Coach Jerry Bomholt used one word to describe Franklin Community High School’s game against visiting Indianapolis Arlington on Tuesday night: sloppy.
Nevertheless, the Grizzly Cubs managed to win their seventh-straight contest by beating the Golden Knights, 52-35.
“The first half, especially, was very uncharacteristic of us,” Bomholt said, who is in his first year at Franklin . “We had a couple of shots blocked early on, and we got out of character. I think we were a little intimidated with their athleticism.”
The Grizzly Cubs attempted only 17 shots during the game’s first two quarters, a half that saw neither team lead the other by more than three points.
By comparison, Arlington (4-6) only attempted 11 first-half shots.
