Clinton Prairie High School
Faith Christian School
The Clinton Prairie Boys Basketball team traveled north to take on the Eagles of Faith Christian. It was a great atmosphere for a Saturday night in Indiana. The Eagles home crowd and the traveling Gopher Gang made for a rowdy crowd.
The Gophers played stingy defense in the first half, allowing only 20 points, but did not shoot well itself, finding themselves down 20-15 at the half. The third quarter was well matched as both teams hit their strides offensively but the Eagles lead remained at the end of 3, 37-33. The Gophers were lead down the stretch by Kale Morris, as the Gophers fought hard to get road win in a very tough environment. Tough defense, along with some big shots on offense lead to a 56-48 win on the road.
The Gophers were lead Kale Morris, scoring 21 points, grabbing seven rebounds and blocking four shots. Jared Stillwell added 14 points and six rebounds, making 6/6 from the free throw line down the stretch. Merrick McGraw added eight points, seven rebounds and four assists. Jacob Price and Drew Scott both added six points respectively. Doug Coapstick added a free throw and pulled down four rebounds.
