Bison Cagers Use Big Second Half to Beat Beavers 49-34

Dubois—When two rivals meet up midway through the season you can always throw the records out the window.  Dubois came into Monday night’s game against the Bisons without having won a single game, but they didn’t show it early.  The Beavers came out ready to play, but the Bisons weren’t going to be their first victory of the season.  Clearfield clawed and fought their way to a 49-34 win.


Clearfield came out as flat as they have all season scoring only six points in the first quarter and struggling to keep the ball in their possession.  Dubois, on the other hand, came out ready to play and showed that by going on an 8-1 run before a timeout by Coach Campman with 4:06 remaining in the first quarter.  Even after the timeout Clearfield struggled to play any better in the quarter, falling behind 13-6 at the end of the period. 


In the second quarter both teams struggled with turnovers and missed shots.  Clearfield especially had problems in the second and third quarters hitting free throws as they shot 17-31 from the free throw line in the game.  “Tonight we got the proverbial ugly win.  We didn’t shoot the ball well from the line tonight, and we need to do a better job offensively” commented Campman on the game.


Clearfield would trail 23-16 at the half but the momentum of the game would soon swing.  The Bisons were able to force numerous Beaver turnovers and hold them to only two points in the quarter and pull ahead by three points going up 28-25 at the end of the third.


Clearfield would continue their tough defense into the fourth quarter, while at the same time getting the offense going.  The Bisons went on a 10-0 run before a Dubois timeout, but the timeout did not slow them down as they would score twenty one points in the quarter and out scoring the Beavers by 3:1 in the second half.


The Bisons were able to get solid games from Parker Herrington and Todd Hryn, who were able to net 13 points apiece.  “Parker didn’t start off well at all tonight, but he was able to play much better in the second, third, and fourth quarter and that was a key to us winning.  David Ryan also gave us good minutes off the bench tonight; he just gives us a different spark of energy, “said Campman.


The Bisons will be in action again Thursday night when they travel to St. Marys to take on the Elk County Catholic Crusaiders.
