The 8th Grade Boys A Team traveled across town tonight to take on the Nuggets of Klondike. Turnovers, missed layups and bad decisions made for a truly ugly game by CC throughout the first 3 quarters. With the game tied at 21 early in the 4th – the Knights finally picked up it’s defense and converted some easy baskets. Then down the stretch, Nick Page hit four big free throws and CC outscored the Nuggets 15-5 to finally pull away and get the victory 33-23. Albert Schwartz led the way for the Knights with 10 points and 6 rebounds – followed by Brinn Robbins with 9 points and Keaton Brooks added 7. In the B team game, CC found themselves down 12-9 at the half. The 2nd half was a different story as they outscored Klondike 18 to 10 for a come from behind win 27-22. Connor Simmons led the Knights in scoring with 6 points and Alex Meyer chipped in with 5 points and 4 rebounds. Both teams play again next Tuesday night at Battleground.
