The 7th and 8th grade Cheyenne-Eagle Butte Braves hosted the Dupree Tigers on Thursday, February 27. The 7th grade teams faced off first in an exciting matchup which had some memorable moments. Players from both teams were very gracious and supportive when Braves player Mason Hollow Horn entered the game to play. When Mason would reach Braves’ goal territory, players from both C-EB and Dupree, would feed him the ball, giving Mason time to concentrate and make his shots. Then fans from both sides burst in applause and cheered him on. It was great to see such wonderful sportsmanship, respect, and consideration within the young men.
Playing next were the 8th graders who played a high-tempo and fast-paced game. The defense from both teams was great, along with their offensive plays. In the end, the Braves edged out over the Tigers, 62-60.
