On Tuesday, Nov. 17 our Varsity Team have played at #3 USA Today Oak Hill Academy, one of the best and most accomplished high school programs in the country. The final score was Oak Hill 72 and Mountain Mission 56, but it was our Challengers that controlled most of the game, though losing composure at the end and allowing the opponent’s run.
Oak Hill is a very difficult place to play as the Warriors have not lost the game there in many, many years. Our boys did a fantastic job playing terrific defense and attacking the Warriors effectively, leading at half time 25-23! In the middle of the 3rd quarter Mountain Mission increased the lead to 7 (34-27) but Oak Hill went on a big run after and ended up controlling the game in the 4th.
Overall, Mountain Mission played a terrific basketball game going against one of the best teams in the country and playing in one of the toughest environments to play at.
