The Clark County Indians traveled to Tiger county to do battle with the Canton Tigers on Friday night, February 16.. The Indians hold a win over Canton this year, but tonight would be different.
In the first quarter, both teams looked like this was their first ball game ever, as the quarter ended at 4-4.
In the second quarter, we saw five Indians score two points each, and put up a 10-8 quarter, and went into the locker room leading 14-12.
Their last game they came out in the third quarter and won the game, but tonight the table turned, as they lost the game in the third quarter. Canton put up a 19 point quarter to Clark’s 11, and the Indians trailed 31-25. Ethan Allen led the way with seven points. The Indians went to the charity strip 12 times, and made seven of them. Allen added another five points, but the Indians fell, 21-20, and came up short, 52-45 as Canton went to the free throw line 11 times, and made 9 along with 6 baskets. Clark County took the first half 14-12, and Canton took the second half 40-31.
Leading the way for the Indians was Ethan Allen with 12, Michael Brennan followed with 11, Colt Sommers added eight, Bryan Plenge and Javis Vineyard added five each, while Scott McAfee and Lynn Williams had two each.
The Indians will close their regular season at home Tuesday night February 19, which is Senior Night, against the Highland Cougars, who are the number one seed in the 3-A District Tourney at Palmyra, starting on Monday, February 25.
