Todd Beamer’s Stifling D Smothers Inglemoor
By Colin Caruso
The Todd Beamer Titans gave the Inglemoor Vikings a long Saturday afternoon, allowing just 11 points in the first half to the Vikings, and forcing nine steals. The first quarter was close, with Beamer taking the slightest one point lead into the second. But with a veteran team with the likes of Trey Burch-Manning and Bogdon Bliznyuk, you knew the Titans were going to start heating up.
The Beamer 1-3-1 press in the second quarter was stifling. They forced turnover after turnover and the Vikings could not seem to figure the press out. After a 20-4 second quarter in favor of the Titans, the game was fully in Todd Beamer’s hands.
Beamer came out in the second half still hot from the second quarter, but slowed the game down as the third quarter winded down. In the fourth, Lynnwood was finally able to break the 10 point mark in a quarter, scoring 15 against the Titan reserves. Beamer showed a great defensive performance in this game. Don’t be surprised if you see them playing late in February like they did last year.
