Morrison’s eighth-grade night went off without a hitch Tuesday, as the celebration continued throughout the night after the Eagles knocked off the Eastside Bulldogs, 41-25.“The boys played very hard,” said Morrison coach Kyle Cannon. “I’m so proud of this group. They put on a great performance for the home crowd to see on eighth-grade night.”The Eagles jumped to a 22-13 halftime lead over the Eastside crew, led by Kason Holder who had the game-high score of 22 points, but it was a decisive third-quarter rally by the Eagles who outscored the Bulldogs, 9-1, which resulted in the deficit Eastside couldn’t overcome.Will Hyder added to the total tally scoring 8 points working inside for the Eagles, followed by Ryland Holder with 6, Dawson Waldron 3 and Tyler Dunn hit for 2 points.Morrison’s defense held all Eastside players to single-digit scoring in the game by generating turnovers and getting rebounds on both ends of the court.Charlie Moore led Eastside’s offensive drive, scoring 9 points, followed by Cruz Reyes with 8, Caden Beaty 4, Dylan Partain 2 and Alex Jones hit for 1 point from the line.Tournament action begins Monday, Jan. 30 with times and brackets TBA.
