Trinity Lutheran’s first-half defense in Saturday’s boys basketball game stymied Class 2A No. 7 Clarksville.
The visiting Generals, however, opened the second half on a 10-2 run, and later strung together seven straight points in the fourth quarter to pull out a 59-44 win.
“I think (Clarksville) came out in the third quarter with a different kind of intensity, and we had some breakdowns on defense, didn’t get out on their good shooters and didn’t execute well enough in the second half,” Cougars coach Aaron Rudzinski said.
The Generals shot 10 for 15 from the field in the third quarter in outscoring the Cougars 21-12.
