OIL CITY SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL: 61
Tonight we battled extremely hard for three quarters, but Oil City exploded for 21 points in the 4th quarter to come out on top.
At the end of 3 quarters we were down 35-39, and only had committed 3 turnovers. We took care of the ball extremely well and were pretty patient. We did not force too many shots and stayed in control on both sides of the ball.
In the fourth quarter Sayyid Donald from Oil City knocked down a pair of three pointers that expanded the lead to 10 and we could never get back into the game.
Ethan Knox and Jake Hornbeck from the Oilers paced their offense with 17 and 15 points. We did not have a great answer for them at times. We knew that Hornbeck is a great dribble drive guy, but we had a hard time stopping him again, and Knox just plays hard and does the hard things for the Oilers. We did not step up enough to shut these guys down.
We have some positives to take out of this game for sure, but it's disappointing that we put up a good fight but could not come up with a big win of course.
Rylan Smith had 21 and 3 rebounds. He played a pretty good game all around tonight, against some pretty tight defense.
Brian Cressley got back to himself scoring 10 points and grabbing 5 rebounds. We need him to have at least 10 points a game for us to keep up on the offensive end.
Markus did not have the officials on his side tonight, commiting 3 charge calls BUT he ended up with 9 points and 2 assists.
Chamberlin played the most minutes he has as a varsity player with 23. He is really getting some good time and he is just great in big moments. He is not afraid to defend or score and he is settling in and feeling more comfortable. These minutes are huge for him and he is getting a good taste of what is to come for him.
