The CC 8th grade A Team had it’s first game of the season tonight against WCJC opponent Wainwright. The first half was plagued with missed shots and turnovers on both sides – with the Knights holding on to a 19-18 lead at the half. In the 3rd quarter, CC’s half court pressure caused a number of Mustang turnovers on their way to a 20 point quarter and a 10 point lead heading into the 4th quarter. In the final quarter, Wainwright fought their way back to cut the deficit to just 2 points with just 4 seconds left – but good defense on the final play kept the victory for the Knights who go to 1-0 on the season. Owen Munn led the Knights with 12 points and 4 assists, followed by Tanner Fields with 11 points and Zach Kerr (despite foul trouble the entire night) added 8 points and 7 rebounds. **In the B Team game that followed – Issac Buche, Brady Miller and Riley Donahoe all scored 4 points apiece to lead the Knights to a 14-6 victory over the Mustangs. The B team is now 1-0 on the season – with both teams heading to Klondike on Thursday night for a game against the Nuggets.
