CCA slips past CPU on the road

Another win for the Creek Boys

CENTER POINT– Coach Brandon Clubb and his Clear Creek Amana (CCA) varsity Clippers earned a hard-fought win Friday, Jan. 19, on the road as they upset the Stormin’ Pointers of Center Point-Urbana (CPU) 52-50 in the Pointers’ kennel in Center Point. The win followed a Tuesday, Jan. 16, home win over Benton Community and boosted the Creek Boys to a 4-9 showing while dipping the Pointers to 7-7.
The Creek Boys stayed just ahead of their hosts throughout the contest, taking the first period 12-9, and leading 23-21 at halftime. CCA was up 41-38 going into the final period. The game was tied 50-50 when Darius Moore was fouled on his way to the basket with one second remaining, according to Coach Clubb, who said Moore, “hit both ends of the one-and-one. (A) CPU half-court three (point shot) missed just left at the buzzer.”
Moore led the Clippers with 15 points, six rebounds and three assists, while T.J. Bollers had a 10-point night and six boards for CCA.
