Lye hangs 17 on the Jags

The Clark Cougars varsity basketball teams won one but lost one to the Johnson Jaguars.  The girls played first and what looked to be a runaway win to the 12-1 Jags quickly became a contest in the 2nd half.  Down 21-32 at the half, the Coogs cut the Jags lead to 4 after three quarters.  In the 4th, with :50 seconds left in the game, the Cougars tied it at 46 but lost on a last second layup by Johnson.  The final score: Clark 46-Johnson 48.

The boys lead the entire game, including an exciting 4-8 lead after one quarter of play.  Johnson, who played possession ball and shot only 5 times in the 8:00 minute first quarter, fell behind 10-21 at the half.  In the 2nd half, the Jags showed signs of life, cutting the Cougars lead to 5 at one point but Clark turned up the pace on both offense and defense with the result being a 54-37 win.
