The Clippers in a game with Council Rock North won the District 1 Championship last night at Villanova University. Chester won 66 to 43 in a hard fought game from Council Rock. Chester simply wore Council Rock out in the end.
Chester had a 1 point lead in the first quarter by 18-17 in a spirited game with Council Rock. In the second quarter, Chester’s lead would increase by only 3 points, 30-27 with lots of scrambling for the ball. After half-time, Chester picked up the pace a little bit more but the game was close with plenty of spills for the ball. In the third quarter, Chester stepped their game up with a 17 points lead, 55-38. I was looking for a 20 points lead but had to settle for the 17 points. I was just not happy until there was a comfortable lead although this was a pretty good spread in points. In the fourth quarter, the Clippers blew their 17 points lead down to 12 points, going to 55-43. Chester inched back up 60-43 with minutes to go in the game. Fans hoped that Chester would spread the floor out so Council Rock would come and get them as the clock ran out. Fans didn’t want Chester to lose anymore leads to end the game. Final Score Chester 66 to 43.
Congratulations to the Chester Boys Clippers Basketball team. Great Job! Great season! And still more to come on the way to the state championship, Chester will play Dallastown next Saturday in Norristown.
