Cavalier Boys Hold Off Determined Spartans
February 14, 2014Tri-County Jr.-Sr. High School
Balanced North Newton scoring and lackluster defense on the part of the Cavaliers kept the Spartans in control of the game into the foruth quarter. The first quarter neither team could muster much offense. The Spartans held a 9-8 lead. The second quarter was more of the same and the Spartans led 19-17. Both teams picked up their game in the third quarter with the Cavs cutting the lead to 1 pt. 33-32. The Cavaliers energy level picked up in the fourth and their defensive presssure caused some early quarter turnovers and extra transition chances for TC to score and gain a lead. The Cavs were able to build their lead at the free throw line and garnered their 10th victory of the season 46-38.
Zack Patton scored 21 pts and was 9 of 12 from the line. Dane Hardebeck added 13 pts and Kyle Miller came to life in the fourth quarter to finish with 10 pts. The Cavaliers will host the Benton Central Bisons on Saturday, Feb. 15. The JV start time is 1:00 pm EST
