Eagles look to avenge losses against Rams

Published 9:00 pm Wednesday, January 20, 2010

All is not lost in the land of the Eagle, thanks to a recent stint of success.

The Goshen High School boys’ basketball team is currently riding a two-game winning streak, with no intention to see it come to an end anytime soon.

“I’m dealing with a young group so it’s important to keep them humble,” head coach Jonathan Deveridge said.

“We have been blessed enough to win two games recently, but we still have to stay focused mentally and hungry.”

The team is currently 2-13 overall, and 2-2 in Area play.

Staying hungry is something Deveridge said will be important for the remainder of the season – especially for its game tonight against area rival, Headland Home.

Just last season, GHS lost to HHHS three times, twice in the regular season and once in the opening round of the 2A Area 5 tournament.

This season, the Eagles have already lost to the Rams twice, once in a holiday tournament and then again just last week at Headland Home.

Now, with some momentum on its side, GHS will get a chance to exact some revenge.

“The team remembers what it felt like to lose all those times,” the coach said. “And I think that is definitely going to make a difference when the two team’s play again [tonight], especially at home.”

“This has turned into a rivalry game for both teams, and I think people are going to see I much different basketball team take the court [tonight],” added.
