FREDERICKTOWN — For three quarters, the nonconference boys basketball game between the Fredericktown Freddies and the Clear Fork Colts was a classic.
Then it all went south for the Freddies.
The team went 3-for-11 in shooting in the fourth period. Meanwhile, Clear Fork shot 5-for-6, scoring on easy layups and wide-open looks to secure a 65-53 victory in Fredericktown.
“We couldn’t keep the ball in front of us,” said Fredericktown head coach Mark DeLaney. “They had so many easy shots to the basket.”
Fredericktown senior Ryan Logan shined once again, leading both teams with 33 points and three blocks. He scored most of his points in the paint despite being harassed all night by three Clear Fork defenders.
“Ryan had a great night. He finished strong,” said DeLaney. “But we’ve had problems getting him the ball. Sometimes we hold on to it too long, which creates turnovers.”
Logan scored all 11 Fredericktown points in the first period. Fredericktown gave up the lead early in the first, and would regain the lead one more time in the game. That happened in the opening minutes of the third quarter, following two consecutive baskets by Logan on passes from Austin Hathaway and Curtis Carpenter.
