Thacher's Championship Run Ends

The Thacher boys' basketball team had their sights set on the CIF-SS Division VA Championship, but that dream came to an end tonight as Rosamond defeated the Toads 47-26. Thacher was unable to get into a rhythm on offense and the Roadrunners' pressure defense forced the Toads into too many turnovers. Rosamond outscored Thacher 16-5 in the second quarter and built on their lead from there. Thacher was paced by Drew Cole and Bennett Kissel with nine points each. See next Wednesday's edition for the full story and additional stats and quotes.
