|Clippers before the game in a packed Chester High School Gym (dsbpix)|
What’s up McCaskey? You guys came out like something was gonna happen. Clippers faced a heavy full on first quarter from McCaskey only pulling off a one point lead in the first quarter. McCaskey was aggressive. They came to play and they were going to give the game their best shot. But inevitably, as in all good attempts against the Clippers, the challenge was over by the second quarter and Clipper led at half-time by a 25 points lead, 49 to 24. The third quarter Clippers held their lead by 64 to 40. Finally McCaskey fell to Chester 83 to 57 in the last quarter.
The 1983 and 1989 State Championship teams were honored before the game.
Finally basketball season, I love this game. It’s on! Hey, you might as well be good at something. Clippers, these guys give you hope.
JV won by 1 point: CHS 67 to McCaskey 66
