- Seventh grade scores 85
North Clay's junior high basketball team earned a sweep of their games on Monday evening in convincing fashion.
Evidently their first loss of the season didn't set well with the seventh grade team who put together a pummeling against North Central after falling for the first time against Woodrow Wilson.
The Knights came out firing with a 20-point first quarter and added an amazing 36 third quarter points on the way to an 85-32 victory.
Trent Lancaster scored eight of his 14 points in the first period and eight different Knights scored in the third quarter. Andrew Butts, Lancaster, Zac Niehaus and Jacob Musgrave all scored six points apiece in the period as North Clay cruised to the victory.
Musgrave had 14 in the win, Butts added 12, Niehaus 10 and both Sean Hauser and Caleb Mershon had eight points. Jordan King and Carson Kleiber added seven for the Knights who are now 5-3 on the season and host Sullivan this evening at 6 p.m.
The eighth grade team got eight first quarter points from Clay DeWeese and pulled away in the second half to a 48-35 victory over North Central.
Deweese led the Knights with 20 points in the game, including a trio of 3-pointers and both Justin White and Jonathon Bradshaw contributed seven in the victory. Caleb Mason added six as North Clay improved to 8-1 this year and will join the seventh grade tonight versus Sullivan.
The sixth grade Knights faced off with host Cloverdale and earned a pair of wins over the Clovers.
The 'A' squad used a big half to get a 49-22 win on the road as Chance Talbot had 16 points and seven different North Clay players got in the scoring column.
Damon Hyatt had eight points and both Kodie and Jordan Girton added six while Dillon Reynolds had five and Brett Jadvani chipped in with four.
In the 'B' game, the North Clay defense was impressively stingy, holding the Clovers to just two points in a 38-2 win.
Brockton Wells led the way with 14 points and Cole Watts tallied six with T.J. Tilley, Jacob Ninesling and Brock Wheeler adding four.
