At the end of the first quarter, the Sequoits were up 19-14. It was a close game; however, by halftime, the Sequoits broke it open to reach the score of 31-16. Their great shots and intense defense escalated throughout the game as they became more eager to diminish the chance of the Bulldogs catching up. 

Senior Carter Webb had an incredible shooting game and was the lead scorer with a total of 21 points, 16 of his points just in the first half. Webb created a great lead between the Bulldogs from the beginning. Junior Marshall Gerhke was the next-highest scorer, scoring 14 points throughout the game. Gehrke carried the end of the game with 10 points alone in the second half.

With Webb and Gerhke sinking their shots from the start of the game until the end, the Sequoits maintained their high energy on and off the court. Their desire to win pushed them to keep up the energy until the very last second. 

Besides the strong offense, the Sequoit’s defense was just as intense. Gehrke had a total of seven rebounds and junior Jason Lee had a total of five rebounds. Junior Teddi Wetu ended the game with six assists. High rebounds and assists created a tough defense that the Bulldog’s offense could not counter, and their defense could not defend. 

With a great game against Grant, the Sequoits are preparing for an intense game on Friday, Feb. 9, at home against the Wauconda Bulldogs for a chance of splitting the title of conference championship for the first time in 43 years. Make sure to bring tons of energy and support your Sequoits at 7 p.m.
