On Tuesday, January 3, the boys’ basketball team traveled to Highland to play a senior-led team.
The Chieftains came out hoping to shoot the ball well, but were unable to hit their early shots. Highland took advantage and was able to build an early lead. Riverdale fought back with some key shots and smart defense, but still found themselves down by 12 points going into halftime.
The boys knew they’d have to play more aggressively in the second half, and that’s exactly what they did to narrow the margin. Drives to the baskets consistently ended with free throw attempts, which the Chieftains turned into easy points. And steals on the defensive end gave the Chieftains extra opportunities to get back into the game.
