Onekama's 5th Grade Portagers vs. Trinity Lutheran Manistee

The fifth graders had their first ever basketball game today, Tuesday, February 26, 2013.  What a game!  The boys battled back from being down over 10 points at halftime.  Determination and a great team effort pulled the Portagers within three points.  The final score was 24-27, in favor of Trinity Lutheran.  Even though the boys were playing against some older players, they never gave up.  I couldn't be more proud of them.  Way to go Portagers! ~Coach Bennett

  February 26, 2013 was my team's first basketball game. We played the Trinity Lutheran Tigers. It was a great game and we were losing at halftime 16-8, but when we came back out of the locker room we were on a mission. We came very close to taking the lead a couple times, but eventually the clock ran out and we lost 24-27. We played a great game. I had 12 points, Austin had 6, Luke had 4, and Cody had 2. Although it wasn't enough to hold off there big man from scoring 19 points! It was a great game though and I can't wait for our next game on Thursday the 28th.

Last night the Onekama Portagers elementary basketball team had there first game. It was a good one. There was a really tall boy on the Trinity team. He made like all there baskets. Personally I think it was too bad, but the score turned out to be 24-27. We lost but I think we had a lot of pride and determination. ~Dalron G.
