Whiteford takes over lead in TCC with road win at Sand Creek

By DOUG DONNELLY

SAND CREEK – The Bobcats took over the top rung on the TCC ladder Thursday with a convincing 63-42 win at Sand Creek.

The Aggies are the defending TCC champs and were undefeated in league play coming into the contest. Thomas Eitniear got the Bobcats going with 11 points in the first quarter, leading the Bobcats to a 17-5 lead after eight minutes.

Antonio DiTerlizzi scored on an offensive rebound and Cameron Iott scored on a driving layup to give the Bobcats a 23-10 lead midway through the second quarter before the Aggies came back on three straight Noah Hague buckets to close it to five points at 23-18.

However, two Jared Fink free throws, an Eitniear layup and a buzzer-beater by Eitniear to close the first half gave the Bobcats a 35-21 halftime lead.

Eitniear beat the buzzer again to close the third quarter and the Aggies never threatened the rest of the way. He finished with 19 points and DiTerlizzi 14. Jared Fink put in 11 points and Iott eight.

DiTerlizzi had seven assists and nine rebounds for the Bobcats.

Hague was the only Aggie in double figures. He tied Eitniear for game-scoring honors with 19 points.

The Bobcats are 7-2 overall and 5-0 in the TCC, a game up on Sand Creek (6-3, 4-1 in TCC) and Summerfield, who lost for the first time, 68-64, to Whitmore Lake.

The victory was career win No. 499 for Bobcat coach John Rice.

Whiteford is back in action Tuesday when the Bobcats travel to Summerfield to take on the Bulldogs.
