The CC 8th Grade Boys traveled to Monticello on Monday night to take on Roosevelt (Twin Lakes). After falling behind 7-0 to start the game the Knights played pretty well the rest of the 1st half and went into halftime trailing 20-14.

Roosevelt outscored the Knights 14-0 in the 3rd quarter and continued on to a convincing 40-22 win. It was another rough shooting night for CC going just 9-43 from the field (21%) and unfortunately ended the game with more turnovers (23) than points (22). Kolton Minnich led the Knights with 6 points and 7 rebounds. He was followed by Joey Metzger who finished with 4 points. In the B team game, CC jumped out to a huge 21-4 1st quarter lead.
