After a loss to the Athens Bulldogs on Friday, Jan. 3, Nelsonville-York had a week to prepare for their home game against the Meigs Marauders on Jan. 10.
N-Y did not lead the entire game, as there was sloppy play by the Buckeyes and they would wind up losing their third game in a row, 52-50. The outcome of this game would be decided by a couple of free throws.
With 3.7 seconds left on the clock, Senior Josh Fayette stepped up to the line for a crucial free throw in the bonus to possibly send the game into overtime. However, he would come up short on his shot and the clock dwindled down to double zeros. Nelsonville shot only 20% from the line and this proved to be their downfall.
On the following day, The Buckeyes traveled out to Tomcat territory. Riding three losses in a row, it was time for N-Y to break that streak and they did just that, beating Trimble 64-59.
Nelsonville-York sits at fourth place in the TVC-Ohio with a record of 1-3, and a 6-5 overall record.
Coming off of a two-game win streak, the Nelsonville-York Lady Buckeyes hit the road for a matchup with Wellston.
Not having stepped foot on the court in almost two weeks, the only question these ladies would have to answer is how would they come out after the long break.
The Lady Bucks would fight hard and come out with a 62-61 victory. NY still stands in third place in the TVC-Ohio with a 3-2 record, and a 9-3 overall record.
The Lady Buckeyes will have their game against Amanda on Jan. 7 postponed for a later date.
