If you were a few minutes late arriving to this year’s renewal of the Boys Crosstown Classic, you would have still been right on time, as it took these two teams over five minutes to get the lid off and put any points on the board from either team. Broc Sorgenfrei finally hit a 3-point goal, to which Mason Sepate immediately answered, and the scoring had begun. At the end of the period, it was the Brossart Mustangs who led 7-5. There were four player control fouls registered in the first quarter, three of them from our guys and only one by the Camels.
Campbell County delivered four 3-pointers in the second period, to outscore our Mustangs 21-9, giving them a 26-16 halftime advantage.
The beat went on for the Camels in the third stanza, as they were able to generate 22 points in the frame, Brossart had a productive quarter adding 15 points to our tally, but falling behind by an insurmountable 48-31 deficit. Govan was responsible for 7 of our 15 points, giving him 16 on the night to that point. Govan scored 20 against the Camels a year ago, when the Crosstown was conducted on campus in Claryville.
The two teams liberally exercised their benches in the final 8 minutes, and played rather evenly, with Campbell County improving their advantage by a 14-12 margin. Govan finished the night with 18 points and 14 rebounds for the double-double, leading all scorers in the contest. Aydan Hamilton increased his career total to 1,015, scoring 17 of them in this bout. Mason Sepate added 12 for the Mustangs, while Keegan Hill and Eric Davie put 11 each in the book.
David Govan received Player of the Game honors, while Aydan Hamilton received that distinction for the Camels.
With the win the Camels will continue on their way, spending the holidays at the Nicholas County Holiday Classic, while our Mustangs will now more closely focus on the 10th Region All “A” Classic by competing in the Mike Swauger Classic prior to Christmas, and head to the Henry County Tournament following the holiday.
