Cape Central Tigers Rip Through Farmington, Remain Undefeated

The Cape Central Tigers stay perfect on the season after they use an offensive explosion to knock off Farmington 89-57.

The Cape Central Boys Varsity Basketball team only had one game this week, but they made the most of it as the Tigers shredded the Farmington Knights 89-57 in Farmington on Friday. The offensive explosion marked their seventh consecutive win and kept their record perfect for the season.

The Tigers jumped out to a 23-12 lead in the first quarter, thanks in large part to a huge 12-point effort from Cameron Williams. The entire offense was clicking in this one, including Marquel Murray, who had big three-pointer and five points in the frame.

Things wouldn’t get any easier for the Knights in the second quarter. They could only scrape up eight points and Central took advantage, burying them with a 22-spot. Williams was at it again, adding another eight points to his total, and Murray mirrored his first-quarter effort with another five.

That gave the Tigers a healthy 45-20 lead at the break and had them feeling quite comfortable that their undefeated streak would continue.

After the locker room speeches, Farmington was charged up and put forth their best offensive effort in the third quarter with 25 points. That effort was essentially fruitless though, because Central had their best offensive quarter as well and put up 27 to extend their lead. Williams was good for 11 and Latroy McIntosh added another eight.

That made it 72-45 after three and essentially put the game out of reach. It also gave the Tigers the luxury of playing some subs in the fourth quarter, and they still managed an additional 17 and were able to hold the Knights to 12. The 89-57 final marked Central’s biggest offensive performance of the season and bumped their record to 7-0.

Williams was a monster in this one, leading all scorers with 31 points on 14 buckets. He was supported by Murray, who had 16, and McIntosh with his 14. Tyseandre Edwards had 11 and was the only other player in double figures.

The Tigers are rolling this season and will look to keep the line moving in the SE Missourian Christmas Tourney after the holiday break. Cape Central Tigers Rip Through Farmington, Remain Undefeated
