The Guardian Angels Central Catholic Boys and Girls Basketball Teams host David City Aquinas Friday night in games that will be heard on 107.9 the Bull.
The girls game features the 6-3 Bluejays against the 2-4 Monarchs. David City Aquinas has lost four in a row, but GACC Head Coach Jerry Stracke still expects a good game. “Yeah we can’t really look at their losses cause they play some very good teams. It’s one of those games that could go either way. It just depends on who’s hitting that night, who’s on, who shows up. and who’s working really hard out there on the court. It’s one of those games that should be fun to watch.”
GACC won last year’s game 68-48.
The Bluejays lost 58-44 at Wayne on Monday. Stracke says the game was a tale of two halfs. “The first half I was very happy the way we played. Defensively we did a great job. And then in the 2nd half we didn’t execute very well on the offensive end, didn’t take care of the ball. We also didn’t do a very good job on their top scorer. We let her get to the basket too easy.”
Stracke says overall he’s been very pleased with the season so far as the girls are playing hard.
In the boys game, GACC comes in at 2-4 while David City Aquinas is 4-2. GACC Head Coach Alex Stieren’s team is coming off a 64-46 loss at Oakland-Craig Tuesday night, a game in which they played well in the second half. “Yeah we kind of came out flat and a little stressed almost is what it looked like. We had a long 10-day period where we didn’t play any games, and I think that kind of was a little bit of a factor. But we came out a little slow and started picking up the pace a little bit, but Oakland was too much for us to handle.”
The Bluejays were without Jared Minnick, who was sick.
GACC beat the Monarchs 61-53 in David City last year.
Coverage of the girls game will start around 6:00 p.m. with the boys game to follow on the Bull.
