The CC Boys 8th Grade A team traveled to play Battleground Tuesday night. A slow start, foul trouble (Albert Schwartz) and poor free throw shooting saw the Knights trail much of the first half until Brinn Robbins, Nick Page and Keaton Brooks all hit 3 pointers to give CC a 4 point lead at the half. In the 2nd Half, the Knights trapping defense held the Tomahawks to just 8 points while the offense scored 18 on their way to a 34-20 victory. Alex Hardebeck led the way for CC with 8 points and 4 steals – followed by Keaton Brooks, Brinn Robbins and Albert Schwartz all with 7 points and Nick Page added 5. In the B team game, it was an even slower start as the Knights could only scrape together 4 points in the entire 1st half to fall behind 15-4. The 2nd half was played much better – but the deficit was too much to overcome as the B team lose for the first time this season 27-21. Alex Meyer was the top scorer with 4 points followed by Ryan Elsner, Connor Simmons and John Rafacz who all added 3 points apiece. Both teams are in action again Thursday night at home against Wea Ridge.
