Wild Weather = Fun Game For The Bears
The Basha Bears enjoyed a first round play off victory over Tucson High 55-0 Friday night at Basha. Wild wind and showers kept it very interesting for both teams and all the fans. Basha had the wind to start the game and jumped on the Badgers 21-0 behind Rajhan Meriwethers running and two TD passes by Kyle Duran. In the second quarter the Bears drove it 89 yards into a stiff wind to take a 24 to zero halftime lead.
The Basha defense once again pitched a shut out but had to stop Tucson 4 times inside the 2 yard line to end the first half. What a great goal line stand by our defense who did an excellent job all night. Levi LeBaron, Brandon Shaw, Zach Denney, Ricky Fuess, Terrell Harrison, Justin Burns, Alex Benites, Zach Dehart, and Jake Johnson all had a very good night are are starting to understand their improvement and technique is vital to our team. I am very proud of the defense and their understanding about “team play.”
The offensive line once again paved the way for an outstanding effort by sophomore running back Rajhan Meriwether who had 225 yards and 3 TD’s. The line was led by seniors Evan Sarver, Drew Mahooty, and Jerad Humphries, and underclassmen Luis Mejia, Ivan Sanchez, and Alex Winter.
It was a fun victory and we are looking for great improvement this week heading into the quarter-final round of the state play offs. We have the # 2 ranked Brophy Broncos Thursday night at 7 p.m. at Phoenix College.
It is going to take our best effort of the year to be on the field with Brophy. They are very disciplined and very well coached and do not make mistakes. We need your support to make the trip and cheer the Bears on.
See you at the game. bb
