Senior Paul Kohnke drives for two of his eight points in the Jays’ tough loss to Brother Martin 50-36.

The Blue Jay basketball team got out to a fast 6-0 lead in Tuesday night’s home match up against Brother Martin, but the early points weren’t enough to take home the game, as Jesuit fell 50-36 to the Crusaders. With 5:24 remaining in the first quarter, Brother Martin earned its first points and there was no turning back.

Brother Martin started the second quarter with a nine point run. Jesuit scored five points in the quarter, three of those came from a sophomore Chris Beebe three-pointer.

The second half started much like the second quarter with the Crusaders pushing with five unanswered baskets. Senior Foster Moreau led the Jays in the third quarter, scoring four of his six points.

Senior Paul Kohnke scored eight points to lead the Jays, while junior Rob Weiss added seven and senior Trey LaForge added six.

The Jays now stand 0-2 in district play, with both of those losses at home.

Brother Martin’s victory snaped a four-game Jesuit win streak in the series with the Crusaders. Before Tuesday’s game, the Jays also won five of the last six meetings.

The Blue Jays are hoping to bounce back from the loss Friday at 7:15 p.m. when they take on Rummel on the Raiders’ home court. Follow game action live on Twitter @bluejay_hoops.
