SEQUOYAH- The Chiefs had a different look on Friday
Not only were the Chiefs missing
Taylor Hawkins, but also Brett King. Reuben
also limited in playing time due
to injury. Those differences were notable, but so
offense Sequoyah ran.
During Daniel Curtis' tenure at the school,
an up-tempo game has been
the hallmark of
his teams. The Chiefs slowed the pace to a crawl
at times, often using an
all-out stall to have a
chance to win going into the fourth period. It was
a gutsy call, but
in the end the Chargers were too
much. Central foiled the strategy by pulling away
final quarter to a 59-36 win.
Andrew Millsaps had a game high 23 points,
while Shon Stevens
added 10. Braden Strickland
had a free throw, while Abernathy, and Seth
Schaffer added two a
Central always had the lead in this one.
вЂњWe did a decent job of converting our
on offense to get a lead and that's important
in a game like this,вЂќ said Central
Doug Armstrong. вЂњSequoyah had a good game
plan and would have been willing to take
a shot if
we had broken down on the defensive end.вЂќ
In a slow-paced first period, Central
only once, 3-2, but Levi Holley came off the
bench to score five points, including a
close the period with the Chargers on top, 10-5.
Holley had two more three-pointers
points overall as Central stretched its advantage
to 12 at the half,
Sequoyah went to an all-out stall in the third
period with Central scoring the
four points to lead, 30-16.
The Chiefs started their final-period push
a three-pointer, but the Chargers responded with
a 10-2 run that included six points from
Holley finished with 17 points and Ward 10.
