The Evanston boys varsity basketball team faced Jackson Hole Friday evening and looking at the scoring for the first quarter it was easy to see that Jesse Barker was working his usual scoring highlights by making 10 points. Combined those 10 with four by Seth Davis and two by Chase Critchfield brought the team score to 16 and it would seem the game was well in hand but the Broncos scored 14 points in the first quarter with three players.

Will Genaci, Xander Peterson and Ian Renkes all made 3-pointers Renkes scored his 3-pointer at the buzzer to end the quarter. Peterson added a field goal and Erich Elzemeyer scored from the free throw line.

The second quarter was more evenly matched with the Red Devils scoring 16 points and the Broncos scoring 17. Each team had two players score 3-pointers. Hunter hicks scored the most for Evanston with six points. Jackson’s high scorer was Armejo with seven points.

In the last few minutes of the second quarter Evanston seemed to get a few bugs worked out and slowed the game down a bit and played their game, which helped keep them in the game.

The half ended with Jackson leading 32-30.

The Red Devils found their game in the third quarter and scored 22 points, including one 3-pointer by Welling, one by Brandon Hicks, two 3-pointers by Wicks and a fifth 3-pointer by Chase Critchfield.

Jackson’s Gus Armijo scored the only 3-pointer for the Broncs in the third quarter. Xander Peterson continued to be the leading scorer for Jackson Hole with seven points.

At the end of the third quarter Evanston had pulled out to a 52-42 lead.

The 3-point shooting cooled down in the fourth quarter. Both teams scored 13 points in the final quarter. At one point it looked like Evanston would run away with the game, opening up a 10 point lead, but the Broncs started to come back in the closing minutes of the game. Most of the Broncs’ scoring came in the last few minutes of the game. Evanston hung on for a five-point win, 53-57, over the Jackson Broncs.
