Pirates ease past Comets in double overtime

SOC boys basketball

CENTRAL POINT

-- For a team that was outrebounded 45-27, made just 9 of 20 free throws and was 1-of-17 from the 3-point line, the Crater Comets didn't fare too badly on Friday night.

The Comets took visiting Marshfield to double overtime before dropping a 58-48 non-conference decision.

We're a young team and so we're happy to get extra time on the court, Crater coach Matt Meunier said, alluding to the two overtime periods. We had the opportunity to work on some situations in a pressure-packed game.

If we could have shot the ball a little better then we would have come away with the win.

Todd Lewis, a 6-foot-4 senior, had a pair of put-back baskets and went 3-for-3 from the free-throw line to fuel Marshfield in the second overtime, when the Pirates went on a 16-6 run to win going away.

Lewis finished with 13 points. Jon Vinyard had 14 to pace the Pirates.

Josh Jones registered 13 points and six rebounds to lead the Comets, who lost their first game following a pair of victories. Andy Haas added 14 points.

The big story was that they had 17 second-chance points, Meunier said. Marshfield was more physical than us.
