Lewis Cass grapplers remain unbeaten

Logan Super Six downsized to Super Three due to weather.

Douglass scored 16 in the contest to lead the Comets. Alex Howdeshell had four, Brayton Jellison added three and Jake Kingery and Graham Rentschler chipped in two apiece.

Brandon Dillon led the Cougars (4-2) with 18 points. Jarin Bush scored 11, Justin Willoughby had seven and Seth Eldridge added five.

The Comets went scoreless in the second quarter and trailed 24-9 at the half. They outscored the Cougars 13-7 in the third quarter to cut the lead to 31-22 but were outscored 12-5 in the fourth.

“I thought defensively and really with the game plan in particular we did exactly what we wanted to do,” Howell said. “We made Bush and Dillon fight for every basket they made and attempted. We did a nice job of doubling them. We outscored them 13-7 in the third quarter and you could tell they started to get a little frustrated. We played the way we wanted to play and did a good job.

“It was just one of those games where I was pretty pleased with the shots we got, they just didn’t fall. That may have to do with our effort defensively. Defensively we did a good job and it got us tired legs. We got open looks and didn’t convert.”

The Comets next travel to Frontier next Saturday to open Midwest Conference play.

S. Newton 53, Pioneer 49

Pioneer, like Caston, was hoping to return to the hardwood as soon as possible after a tough loss the night before. But the Panthers’ home opener against North Miami was snowed out Saturday night.

On Friday the Panthers dropped their MWC opener at South Newton.

The Panthers (0-4 overall) led 23-21 at halftime, but Skylar Sanders scored 15 of his game-high 28 points in the third quarter to lead the Rebels (1-2) to the win on their home floor.

Jarrett Hammel added 16 points for the more veteran Rebels squad, which picked up its first win in MWC play in four seasons.
