Comets complete weekend sweep with win over FC

Kings go over century mark in win over Bulldogs.


Offenberger continued to cause damage in the fourth, connecting again from outside. He finished with a team-high 19 points. Jellison followed with 12 points and nine rebounds.

The Comets shot 45 percent from the field, including 47 from three-point range.

“I thought we had great energy and focus this morning at the walk-through,” said Caston coach J.R. Howell. “We executed well the last three quarters, and I’m proud of how hard we played.”

The Comets (9-6), who have won five of six, travel to Argos on Friday.

Cass 109, Clinton C. 74

The Kings had six players in double figures as they eclipsed the century mark in Walton en route to their seventh straight win.

Austin Keisling scored 25 to lead Cass (9-2), followed by Ryan Bixler (16), Owen Ohman (15), Blake Hadley (14), Evan Ohman (12) and Jake Martin (11).

The Kings shot 35 for 71 from the field, including 11 of 29 from 3-point range and 26 of 35 from the foul line. They also outrebounded the Bulldogs 38-23.

The Kings led 27-15 after one quarter, 53-33 at the half and 89-54 after three.

“We got up and down the floor and scored a lot of points,” Cass coach Jon Kitchel said. “They handled our press pretty well, that’s why they scored 74. But they had trouble defending us. It was an up and down game with a lot of possessions.”

Jake Burton scored 17 points to lead the Bulldogs (2-10), and Cole Simmons had 13.

Cass hosts Peru Friday.

Rossville 50, Pioneer 34

The Panthers trailed just 18-16 at halftime before the Hornets pulled away in the second half.

“Defensively, I was pretty happy with our first half,” Pioneer coach Austin Cowley said. “In the second half Rossville got some shots to fall. They were cold in the first half. Defensively we did a decent job. Our transition defense hurt us at the end of the first half.”

Zach Mason led the Panthers (1-11) with 12 points. He finished with 30 for the weekend after scoring 18 at Caston Friday.
