[ad_1]

WILMINGTON — In a defensive thriller at Fred Summers Court, Wilmington held on to defeat Clinton-Massie Friday night, 38-37.

“That’s what you want the county rivalry to be,” Clinton-Massie head coach Steve Graves said. “Fun and well played on both sides.”

The win puts the Hurricane 3-1 on the season and sets them up for another straight game as Washington Senior heads to Fred Summers Court on Saturday night. Wilmington is 2-0 in the American Division.

“It’s one of our best games against them in a long time,” WHS head coach Jermaine Isaac said. “I am happy for our children.

“And everything they (Clinton-Massie) have in this community…our thoughts and prayers are with them.”

Clinton-Massie drops to 0-2 in the division, 2-3 overall. The Falcons have now lost 32 straight games in the American Division, dating back to a 53-49 win over Batavia on Feb. 8, 2019.

“They’re doing a really good job pressuring basketball,” Graves said. “We actually executed our game plan pretty well and gave them a few fits.”

Mike Brown Jr. scored 16 points and grabbed six rebounds for WHS while Shane Griffith added 13 points.

Sawyer Conrad led CMHS in scoring with nine points. Gabe Muterspaw had six rebounds.

The Falcons made their first five shots and led 11-2, then missed the next nine field goal attempts. Brown rallied the Hurricane with seven points in the first quarter.

“Massie was a little better than our kids thought,” Isaac said. “We’ve been telling them all week that they (Clinton-Massie) are better than you remember.”

A field goal from Griffith tied it at 11 early in the second, but Jerry Trout responded with a three for the Falcons. Brown had a 10-2 WHS run and a 21-16 lead late in the second quarter.

Massie got back there and regained the upper hand early in the third on a three-point shot from Ryan Dillion, 24-22.

Griffith made two baskets a minute apart to definitively put WHS ahead at 26-24. But the Hurricane never led by more than four (33-29) and the teams were tied (33-33) midway through the fourth.

The Falcons scored four straight runs, but the run ended when Jose Morales had a steal that led to Griffith’s three-pointer at 2:33. Connor Stulz had a stickback at 1:45 against Massie at 36-35. Brown then made two free throws with 29.2 seconds left, 38-35.

Conrad battled his way to a field goal, 38-37, with 1.7 seconds left, but couldn’t finish the game at three points the old fashioned way.
