SENTINEL TRIBUNE Sports Chargers fall to Raiders, twice By Derrick Jenniges Coach Last week the WWG Boys Basketball team hosted a pair of home games, both against the Raiders. Tuesday night, January 25, it was Round Lake Brewster and Friday night, January 21, Fulda as the Chargers offen- sive struggles continued. RLB 63 WWG 41 RLB jumped out to a quick 8-0, but WWG man- aged to go into halftime only down 25-16. In the second half the Chargers cut the def- icit to 39-32 following a three point play by senior guard Aaron Theisen. RLB finished the game on a 24-9 run, despite a career high 16 rebounds (11 offensive) from Jared Lindaman. Lindaman (10 points, 16 rebounds) and fellow postmate Jacob Comnick (I0 points, 12 rebounds) each had double doubles. Theisen led the Chargers with 12 points and 5 assists. WWG converted on just 3-21 three point attempts and shot under 30% from the field for the third straight contest. WWG won the rebounding battle by pulling down two dozen offensive rebounds. Fulda 53 WWG 38 In front a large crowd on hand for the Coaches Vs. Cancer fundraising event Friday night the Chargers gave the Fulda Raiders all they could handle for the first 24 minutes, but Fulda's depth and aggressiveness on the offensive glass seemed to be problematic for the Chargers down the stretch. WWG led for over 16 min- utes in the first half, but trailed 25-23 at the break. John Elzenga and Aaron Theisen combined for a trio of three pointers to give WWG an early advantage. Fulda used a methodical 21-5 run, consisting of offen- sive putbacks and transition layups, over the first 10 min- utes of the second half to pull away from the Chargers. WWG again struggled shoot- ing the basketball as they converted just 22% of their attempts. Fulda shot just 31%, but took almost two dozen more shots than the Chargers thanks to an over- whelming advantage on the boards. Jacob Comnick was the lone Charger in double figures with 11 points. Theisen and Elzenga each added 9. The Coaches Vs. Cancer event was a great success as people from the communi- ties were very generous and supportive. Everyone seemed to have an enjoyable evening for a great cause. Almost 150 prizes were donated from area business- es for the event. This week the Chargers will be at Red Rock Central Thursday, and Ellsworth Saturday. Saturday's game at Ellsworth will be the Panthers Coaches Vs, Cancer event. They have activities planned, including silent auctions, raffle drawings, and bingo games.

Lady B-Squad Chargers fall to the Raiders By Adam Kletscher Coach This past Saturday, January 21, the Chargers headed to Fulda to take on the Raiders. The game was an action-packed, quick- paced thriller. The Chargers went back and forth with the Raiders for the entire game. The Chargers were down 36-23 at halftime, but that didn't get them down. After the break the Chargers came out with the same intensity they had in the first half. The ladies would cut the Raider lead to under 10 points, only to have the Raiders make a couple of buckets to once again extend their lead. The Chargers never gave up, but ended up losing 58-46.
