Semifinal round brings top notch competition

MARLOW — While there was plenty of great basketball going on Saturday night in the Stephens County Throwback Tournament semifinal round, there was almost a throwdown as well.

When the Red Squad and Shooting Chickens met one another, it was a tense affair with physical play setting the tone.

Even though the Chickens won the game and a berth in the finals by a score of 54-51, the fireworks came with less than a minute to go.

After a hard foul occurred on a rebound, both benches cleared with players having to be separated. Tournament officials then threatened to suspend the rest of the tournament, but ultimately cooler heads prevailed.

There was little doubt who was in control from the opening tip, as the Shooting Chickens led wire-to-wire in the contest.

At the end of the first it was an 18-12 advantage for the SC, before the Red Squad trimmed the lead to four at the half at 30-26.

With 45 seconds remaining in the third quarter, the Red Squad came within two points at 41-39, but couldn’t close the gap, getting to within one at 1:21 in the fourth.

Daniel McCoy scored 22 points for the Red Squad, with Eric Brownlee adding 14 points.

Jay Powell led the Shooting Chickens with 23 points, followed by Kevin McCarley with 12 points.

Semifinals

Cyclones 54, Red Squad 46

After an emotionally draining contest against the Screaming Chickens, the Cyclones proved to be too much for the Red Squad in their second semifinal contest.

A 22-5 first quarter gave the Cyclones a huge advantage that was never in question, as they cruised to a 54-46 victory.

The Cyclones led 34-19 at the halftime break, before keeping a comfortable lead at 50-35 going into the third quarter.

Josh Elix stole the show, putting in 28 points for the Cyclones to lead all scorers in the contest. Jesse Barton also turned in a solid game with 12 points for the Cyclones.

On the Red Squad it was Daniel McCoy leading the way with 17 points followed by Eric Brownlee with 16 points.

Quarterfinals

Cyclones 48, Back 2 The Future 41

It was always going to be a tough task for the Back 2 The Future squad to win a consecutive game following an overtime victory.

Despite their best efforts, it wasn’t enough though as the Cyclones came away with a seven point victory to reach the semifinals.

With 4:15 left in the first it was a three point game at 8-5 in favor of the Cyclones, but things wouldn’t get better for B2F.

At the end of the first, it was the Cyclones leading 12-5, before taking a 22-16 lead into the halftime break.

B2F got within four points at the end of the third quarter at 35-31, but a strong fourth quarter run gave the Cyclones the win.

Josh Elix led the way with 22 points for the Cyclones, followed by Jesse Barton with 12 points.

Paul Powers led B2F with 11 points followed by Adam Gilmore with eight points.
