In their home opener, the Glenbrook Apaches lost a heartbreaker to Westside Christian, 43-42.
Both teams struggled to generate much offense in the early going, with Westside Christian holding a slim halftime lead. They would extend that lead to nine points before Glenbrook made a push in the late minutes of the third quarter to cut the lead to 29-28.
In the game’s final moments, the Apaches trailed 41-39. Some good ball movement helped get Joseph Windham open for a 3-point try which he nailed to give Glenbrook a 43-42 lead with just over a minute to play.
Glenbrook’s Garrett Sanders came up with a big-time block to give the Apaches possession, but an unforced turnover while trying to run out the clock gave Westside one final chance.
They would make the most of it, as a 15-foot jumper went in with 2.8 seconds remaining, handing Glenbrook a loss.
“We have got to be better under pressure and finish games,” Glenbrook head coach Jeff Dalton said. “We have to find a way to score more points. I tell the guys all the time this is a process, and we will work hard to get it figured out.”
Joseph Windham led the Apaches with 20 points, followed by Cade Conterez with 12.
The Lady Apaches jumped out to an early lead and never checked up, doubling up the Westside girls, 48-24.
“I am proud of the girls effort so far,” Lady Apache head coach Rendi Dillard said. “We’re taking steps in the right direction every game.”
Olivia Dalton led the Lady Apaches with 12 points and 14 rebounds, followed by Carsin Spurlock with 10 points and Kate Marvin with 8 points.
