Last Friday, January 11th, East Hickman basketball teams faced Creek Wood, a well- known opponent. The East Eagles fought wing and talon in the match-ups but the Red Hawks unfortunately got away with wins against both the boys and girls. For the boys’ team, all was going well until the last quarter when Creek Wood made their advancement on the scoreboard. The boys suffered defeat by a mere point, with a final score of 52-53. Lady Eagles finished with a score of 30-37, possibly being their least successful game. With defeat heavy on the players’ minds, they congratulated the other team, holding their heads high. The Eagles will go up against the Red Hawks again at Creek Wood on February 5 beginning at 6:00 pm.
