The Seneca boys baskettball team got back on track with a comeback win over the Ithaca Bulldogs last Friday.

With the victory the Indians improved their conference record to 1-1, following a loss to LaFarge in the opener 54-38.

Friday against Ithaca things definitely did not look good at halftime as the Indians trailed the Bulldogs by nine points. However, the team ralllied in the the third quarter and recovered to win.

“We shot well the whole game,” coach Dave Boland said later. “It’s just that we were not doing so well on defense in the first half.”

The Indians have been behind in the first half of both conference games so far this season, but were able to rally to beat Ithaca.

“I hope it’s not a trend,” Boland said of the team’s first half struggles so far.

The Seneca Indians play Wauzeka-Steuben at home on Friday, Dec. 13 at 6 p.m. and Coulee Christian at West Salem on Tuesday, Dec. 17, at 6 p.m. For his part, Boland is hoping to get some wins before the holiday break.
