CCS Warriors’ upset bid falls short in OT, 74-70

STAFF REPORTS

WILLOW PARK – David almost slew Goliath.

Playing a team that had easily defeated it twice in non-district play, Community Christian School thought they had upset Odessa Latter Rain Christian School when the Warriors stole the ball and put up a layup as time expired.

But officials ruled a traveling violation as the scored remained 63-63 and went into overtime.

However, heavily-favored Latter Rain outscored CCS 11-7 in the overtime period to escape with a 74-70 win Thursday night at Trinity Christian Academy in the state quarterfinals.

“You always hate to end the season with a loss, but our kids played like Warriors (Thursday) night,” CCS head coach Doug Jefferson said. “The boys played their hearts out.

“If one or two things would have gone our way we would be headed to the state semifinals.”

The Warriors fell behind early but ended up tying the game and taking the lead in the fourth quarter. CCS had trailed by as much as 13 points at one point in the game. But Latter Rain regained the lead before the contest was tied again in the fourth period to set up the extra session.

“Our boys never gave up,” Jefferson said. “It was incredible to go to overtime with such a tough team, and I think because we played from behind for most of the game it caught up to us in the overtime period.”

Isaiah Brazeal led the Warriors with a team-high 26 points while pulling down 19 rebounds, including 11 offensive boards. He also had a team-high seven blocked shots, six steals and eight assists.

Samuel Brazeal also recorded 19 rebounds while scoring 13 points and four assists. He also had three blocked shots.

Bradley Norman finished with 20 points while grabbing five rebounds and a pair of steals.

Also scoring for the Warriors were Joby Bradshaw with nine points and Noah Dowdy with two.

LRC led 16-10 after the first quarter and 38-32 at the half. Both team scored 14 points in the third period as CCS trailed 46-42 as the game moved to the fourth quarter.

“It was a great game, and I was so happy with how many fans we had at the game to support the boys,” Jefferson said. “It was a ‘David vs. Goliath’ situation, but our boys fought hard and gave extreme effort until the very end. I am so proud of them.”

CCS    10  18 14      21   7 –    70

LRCS  16  16 14      17  11 –    74

CCS – Isaiah Brazeal 26, Bradley Norman 20, Samuel Brazeal 13, Joby Bradshaw 9, Noah Dowdy 2.

    "Physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come... Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity." – 1 Timothy 4:6 and 12.
