Eagles Fall Despite Effort

Bill Heath, Senior Sports Editor

Hubbard’s offense has struggled mightily throughout the season with creating and making shots on offense.  On Friday, they did that.  Canfield just did it a lot more.  They handed Hubbard its fourth straight loss Friday in Canfield by a score of 73-45. 

Hubbard battled, especially in the first quarter, with a young starting lineup, and tallied double digits in every quarter which they have not done in the past few games.  Senior Jordan Thomson led the Eagles with 14, while sophomores Derek Kopanic and Isiah Scott had 9 and 6, respectively. 

The team demonstrated a lot of hustle and will look to have their play carry over to their games this week, against Champion and Beaver Local.  These are two teams that are not to be taken lightly, but present very winnable opportunities.  The Beaver Local game is home, and the Eagles are asking you come out and support.  Senior Captain Gregg Santullo stated, “It would be really cool to have a big crowd, it’s a big game and nothing pumps us up more than having you guys behind us.”  So come out and support your Eagles Friday at home; tip-off at 7:30 p.m.
