The Boys 8th Grade A team took on Wea Ridge tonight at home. A great start helped CC jump out to a 14-2 lead – before the Huskies battled back to cut the deficit to just seven points at the half. That was as close as the Huskies could get – as the Knights 2nd half defense created offensive opportunities that pushed the lead over 20 and an eventual 41-17 win. Albert Schwartz led CC with 15 points, 6 rebounds and 5 steals – followed by Keaton Brooks who scored 11 points (including three – 3 pointers) and Alex Hardebeck added 7. The A team is now 4-0 on the season. In the B team game, the Knights played well in the 1st half but still trailed 15-14. In the 2nd half, they played even better and pulled away for a 32-25 victory.
