Game Recap

The CC Knights 8th Grade A team traveled to Monticello to take on Twin Lakes (Roosevelt) on Monday night. In an extremely competitive game from the beginning – it was the Indians who started strong by jumping out to a 12-7 lead after one quarter. 13 first half turnovers didn’t help CC – but they stayed within striking distance trailing by just 8 at halftime 27-19. In the 3rd quarter it was all CC – as their half court trap caused numerous Twin Lakes turnovers and poor shots – as they outscored the Indians 16-3 to take a 35-30 lead. In the 4th quarter – it was Twins Lakes turn for a run as they got hot scoring the first 8 points of the quarter to take a 3 point lead. Cres Rodriguez tied it with a 3 pointer of his own and Donovan Bruce put the Knights back up by 2 with a driving lay-up with just over two minutes to go. The Indians answered with 2 more 3 pointers – but a Justin Brady basket with 10 seconds left cut it back down to 50-48. CC fouled with 6 seconds left and Twins Lakes missed the free throw. Clark Barrett rebounded the ball and drove it down for a 3 pointer – but his shot rimmed off as the horn sounded with the Indians getting the 50 -48 win. Justin Brady led the Knights in scoring with 17 – while grabbing 11 rebounds. Clark Barrett added 12 points, 10 rebounds and 6 assists – and Donovan Bruce finished with 8 points. In the B Team game – it was all Twin Lakes as they jumped out to a 18-4 1st quarter lead and never really looked back. 34 CC turnovers ultimately did the Knights in – as Twin Lakes went on to a 58-18 victory. Crew Blumling led CC in scoring with 5 points – and Ty Buche and Carter Johnson added 4 points apiece. CC’s next game will be after the Thanksgiving break at Rossville.
