Cascade Storms By Crook County In Win

By Jeremy McDonald

TURNER, Ore.– Crook County brought it Tuesday night and gave Cascade that adversity that they needed going into their non-league finale against Gladstone on Friday night on the road.  The Cowboys had led 13-6 early and had rally back from 33-24 down to take a 39-36 lead late into the third quarter as the full-strength Central Oregon team looks for more momentum themselves going into Tri-Valley Conference play next week.

But the Cougars dug deep, found that gear to once more against the adversity thrown their way to pull away from Crook County 63-42.  Using a crazy 27-3 run to close out the game stemming from their defense that fed right into their offense to perfection.

“Crook County is our test to prove that we can beat these other teams like Philomath and Baker, we did that and did our best,” Anthony Best said of the win.  “Thursday we’re on the road, so we have to be prepared and never underestimate any team that we play.”

Best finished with 17 points and Rogue Newton added another ten for the Cougars.  Cameron Carr led the Cowboys with 11 points and three three-pointers.  Crook County hit ten three-pointers as the Cowboys wrap up their non-league schedule at home versus Sweet Home Friday.
