The Clayton Comets and South Garner Titans faced off in a rubber match from their previous matchup (11/21) and things ended up a lot closer than their previous affair. 

Comets find a way to victory

The Clayton Comets defeated the South Garner Titans in their first meeting, 53-34, at home but on the road, on Wednesday night things weren't as easy. The Comets trailed 34-28 and needed a big run in the third quarter to pull out a win in the end. At 3-2 on the season, they're still in good shape in the early going.

2021 forward B.J. Freeman led the way on offense with 21 points and 2020 senior Mason Rusch was right behind him with 16 points. They also got 12 points from senior guard Elijah Sanders.

Clayton outscored the Titans 23-7 in the third quarter to take a 51-41 lead into the final quarter. South Garner hung around and ended up outscoring them 26-22 in the quarter but 10 points from Freeman (6-of-6 from the free-throw line) and five from Rusch played a big part in holding them off.
