Campbell County had the lead for most of the game tonight as they came out hot grabbing a 9-2 lead in the opening minutes of the game. Montgomery County would play a good game of catch up the whole game, as they would pull within 4 points at the end of the first quarter.
Midway through the second quarter the camels would find themselves down, but would close out the half with a surge, leading by 3 at the break.
The Indians would continue to keep it close in the third quarter, but the camels would match their points, and were leading by 4 points after three quarters.
The opening two minutes of the fourth quarter would be hard to watch as the Indians would go on a large run and take a four point lead, but the Camels would weather the storm and regain their composer. They would fight their way back, and pull themselves ahead by 4 points. From that point both teams had reached the double bonus, so the camels just had to make their foul shots, and they did, giving them the 7 point victory.
This win snaps a 13 year state tournament drought, and is just the third time they are headed to the state tournament in the last 60 years.
They will play Johnson Central on Wednesday March 19th at 8:00pm. We will be releasing information regarding tickets as it becomes available.
