WC boys fall, 62-46

Rain, flooding and a long drive sometimes wreak havoc on a road team, but Columbus Christian was out to prove this point untrue. However, with just one win for the season, the Washington Catholic boys basketball team had something to prove themselves too.

Eventually though, Columbus Christian outlasted the Cardinal Boys and took a 62-46 victory home with them at the Birdcage Saturday night.

Washington Catholic (1-5) looked to push early and use their quickness against a bigger Columbus Christian (13-1). The first quarter saw both teams trading baskets and at the end of the first, Columbus Christian had a 12-11 lead. WC was then faced with the adversity of a smaller bench when forward Armand0 Ramirez went out for the game with a shoulder injury.

Despite this, WC continued to run their full-court break in the second quarter and was able to score six quick points on the Knights to take a 20-19 lead midway through the second. Columbus Christian would not be intimidated though, as they respond with an 8-0 run led by senior Delene Shaull. Yet WC would not give up and a three by Thomas Bradley would stop the run and cut the Knights lead to five and Columbus Christian took a 28-23 lead into halftime.

The third quarter was opened up with a quick layup from Columbus Christian but answered by Cardinal Ethan Wichman and the lead was cut too two midway through the third. But the Knights of Columbus Christian would answer with another strong run and extended their lead 40-32 at the end of three.

Missed free throws and unforced turnover would be the turning point in the game and give Columbus the advantage. After Washington Catholic got to the line twice to open up the fourth Nick Bridgewater hit a quick three-pointer and Columbus Christian opened up a 10-point advantage. Two quick turnovers for WC leads to five quick points and the lead was extended to 15 midway through the fourth. WC kept fighting though and scored five quick points to cut into the lead. But Columbus Christian would go on another six-point run and from there cruised to a 16-point victory.
