Defensive Letdowns Spell Trouble For Jeffs

Fairbury’s offense played consistent for one half in both of its contests over the weekend, but scoring droughts and breakdowns on the defensive side proved too much for the Jeffs.

However in the second half, Fairbury’s offense struggled to score, and Auburn continued to shoot the basketball well pulling away from the Jeffs for a 62-44 win.
Connor Livingston paced Fairbury in scoring with 11 points, Blake Bauer, 10 points, Dalton Hinrichs, seven points, Nate Klaumann, five points, Cody Huss, four points, Spencer Feldkamp, three points, and Brent Hirsch and Nathaniel Stapaules scored two points each.
A lack of second half scoring and a letdown on defense hurt the Jeffs in their Saturday evening 42-35 home loss to Columbus Lakeview.
