Chester Boys Basketball loses to Imhotep

Chester - 54, Imhotep - 67

Report by Terry Thomas

Chester (2-4) lets another one slip through their hands as they lose for the fourth time this season 67-54 to the Imhotep Panthers (7-2). Senior Khaleeq Campbell and junior Jamar Sudan led the way in the opening period with 6 points apiece and senior Marquis Collins added 5 as the Clippers held a 19-16 lead after the 1st quarter. Chester allows scoring opportunities to slip through their hands with unforced turnovers in the second period and the Panthers took advantage by running out to a 35-29 lead at the intermission. The Clippers offensive slump continued in the third as they were only able to muster 9 points and Imhotep stretched their lead to 10 points, 48-38 at the end of the period. The Clippers continued to fight in the final period led by Sudan with 6 more of his team high 15 points, Campbell drained his fourth trey of the night enroute to his 13 points and reserve Dymon Colbert came off the bench to score 4 points. Marquis Collins knocked down his second trey of the night for his 8th points but it was now enough to close the gap and the Clippers were once again on the short end of the score.

Chester will return to action on Wednesday evening for a 7:00 tipoff against Downingtown West as the Pete/Jameer Nelson Holiday Classic continues on the campus of Widener University.
