Quiz Bowl Treks to Kahoka to Take on Clark County
March 18, 2011By Ryan Kennedy of Centralia High School
The JV started off slow, letting undefeated Clark County jump out to a 60-20 lead in the first quarter. The Panthers battled back in the second quarter, outscoring the Indians 50-0 to take 70-60 lead into the half. The third quarter belonged to Clark County, as they outscored Centralia 60-30 to reclaim the lead going into the fourth. An unanswered 70-point salvo from the Indians to start the fourth quarter all but put this one out of reach. The Panthers did end on a 60-20 run to end the game with a respectable 160-210 final. Donna and Quinton led our scoring with 30 apiece, and Taylor had 20, all in the fourth quarter. Clark County’s JV remains undefeated, while Centralia’s falls to 4-3 in conference play.
The varsity was up next, prepared to take on perhaps their toughest conference challenge yet in a rematch of the CCC tournament finals. This one started out close, as an early 20–point Centralia lead was wiped out by Clark County. A nice run from the Panthers, followed by 20 unanswered points from the Indians ended the first period at 80-50, Centralia.
In the second quarter, Centralia pulled away. They started the quarter with a 90-10 run, sweeping one of Clark County’s bonuses along the way. In total, the Panthers outscored Clark County 160-30 to put the halftime score at 240-80. In the third quarter, Clark County managed to outscore the Panthers, 60-40, to cut the lead to 140. That and a solid fourth quarter from the Indians weren’t enough, however, as the Panthers walked out of Clark County High School with a 440-210 win. Aaron led the team with 160 points, while Michael and Chelsea each had 40 points.
The 7-0 varsity Panthers travel to Mark Twain on Tuesday, March 22. A win would secure a third straight CCC title for the Quiz Bowl team, thanks to their head-to-head win against one-loss South Shelby.
