Report by Terry Thomas

The return to the Clip Joint was just what the Clippers needed as they evened their record at 2-2 with a 63-52 victory over the visiting William Penn York Bearcats (4-3) on Saturday evening. The week layoff was evident early in the opening quarter as the Clippers fell behind 5-11. The Clippers got some wind under their sails and outscored the Bearcats 12-5 to tie the game at 17 at the end of the period. Chester used a balanced attack with five players in the scoring column with senior Stanley Davis leading the way with 5 of his 9 points. Chester continued their defensive pressure into the 2nd quarter limiting York to 10 points to take a 30-27 lead into the intermission. Seniors Marquis Collins and Jahmi Bailey-Green led the way with 6 and 4 points respectively in the 2nd quarter. Junior Ahrod Carter got hot off the bench in the 3rd quarter draining 8 of his 14 points including two treys and junior forward Jamar Sudan contributed 4 points in the paint as the Clippers pushed their margin to 7 points at the end of the 3rd. Chester - 44, York - 37. The Clippers began to look for Collins in the final period and he came through with 7 of his team high 15 points as Chester captured another win at home.

Collins finished the contest with a double-double as he hauled in 10 rebounds to go along with his 15 points. He also contributed 3 assists and 2 blocked shots. Khaleeq Campbell added 8 points, Jumar and Jahmi finished with 7 and 6 points respectively. Junior Jordan Camper added 4 points and 6 rebounds to the stat sheet.
