The Clark county Indians ran into another Reno Pinkston team, as they opened at home.
In the opening quarter the Indians came out ready to show WNC they were ready to play behind the twin towers Colt Sommers and Michael Brennan’s four points each, and took an early lead. But WNC took over the lead, and never looked back as they took the quarter 17-12.
The second quarter saw the Wildcats shooting threes, and their inside play was also there, as they outscored Clark County 17-7, to take a commanding 34-19 halftime lead.
In the third quarter the Indians, behind Michael Brennan’s six points, looked like they were going to cut the lead, but it did not last, as the Wildcats again added 3 treys, and 4 dueces, and racked up 21 points, and took the third 21-11, to put the game away.
Both teams played almost even in the fourth, as Sommers added six, and Brennan added four, but WNC downed the Indians 69-42.
The Indians were led by Michael Brennan with 16, followed by Colt Sommers with 14, Bryan Plenge and Javis Vineyard had 4 each, Ethan Allen and Lynn Williams had 2 each.
The Indians evened their record at 1-1.
