Shooting went cold as the North Callaway boys fell 57-49 in consolation semifinal play Thursday night in the Centralia Tournament. After shooting over 50 percent in previous season contests, the Thunderbirds were 20-for-56 from the field against No. 5 seed, Sturgeon. Callaway also struggled from behind the arc, hitting 4-for-17 from three-point range.
Cody Cash led Callawy with 16 points and 4 steals, Matthew Weber had 10 points; Noah Scrogum had 6 points and 10 rebounds, continuing his streak of double-digit rebounding.
Sturgeon had four players in double-digit scoring, led by Logan Flaspohler. The win improved Sturgeon to 1-2.
Coach Matt Miller gave credit to Sturgeon for having a solid game plan and for their shooting. He added that the Thunderbirds’ off-night from the field carried over to other aspects of the game.
“We let it affect us on the other end of the court,” Miller said.
Back to Centralia
The North Callaway Thunderbirds had a short-notice game Saturday night after it was announced Boonville couldn’t play in the Centralia Tournament third-place game against the tournament host. With that, Callaway stepped in to take on the Panthers. Callaway struggled early and often, failing to find their stroke from the field. As a team, the T-Birds shot 25 percent from the field - their worst shooting of the young season - and Centralia dictated the pace en route to a 56-36 win.
Cody Cash had 8 points and 5 steals to lead Callaway and was named to the all-tournament team. Noah Scrogum also had 8 points and added 5 rebounds.
Jackson Wells led Centralia with 15; Kyle Chitwood had 11 and Grant Erisman, 10. The win improves Centralia to 3-2 overall.
North Callaway stands at 1-4 entering Tuesday’s game hosting Van-Far (results not available at press time).
