MORENCI AREA HIGH SCHOOL: 51
The boys JV basketball team found itself in a tussle Saturday afternoon in Morenci. Morenci had a lot of energy and was playing aggressive, just like you would expect for team playing in front of their home crowd on homecoming night. However, the Redwolves would find a way to come away with a 60-51 non-league win. The win pushes the Redwolves record to 8-2 overall while remaining 4-2 in the LCAA.
The first half saw several lead changes before the Bulldogs finished the first half off on a big run to turn a five point deficit early in the 2nd quarter into a five point halftime lead. Down 26-21 to begin the 3rd quarter, the Redwolves would begin slowly chipping away at the lead. Clinton would outscore Morenci 21-14 in the 3rd quarter to take a two point lead with them into the fourth quarter. The Redwolves would do more of the same in the 4th quarter, outscoring Morenci by seven points again in the 4th quarter 18-11 to pull away.
Clinton was led by Calen Keith in the scoring column, finishing with 19 points to lead the way. Eli Turner put in 15 points while Devon Trent added 13 points to also reach double digits. Chase Gillman would chip in with 6 points, Quinn Walden 5 points, and Teagan Zbikowski 2 points to round out the scoring for Clinton.
The Redwolves will be at home for two games next week, first with a LCAA matchup against Hillsdale on Tuesday.
