Cougars Outlast Altamont
67-56 In Regional Play
After a sluggish first half, the Cougars regrouped and put together a solid final two quarters to hold off the pesky Altamont Indians in the semifinals of the St. Elmo Regional on Wednesday night.
The win ups the Cougars' record to 23-4 and puts them into the championship game on Friday against the winner of the other semifinal game, which is played Thursday night between Stew-Stras and Cowden-Herrick.
In what has been a disturbing trend lately for the Cougars, they dug themselves into an early hole and had to fight like mad to get themselves out it.
The Indians used a well-planned defensive scheme to shut down the Cougar offense and coupled with some hot-shooting, had the Cougars on the ropes for most of the first half.
Spencer Patton scored all 12 of his points in the first two frames to keep them close, despite having to leave with foul trouble late in the second period.
Nathan Lotz also contributed to the scoring, but he too was saddled with three fouls and had to make an early exit. By half's end, the Cougars were only down three, but it seemed like thirty three with the way things had gone to this point.
The Cougars buckled down defensively in the second half and finally found a way to crack the Indian defense. Putting up 17 points and allowing just 13, they found themselves finally in the lead with a 44-43 advantage between quarters.
Nick Jones came alive in the quarter as he scored all 9 of his points on 4 buckets and a free throw.
The Cougars finally pulled away in the 4th as they tacked on 23 more points and held the Indians to another 13-point effort. Free throws played a big part of the Cougars scoring in the period as they canned 13-14 free shots, while connecting on 18-21 for the game.
Brock Adams led the offense with 19 points and Lotz(13), Patton(12), and Burns(12) also contributed with double figure scoring.
Adams, Burns, and Matt Hicks all advanced in the 3-point shooting competition and will shoot again Friday night at 6:50 before the championship game, which starts at 7:30.
