The CC 8th Grade Boys A team traveled down the road to Tecumseh tonight for a match-up with the Bronchos. What became a game of runs – saw CC jump out to an impressive 11-0 lead after the 1st quarter. Tecumseh battled back to close to within 6 at the half at 19-13.In the 3rd quarter, the Knights sloppy play and turnovers allowed the Bronchos to get within 2 at 19-17. From that point on – CC went on another run (15-7) to closeout the game with a far from easy 34-24 win. Albert Schwartz (despite early foul trouble) led the way with 15 points and 7 rebounds – and Brinn Robbins added 8 points and 4 steals. CC is now 9-0 overall & 8-0 in WCJC league play.

In the 2nd half, the Knights showed some fight but it wasn’t near enough as they were handed their worst defeat of the season 44-11. Andrew Friel was a bright spot scoring 6 points to go along with 2 assists – and Jack Reisman added 3 points and 3 rebounds. The B team drops to 3-5 on the season.
