The CC Boys 8th Grade A team took on East Tipp tonight at home in a WCJC match-up. After trailing 4-2 early in the 1st quarter – CC (thanks to some extremely impressive defense) went on a 22 -3 run to close out the half leading 24-7. In the 3rd quarter, (with 3 players sitting out with foul trouble) the Knights bench helped keep and even increase the lead to as many as 20. The 4th quarter saw the Trojans get a little closer – but it was not near enough as the Knights came a way with a nice win by the score of 42-30. Brinn Robbins had a very good game scoring 12 points and grabbing 5 rebounds. He was followed by Albert Schwartz with 10 points and 5 steals – and Nick Page, Keaton Brooks and Alex Hardebeck all added 6 points apiece. CC is now 8-0 overall and 7-0 in the WCJC. In the second game of the night – the B team fell behind by 8 at half and as many as 12 in the 2nd half. Despite the deficit, the Knights fought their way back to tie it 31-31 at the end of regulation. Though the comeback was quite impressive – CC could not finish the job – falling in OT 35-31.
