The Clear Lake Falcons met the Brazoswood Buccaneers for the first time this season in the second district game for both teams. The Falcons never trailed as they put on an impressive defensive exhibition led by Nandi Wijay and Connor Atchley who each had 4 steals. At the end of the first quarter, the Falcons led 13-6. At the half it was 29-15. In the third quarter the Falcons, continued their smothering defense (14 steals total for the game) but cranked up their offense to outscore the Buccs 28 to 13 in the period. Understandably, the Buccaneers had no solution to stopping Falcons 6'11' post man Connor Atchley who went 7 for 9 from the field, but the Bucs also fell short when it came to stopping Turbo Wijay who went 5 of 6 from the field and Micah Walker who went 4 for 4. Notice the Falcons scored as much in the 3rd quarter as their opponents scored in three quarters. Not just the guards looked like a bunch of speed demons as they raced around the court in a defensive frenzy throughout the game but the big men often got in on the act as well. Offensively, the Falcons held their turnovers to less than 10 for the first time this season but their free throw shooting fell short (5 of 11). Scoring for the Falcons: Atchley 17, Wijay 12, Walker 9, Greenwood 8, Rieke 6, Mitchell 5, Oswald 5, Cerny 4, Abner 2. In other district action, Clear Brook beat Creek at Brook and Alvin beat Galveston Ball.imageimage
