Game Recap

The CC 8th grade boys A team traveled to Battleground on Tuesday for a battle with the Tomahawks. For the second time in three games the Knights struggled with their shooting – scoring just 8 first half points to trail 17-8 at the half. Clark Barrett scored the first basket of the 3rd quarter to cut the lead down to 7 – but from there Battleground outscored CC 10-2 the rest of the quarter to lead 27-12 at the end of the 3rd. It wasn’t until the 4th quarter when the Knights finally started to hit some shots – including two 3 pointers by Cres Rodriguez and another by Billy Owens. The 15 point CC 4th quarter helped – but it was not enough as they fell to the Tomahawks by a score of 38-27. Clark Barrett led the Knights with 10 points and 7 rebounds – and Cres Rodriguez added 8 points and grabbed 5 rebounds. The Knights drop to 2-1 on the season. In the second game of the night the B team played well in the 1st quarter trailing by just two at 10-8. From there however, Battleground took control and never looked back outscoring CC 29-5 the rest of the way to gain a rather easy win by the score of 41-13. Owen Adler played well for the B team scoring 4 points and grabbing 5 rebounds – and Andrew Kline added a basket to go along with 5 steals. The B team drops to 1-2 on the season. Both teams are in action again this Thursday night at home against Wea Ridge.
