The Cape Central boys junior varsity basketball team never gave the Jackson Indians a chance to gain any momentum Tuesday at home, taking a 58-36 victory over their rivals. The win improved CHS to 8-2 on the season.
The Tigers outscored the Indians in all four quarters en route to the 22 point victory. After leading 16-11 after one quarter, Cape Central increased their advantage to 34-21 at halftime. Cam Harris scored 14 first half points, and Elijah Wigfall had six to pace Central.
It was more of the same in the second half. The Tigers’ defense got very stingy in the third quarter, allowing Jackson to score just six points. Meanwhile Jacob Gary scored all seven of his points in the third, and Harris added five, making the CHS lead, 46-27 heading into the fourth quarter.
Ten different Tigers scored in the contest, led by Harris with 19 points. He did all his scoring in the first three quarters. Gary and Kevin Robinson each netted seven points, while Wigfall tallied six points. Rudy Hamilton chipped in with five points, and Cameron Williams added four markers. Rounding out the scoring was Maurice Boyd (3 points), Clayton McClard (3 points), Rashard Townsend (2 points), and Henry Brown (2 points).
Tomorrow, the team will look to continue their winning ways with a home contest against Sikeston. Game time is scheduled for 6:00 p.m.
