Cavalier Boys Split Games With Rossville and Frontier
February 3, 2014Tri-County Jr.-Sr. High School
Friday night the Rossville Hornets thought they were going to be lucky to get to TC with their bus stopped twice to wait for accidents to be cleared from the roadways. They shook off any ill effects from the long ride and came out running on all cylinders. The jumped out to a 16-11 first quarter lead and carried their momentum over into a 17-11 second quarter. The Cavs tried to overcome a sub par shooting night but could only play the Hornets even over the last two periods and fell to a 53-41 loss to the Hornets. Zack Patton led the Cavs with 20 pts. Dane Hardebeck added 9 and Kyle Miller 7.
Frontier's last second shot went in but not before the final tick of the clock went off and the Cavaliers held off the final charge the Falcons could muster. Goiing home with a 44-43 MWC win. Dane Hardebeck led the Cavalier attack with 14 pts. Blake Justice hit 2 treys in the fourth quarter and Nate and Zack Patton added treys to help the Cavs fend off a hard charging scrappy Frontier squad. The Cavs held a 24-21 lead at half time and built leads of 5 pts twice in the second half only to have the Falcons fight back and take 1 pt. leads twice in the half. Timely 3 pt shooting kept the Cavs in contention throughout the contest.
The Cavs are 8-3 on the season and 2-0 in MWC play. The Cavs will travel to Seeger Wednesday night Feb. 5. The jv start time is 6:00 pm. The game will be played at the Williamsport Elementary gym. NOT at Seeger H.S.
