Chester Boys Basketball suffers first loss to Math Civic Science Charter

Report by Terry Thomas

Chester - 53, Math-Civic-Science Charter - 65

Chester (4-1) suffers its first loss of the season at the hands of the MCS Mighty Elephants 53-65 in the nightcap of the inaugural Rondae Hollis-Jefferson Classic. The Clippers took control 18-8 in the first quarter led by senior Jordan Camper with 6 of his team high 17 points. With MCS getting hot in the 2nd quarter, Chester was able to spread 13 points among 6 different plays to hold off the Elephants and take a 31-26 lead into intermission. For the first time this season the Clippers were not hitting their mark in the 3rd quarter scoring less than 20 points. With junior Brian Randolph III scoring 8 of career high 12 points in the period, Chester was able to stay close trailing by one 41-42 at the end of the quarter. Chester continued to slip at both ends of the floor and if not for the 7 points scored by Camper they would have not reached double digits for the first time this season. Senior dominated MCS knocked down 10 of 12 free throws in the final quarter to secure the win.

Jordan Camper finished the night with another double-double bring down 10 rebounds to go along with his 17 points. He also rejected 5 shots to walk away with the team MVP honors for the night. While he had an off night offensively scoring just 6 points, senior Jamar Sudan recorded his fifth double digit rebounding night as he led the Clippers with 12 boards. Jah'meir Springfield came off the bench to record 7 points. Senior Ahrod Carter and junior Rahmaad DeJarnette each contribued 4 points with sophomore Jaimhy Evans completed the scoring with 3 points. Chester continued to share the ball recording 12 assists on 19 made baskets.

Chester will return to action on Thursday, December 29th when they take on the Abington Ghost in the 12th Annual Pete Nelson Classic on the campus of Widener University. Tipoff is slated for 8:00 p.m.

Merry Christmas !
