Thunderbirds lose at Sullivan

Friday, January 18, 2013

Sullivan jumped ahead 45-27 at the half and held off a second half rally, defeating Eastern Greene 72-63 in a high school boys basketball game at Sullivan Friday night.

Sullivan improved to 11-3 while Eastern Greene slipped to 9-5.

"Regardless of the score, this was a much-improved effort for us," said Eastern Greene coach Levi Carmichael. "We showed a lot more toughness, a lot more energy and a lot more passion. That is something we had not seen in the last four or five games.

After getting down, we made a run and got it to single digits in the second half. We fought and battled, but sometimes it is hard to overcome a team with physical bodies like Sullivan."

Tyler Brough led the Thunderbirds with a game-high 30 points, as he made five 3-pointers. Logan Frye added 19 points. Trevor Yoho started at center and scored eight points.

Sullivan won the junior varsity game 42-28.

The Thunderbirds will host Linton-Stockton next Friday and play at Bedford North Lawrence Saturday, Jan. 26.
