Hawks hand Dogs 38-34 OT loss
CAMDENS DELTON BRADFORD GOES inside for two of his six points in Fridays loss to visiting and fourth-ranked Westwood.
When Westwood came out in a 2-3 zone and stayed in that defensive scheme throughout the night, Camden head coach Ron McKie must have felt like a kid who found a leftover gift from Santa behind the tree.For a CHS squad which has hits its share of problems versus man-to-man pressure defense, the Redhawks’ zone allowed the hosts Bulldogs to control the pace of Friday’s Region 4-AAA contest played on the Michael G. Culp Court. In the end, however, it was the fourth-ranked visitors which played the waiting game to perfection and came away with a 38-34 overtime win.The setback left the Dogs with a 1-3 conference record and a 4-4 overall mark. The guests, which did not take their first lead until there were 43.2 seconds left in overtime, improved to 7-2 overall and 1-0 in league play.The Dogs had the chance to put the game away in regulation after gaining control of the ball with 2:34 left in the four quarter of a game which was knotted at 32.
