Crater fends off comeback by North Bend

CENTRAL POINT — What seemed like a safe Crater lead nearly dissipated in the second half behind a significant North Bend rally on Tuesday in a nonconference boys basketball game.

But the Comets, who led 37-20 at the half, did just enough in the end to hold on for a 62-57 victory over the Bulldogs.

"We played great defense, we were rebounding and, because of that, we were getting a lot of easy baskets," said Crater coach Troy McNichols of his team's first-half onslaught. "For some reason we decided we wouldn't do that again in the second half. We came out flat and stopped doing what we had been doing to get that lead."

The Comets (3-2) led 20-6 after the first quarter and were still up by double digits (51-38) entering the fourth quarter.

That's when the Bulldogs made things interesting.

North Bend whittled its deficit down to two points with about three minutes to play before Crater righted the ship and held on.

"We had a horrible time rebounding and a horrible time stopping penetration in the fourth quarter," said McNichols. "We challenged them at halftime to not come out and relax and think they got it won already because North Bend is good team."

Senior Drew Runberg led the Comets with 19 points and 12 rebounds, while Josh Lokeno had 12 points and seven assists and Nick Brothers scored 11 points. Travis Robbins and Bryce Peila led Crater on the defensive end with five steals apiece.
