Eels muzzle Bulldogs in Friday night road win

Monday, December 9, 2002

Clay City's Elliott Booe played just 22 minutes in Friday's win over Union, but he scored 23 points, seven boards and five steals while he was on the court.

Clay City posted a 69-33 road win over host Dugger on Friday night.

After a quick fieldgoal 36 seconds into the game by Elliott Booe, the game slowed as the Eels took a 14-7 lead through one quarter.

The Eels went on to start the second quarter on a 14-0 run and didn't let up as the Bulldogs trailed by 28 points at halftime, 41-13.

The Eels continued to extend their lead after halftime as Clay Jones put his team up 54-21 with a 3-pointer at the buzzer.

Turnovers and missed shots dug the Bulldogs a hole that was too big to crawl out of in the final period. A well rounded team effort however kept Union from falling much farther back as they were outscored just 15-12 in the final quarter.

Booe led the Eels with 23 points in just 22 minutes of action. He hit three 3-pointers in the game and topped the team with seven rebounds.

Brandon Chambers led the Bulldogs with 15.

With the win, the Eels extend their overall record to 2-1, 2-0 in conference play.

Clay City travels to Eminence tomorrow evening with junior varsity action beginning at 6 p.m.
