Romulus vs. Saginaw Recap

1 Mar

Romulus 93 vs. Saginaw 63- The Saginaw Trojans came down I-75 looking to avoid the fate of their fellow city’s high school team, the Arthur Hill Lumberjacks, who lost to Romulus earlier in February.  And things looked relatively good for the Trojans in the first half.  Surviving a 9-3 Romulus run during the first three minutes of the game to come back and only trail by two at the end of one.  Things changed for the Trojans in the second.  They went from playing teams basketball, to a bunch of guys it seemed trying to stuff their own stat sheet.  Romulus went on a 8-0 run to start the quarter and eventually got into the lockeroom leading by a margin of 42-19.  Giving Romulus the ability to cruise to their regular season ending victory.  Even the subs for the Eagles seemed to have outplayed the starters for Saginaw.


For Romulus, Wes Clark had 15 points and fellow senior E.C. Matthews had 26 himself.  Jalon Plummer also added 13 for Romulus and three three-pointers.  Kenyon Addison led Saginaw with 22 total points, and Jerry Smith tallied 19 for the Trojans.  Leo Edwards grabbed down 10 rebounds for Romulus, and did a nice job defensively against freshmen sensation Al Eichelberger for Saginaw.  I though coming into this game, Romulus would have a tough time guarding the two big men for Saginaw, Al and Joe Powell.  Powell was unnoticeable the entire game, and Al never dominated the way he is used to this season.
