Clear Lake defeats North Shore 61-48

When can you remember a North Shore team scoring only 15 points in one half? Maybe never. Ranked 14th in the greater Houston area, the North Shore Mustangs, in their dark red "away" uniforms looked like a bunch of reindeer during their warm-up Tuesday night in the Lake gym. But there was no Dasher, no Dancer, no Prancer to be found, and there was certainly no Comet on the court as the Clear Lake Falcons dominated a lackluster Mustang team once the game got under way. Fresh from their appearance in the Fort Bend Outback Classic Tournament last weekend, the usually speedy Mustangs suffered from the “I just played 5 games in 3 days” blues as the Falcons held them to 9 points in the first quarter, 6 points in the second, and 9 in the 3rd period. With the score at 31-15 at the half, there was little doubt about the outcome of the game early on. The Mustangs were 5 for 20 in the first half. The Falcons were rested and ready. Their defense was tenacious, their offense assertive. Even with the absence of 6’8” forward Aaron Greenwood, they tacked on another 19 in the 3rd to make the score 53-24. But the tournament-weary Mustangs cranked it up in the fourth quarter outscoring the Falcons 24 to 8. The final score was 61-48. Connor Atchley led all scorers with 18 points. Dan Rieke added another 13. Each had 9 rebounds. image
