The Fountain Lake Cobras men’s basketball team hosted the Harmony Grove Cardinals at home at Irvin J. Bass Gymnasium. The Cobras beat the Cardinals 56-37 as the Cardinals drop to 4-19, 1-11 on the season.
Head Coach Jeff Hogue said, “It wasn’t pretty but we struggled to make shots tonight. We were playing from behind pretty early so we kind of had to change our game plan a little bit. Hopefully on Friday our shots will fall.
“I’m proud of them, they played hard we’ve just got to stay after it. That’s one thing, our senior leadership it’s been really good. They haven’t let the circumstances of the season determine what our motivation is out here on the court, you know they’ve continued to make those guys play hard. So really proud of my leaders.”
