BOYS BASKETBALL

APPLETON EAST 68, NEENAH 64

NEENAH – The Patriots led by a whopping 16 points in the second half before enduring a furious rally from the Rockets to win their Fox Valley Association opener at Ron Einerson Fieldhouse.

East (2-0 overall, 1-0 FVA) led 57-41 on a 3-pointer by Jackson Parker at just over 9:30 AM in the bottom half, but Neenah rallied for a 17-4 run to take in 61-60 on a pair of free throws from Chevalier Emery Jr.

East took the win by putting in an 8-4 run to end the game, with Joey La Chapell converting a conventional 3-point play and going 5-for-5 on free throws along the trajectory.

“We talked about knowing that good teams would attack us, so we have to be prepared to answer the bell,” said East coach Paul Bauer. “So that’s what they were willing to do and did. Now there are some things to work on, but if you have a full team effort and an extra motivation to get us started, good things can be done.

“There are great teams in this state and our competition is tough. We have to be ready to go.”

La Chapell led east with 16 points, with Caleb Glaser adding 15 points and Zach Steigenberger adding 14 points.
