The Kats got off to a terrible start. We trailed 10-0 to start the game and continued to struggle throughout the first half, falling behind by as many as 15 points in the second quarter. Kokomo trailed 28-16 at the half.
The Kats picked themselves up at the half and came out to have a far more energetic
third quarter and were able to cut the Tigers lead to 36-31 at the end of the third. Kokomo continued to fight in the fourth quarter and made enough plays down the stretch to pull out 47-44 win.
Peru played very hard and in many ways deserved to win the game. But I am very proud of the boys for their fight to come back and win this game and make critical plays down the stretch to secure the victory!
