Game Recap

The 8th Grade Boys Basketball A Team took on Wea Ridge Thursday night in WCJC league action. Maybe it was their full court pressure defense or possibly the friendly home rims – but CC came out on fire – out scoring the Huskies 18-2 in the first quarter. The game became closer throughout as Wea Ridge kept chipping away at the lead – getting it as close as 8 early in the 4th quarter. A Donovan Bruce 3 pointer and some key free throws down the stretch put the game out of reach – as the Knights went on to a 49-38 win. Justin Brady led CC in scoring with 13 points – followed by Keagan O’Connor who added 12 points, 10 rebounds and 5 steals – and Clark Barrett who finished with 10 points, 13 rebounds and 6 assists. The CC A Team goes to 3-1 on the season. In the B Team game that followed – it was a different story as the Knights could not buy a basket. The Huskies held CC scoreless in the first half and took an 18-0 lead at halftime. In the 2nd half, CC played better – but it wasn’t enough as Wea Ridge went on to a 37-7 victory. Alex Denney played well for the Knights scoring 2 points and grabbing 7 rebounds – and Chris Gallo finished with a basket and 4 rebounds. The B Team drops to 1-3 on the season. Both teams travel to Twins Lakes for another WCJC conference game on Monday night.
