GC Hoops: Cayuga holds off Kerens boys 65-58

LadyCats perfect in district play at 6-0

(Continued)

BETHEL —

The Wildcats cruised for three quarters, making the contest against the ninth-ranked Bobcats look like it wouldn’t be much of a contest.

The Wildcats scored 18 points in the first quarter, almost equaling the 19 points that Kerens scored in the first half.

The Wildcats held a 17-point advantage at the half, an edge that they held on to throughout the third quarter.

Preston Anderson led Cayuga with 25 points, despite an off-night shooting. Anderson shot a respectable 50 percent from two-point range, but was 3-of-10 from behind the arc.

He finished with seven rebounds and five blocks.

Despite foul trouble — he fouled out late in the fourth quarter — Shofner finished with 19 points and six rebounds. Chandler Rigdon had nine points for Cayuga.

Betts had 25 to lead Kerens, and also finished with a game-high 15 rebound, while Thomas had 15 and nine rebounds. Townsel added seven.

Cayuga (18-6, 4-0) travels to Dawson Friday to end the first round of district play.
