Brookville—Wednesday night against Punxsy Clearfield did not hit a single three pointer, but Friday night at Brookville they hit four in the first quarter alone.
In the first quarter the Bisons came out firing on all cylinders and looked as if they would be unstoppable all night long.
“Matt and Jarrin came out shooting the ball very well tonight. We got a lot of good looks tonight on fastbreaks. Cruise Kerr also gave us good minutes off the bench and brought us a lot of energy, “commented Coach Campman.
In the second quarter the Bisons struggled to score the way they did in the first period as a four minute scoring drought would carry over from the end of the first quarter into the beginning of the second.
Clearfield would come out a little cooled off and lackadaisical on defense as they would allow Brookville to claw their way back into the game and cut the lead to single digits midway through the third before Shiner would hit two big threes to closeout the quarter and put the Bisons up 51-44 at the end of the third period.
“We didn’t play great defense tonight, but we were able to shoot the ball well. We were able to wear them down defensively and keep the lead,” said Campman.
In the fourth quarter the Bisons would stiffen up their play and shut down the Brookville offense as they would pull away late with baskets by Shiner and Hryn on their way to the victory. The win keeps them steady as the number two spot in the District 9 AAA league.
