Archer Mills was the leading scorer for Clarion with 6 points. Marshall Powers and Henry Baldwin each contributed 3 points and Jake Burns chipped in with 1.

The second game featured Clarion’s 7th graders. This game was much closer. Jake Burns came out with the hot hand, scoring 5 points in the first quarter. However, Karns City held a 10-8 lead after the period. Burns kept the shooting touch going in the second, scoring all 4 of Clarion’s points. The Bobcat defense held the Gremlins to just 2 points in the second quarter and the score was tied at 12 at halftime. Karns City outscored the Bobcats 10 – 7 in the third quarter and 9 – 4 in the final quarter to set the score at 31 – 23 in favor of the Gremlins.
