The loss puts the S-T overall mark at 6-20 and 0-4 in district play.
“We played really well for most of the game. We struggled to make some shots as well with free-throws. We had opportunities to win and the guys never gave up,” said head coach Darrell Hesseltine.
The S-T ‘Cats worked well over the first two quarters and led 17-12 at the end of the first. They took a 25-24 advantage into halftime.
Someone must have left a door open at the start of the third quarter as the S-T shooting turned ice-cold. The home tem managed just two points in the third, giving the visiting Bobcats a chance to gain the lead and they went up by 36-27 by the end of the third period. The S-T boys fought back and narrowed the gap to five by the end of the contest.
The S-T Bobcats were led by 16 points from Gavin Vandever. Five three-pointers and one free throw got Vandever his 16 tallies. Conner McCarn added 15 points in the loss. Chris Patrova provided six and Cody Chambers finished with four.
