A tough first half defense held Eureka to a mere seven points, allowing Columbia Falls to stretch to a 30+ point lead at the half and walk home with the win over the Class B Lions Thursday night, 69-40.
When Eureka’s inside defense was effective, the Cats’ Michael Williams poured in a few three pointers that opened up the inside for leading scorer Grant Getts (12 pts) and the rest of the team – spreading the scoring out across 11 team members.
|Ryan Holder (#23) gets a little too aggressive and is called for charging Wildcat Kyle Howell (#11)|
|Williams and Mackey Nolan (#21) put the pressure on Eureka’s Jesse Thomson (#11). Nolan drew a foul this time around.|
|Grant Getts (#44, behind Holder) and Kyle Howell (#11) deny the open shot to Ryan Holder (#23).|
|Thomson’s hair stands on end as he tries to penetrate against Kaleb Johnson (#35).|
|As usual, the student section is rockin’ the house.|
