Chester Boys Basketball losses to Glen Mills

Terry Thomas Report

Chester losses another close one 48-51 at the home of the Glen Mills Battlin' Bulls. With the loss, the Clippers fall to 13-8 and 7-3 in league play which drops them to 2nd place depending on the outcome of tonight's Penn Wood/Academy Park contest. If Penn Wood wins, the Patriots would finish in 1st place. However, if Academy Park wins, there would be tri-champions with Chester, Glen Mills and Penn Wood in that each would have three league losses. The Clippers appeared to be on target in the 1st quarter knocking down two treys and jumping out to a 12-9 lead. However in the 2nd quarter while they continued to knock down shots they gave up too many easy baskets which results in a tie ball game at the half. Chester 24, Glen Mills 24. Junior Marquis Collins led the way in the first half scoring 10 of his team high 18 points. With only playing 2:19 of the first half due to foul trouble, Maurice Henry produced all 6 of his points and Chester's only points in the 3rd quarter as the Clippers now trailed 30-35 entering the final quarter. Henry would pickup his 4th foul in the 3rd before fouling out in the 4th along with his teammate 6'7" junior Juanir Moore. A trey from Deshawn Hinson followed by a putback by Jamar Sudan would spark a Chester run that ended with a layup by Stanley Davis that tied the game at 45 with 1:24 remaining. On Glen Mills next possession, they connected on 1 first of two free throws but was able to haul in the rebound to score and go up by three 48-45. The Clippers responded on their next possession with an old fashioned And-One by Marquis Collins to tie the game at 48 with 51 seconds remaining. With Chester's big men on the bench, the Battlin' Bulls went to their big men who scored to give them the lead. After a missed Chester shot, the Bulls rebounded the and connect on 1 of 2 free throws for a 51-48 lead with 4 seconds remaining. Having only 4 teams fouls at this point in the second half, Glen Mills was able to foul and run out the clock.

The Clippers will travel to Roselle, NJ on Saturday to take on the St. Anthony Friars in the Primetime Shootout. Tip-off is scheduled for 2:30 p.m.
