, Cameron missed a 3-pointer, but Armstrong gobbled up the rebound and put it back in for two. Hopewell 11-2.

-More great passing as Rock with a nice bounce pass to Jack Biega, who converts around the rim.

END OF 1ST QUARTER: HOPEWELL 13 BEAVER FALLS 2

2ND QUARTER SUMMARY:
-More excellent passing as Hopewell with nice ball movement leading to Armstrong finding Rock. Hopewell 15-2.

-Defense, defense, defense. Bokor with the steal and takes it in for 2 + the foul. Hopewell 18-2.

-Beaver Falls tries to press the Vikings but it doesn’t work as Biega finds Rock for the layup. Hopewell 20-4.

-Transition offense as Cameron goes coast-to-coast for a layup. Hopewell 22-4.

-Armstrong with a steal at midcourt and takes it himself to the hoop for 2 plus the foul. Hopewell 27-4.

-The last basket of the first half comes on an out of bounds play as Rock finds Bokor for the layup. Hopewell 30-8.

HALFTIME: HOPEWELL 30 BEAVER FALLS 8

3RD QUARTER SUMMARY:
-More defense to start the 2nd half as Armstrong blocks his shot, gets the rebound and drives the length of the court for 2. Hopewell 32-8.

-Hopewell with a miss but Armstrong is underneath to grab the rebound and put it back in for two. Hopewell 35-9.

-Out of bounds play, Cameron nails another 3. Hopewell 38-9.

-Fattore misses a 3 but once again, Armstrong with the rebound and basket. Hopewell 40-9.

-Near the end of the 3rd quarter, the refs came close to losing control of the game. As Hopewell’s lead continued to grow, Beaver Falls players began to openly talk and antagonize the Hopewell players. In between whistles, some were getting face-to-face with Hopewell players, but nothing was being done about it. To the credit of the Viking players, they kept their cool and composure and showed maturity beyond their years.

-Cameron comes up with the steal and throws a 3/4 of the court baseball pass to Bokor, who connects for 2 plus the foul.  Hopewell 46-9.

END OF THIRD QUARTER: HOPEWELL 46 BEAVER FALLS 10

4TH QUARTER SUMMARY:
-Hopewell runs a play where they iso Armstrong and it works as he muscles his way up for 2. Hopewell 48-10.

-Bokor comes up with a steal and gets the ball up to Cameron, who nails another 3. Hopewell 51-10.

-Hopewell runs the break and Rock finds Armstrong for 2. Hopewell 53-10.

FINAL SCORE: HOPEWELL 53 BEAVER FALLS 14

***In the first game of the afternoon, the Hopewell Junior High Blue Team (0-2) lost to Beaver Falls, 49-7. The Vikings had a difficult time with the Beaver Falls pressure and controlling them under the hoop. Moving up in competition level has been a challenge through 2 games but these kids will no doubt continue to work hard and improve. Zach Sampson scored 4 points, Andrew Arzberger had 2 and Nykyeron Leonara connected on a free throw.

NEXT UP for the Hopewell Boys Junior High Basketball team is a game on Monday at Blackhawk.
