Boys struggle to find hoop at Arthur Co.

Wolves win 69-46.

ARTHUR—For the first time this season, the Brady boys could not knock down a three-point goal.

In fact, the Eagles found themselves struggling to make a basket of any kind in the first three quarters at Arthur Saturday, falling to the Wolves 69-46.

“We were all disappointed,” said coach Rich Britten. “We sure thought we’d be able to compete with Arthur County.”

And they did compete well in the fourth quarter. The Eagles scored 32 points in one period but were already too far in a 52-14 hole to make a comeback.

“We put up 13 three-pointers and not a single one fell,” Britten said. “We don’t want to rely entirely on the outside shots but we needed at least a couple of those to go in.”

Christian Arterburn and Brad Ward led Brady with 10 points each.

The Eagles fall to 1-9 on the year/ They travel to Hayes Center Friday and host Callaway Saturday. The No. 2 state-rated Cardinals are unbeaten and the Bears are 4-5.

“We have to go in with the attitude that we have nothing to lose,” Britten said.
