Boys have good, almost great week

Posted: Monday, Dec 24th, 2012

Jesse Fix went high to score two against Marshfield.

The CGHS Lions boysí team earned its best win of the season last week, and if it hadnít been for some ice-cold shooting, the next night they would have put an even bigger victory under their belt. At home on Friday night, the Lions throttled a good Philomath team and won 46-40 in a game that wasnít as close as the final score. The next night the CG boys led Marist in Eugene 28-27 at the end of the third quarter, but shooting woes doomed the Grovers to a five-point loss.

The Lions are now 5-4 headed into this weekend, when they are hosting a four-team Les Schwab/State Farm Holiday Tournament with Ontario, Sutherlin and Douglas.

The CG boys picked up their fourth win last Tuesday, Dec. 18 when they hosted Marshfield. The 5A Pirates were winless on the season, and the Lions made sure they remained that way with a dominating 63-42 victory.

Junior Mason Mueller led the Groversí inside game with 21 points. He was followed in the scoring column by Jordan Yoss and Brad Miller with 11 each.

At 4-3, the Lions hosted the 3-1 Philomath Warriors, a team that returned a fair number of impact players from last year's team. At CGHS last winter in the play-in game, the Warriors smothered the Lions, 73-43. It was a whole different story last week. At halftime Cottage Grove held a commanding 28-13 lead, and by the fourth quarter, the Grovers led 40-24 with just under five minutes to play. The Warriors went on a 16-6 run the rest of the game, but the outcome was never really in doubt. Yoss led the way with 14, and Miller added 11 points.
