The Mighty Bucks junior varsity basketball team had their first game against the Monarch Knights. Their opponent started the Monday, November 28th game with two to zero record for the 2016-2017 season, which gave the Knights the advantage as they tipped off in their home gym. But that two to zero record didn’t phase the Deerfield Beach, as they turned out to victorious.
With the Bucks leading most of the game, it was still an intense play-by-play match that came down to the wire in the fourth quarter. With many lead changes the Bucks held the ball until the last second, ending the game with a winning buzzer beater lay up. Creating the close final score of 31-29, for the Mighty Bucks first game of the season.
The next game for the JV Bucks will be at the DBHS gym against the Monarch Knights again. If the Bucks win they will improve to 2-0 for the season, which has just gotten started.
