Cards win easy in weekend homestand
January 14, 2012By James Stephens of George Rogers Clark High School
Inside a near full capacity Letcher Norton Gymnasium Friday night, the Clark County Cardinals scalped the Indians of Montgomery County in an impressive 52-35 win.
Clark struggled in the first half leading only 24-23 at halftime, with senior Adam Fatkin going scorelss by getting into early foul trouble with fouls on back-to-back possessions during the second quarter.
But the second half was a completely different story for the Cardinals. Fatkin finished with eight points and pounded the boards with 15 rebounds.
Montgomery junior Omar Prewitt was held to just one point in the second half, thanks in part to the swarming defense of Clark senior Charlie Rogers, and a double technical foul that gave Prewitt his fourth personal foul late in the third quarter, the other going to Cards senior Bopper Stenzel.
Rogers scored six of Clark's first ten points, but was able to harass Prewitt throughout the game playing out-phsyicaling the thinner and more-finesse Prewitt.
Stenzel finished with 16, despite a poor shooting effort in the first half.
Clark (18-2) bounced back today and took down Meade County 71-46 in the Central Bank MLK Classic held at Letcher Norton Gymnasium.
Montgomery (14-5) played today in the Colt Classic at West Jessamine and lost to East Jessamine 79-78.
Clark plays next on Friday January 20th at home against Tates Creek (9-8).
