Junior High Boys A-Team Falls To A-C Valley At Buzzer, Downs Redbank Valley (02/13/17)

(By Coach Keith Murtha)

Jr. High “A” Basketball Team Battles to the Buzzer

Clarion and A-C Valley met on Tuesday February 7th for a well played jr. high game. A-C Valley put the pressure on right away and the Bobcats found themselves in a hole right away. Battling back through the remainder of the 1st quarter and through the 2nd quarter the Bobcats tied it up at the half.

A well played second half resulted in a 4 point lead for the Bobcats with less than a minute to play. A-C Valley scored cutting the lead to 2, an unfortunate Clarion turnover. An A-C Valley foul on the floor gives the Bobcats on the ball on the sideline with less than 10 seconds go. Clarion runs an inbounds the ball, attempts to score- No good A-C Valley takes the ball coast to coast and scores a buzzer beater!

Jr. High “A” Cats Defeat the Dogs

Back in Action for a showdown in New Bethlehem,with the Redbank Valley Bulldogs.

The Bobcats started out hot putting on pressure right from the opening tip. Clarion built a 10 point lead at the half and never looked back.

Hunter Craddock and Cal German led the scoring for the Bobcats with Tyler Schmader and Ethan Burford chipping in. Ben Murtha had the lone 3 pointer of the game. Mitch Geiger and Matt Terwilliger saw substantial playing time as well.

Clarion finished with a 20 point victory.

This was our best played team game and I am very proud of the guys today!
