The CC 8th Grade A Team traveled to Clinton Prairie on Wednesday night to take on the Gophers. Poor shooting and 30 turnovers turned what was a close game in the first half into an easy victory for the Gophers by a score of 58-37. Billy Owens and Justin Brady led CC in scoring with 9 points each – and Clark Barrett added 8 in the loss. The B team game that followed was much more competitive as CC & CP battled back and forth throughout. With just 15 seconds left Chris Gallo’s rebound basket tied the game at 27 apiece and the teams went to overtime. In the overtime however – the Knights shooting went cold – as the Gophers held on for a 33-27 win. Andrew Kline led the way for CC with 10 points and 7 rebounds – and Linver Cardenas chipped in with 5 points and 3 steals. Both teams play at home next Monday night against West Lafayette.
