(Elk Horn) Both teams came into Tuesday night's matchup with identical records and the game played out the way it looked on paper, very close.
Exira-EHK and CAM traded leads several times throughout the game with Exira-EHK holding the lead for most of the second half. With CAM down by four mid-way through the fourth quarter the Cougars partway through the fourth quarter the Cougars took the lead for good on consecutive three pointers by junior Michael Holste. Holste's two straight triples put the Cougars on top by two and the team was able to take care of the ball and make just enough free throws down the stretch to secure their third victory.
Trevor McKee shot 7/10 from the free throw line in the second half and led all scorers with 14. Michael Holste (13) and Connor Bell (11) each made three three pointers and finished in double figures. Exira-EHK's leading scorer was Cole Anderson who came in averaging 20 points per game and had 10 in the first half but was held to 13 for the game.
