Masters' heroics annul Manning's FC tops M-C


Fri, Jan 24th, 2014
Posted in All Sports

It was a brilliant three minutes of play. With his team trailing Fillmore Central 53-44, Mabel-Canton senior G Noah Manning hit three three-pointers (a couple from way out there) and added a three-point play in about 180 seconds. The buckets were all of a 12-2 M-C run, one that put the Cougars up 56-55 with 1:20 left.

Manning was fixing to be the hero. But after missing the front end of a one-and-one, after authoring a steal, but then losing the ball out-of-bounds, Manning’s hero crown was stolen away by Falcon PG Logan Masters.

With under 0:20 to play, Masters did what he’d done all game long. He drove the lane and converted a lay-up to put FC back in front. The bucket gave him a career-high 20 points.

With 0:14 left, the Cougars didn’t call timeout. They brought the ball up court and had two shots at the win, a Hunter Johnson elbow-jumper, and then a Donnie Lind lefty lay-up put back, but both were too strong. Falcon Nick Powell secured the rebound, time expired, and FC eked out a sectional victory, 57-56. It was a game that saw M-C jump out early (22-10). FC then made its final nine baskets of the first half for a 20-6 run and a 30-28 halftime lead. M-C led 42-39 in the second half before FC spurted again (14-2) to set up Manning’s run, and then Masters’ game-winner.

Noah finished with a career best 20 points (4-5 three’s) and 7 rebounds. Ward (11 pts, 6 rebs) and Johnson (11 pts, 5 rebs) also reached double figures. Logan’s mastery (8-11 FG’s, 4-4 FT’s, 20 pts) led FC. Nick Powell, who averaged 27.3 PPG over his previous four games, was limited to ‘just’ 16 and 11 rebounds. He was efficient (7-9 FG’s). The smaller Cougars won the battle on the glass (32 to 25), particularly the o-boards (19 to 7). They were also 7 of 15 3’s to FC’s 0-5. But FC’s size allowed them to be much more efficient overall offensively, 22-39 FG’s (56%) to M-C’s 22-57 (39%). The win moves FC to 7-7 on the season (4-6 in league). M-C is also .500 (8-8). They are 7-3 in the SEC East (3rd place behind SG and Lanesboro).

Lions Overwhelm Burros, Seize Control of SEC

It was the Lanesboro’s boys’ best shot at sharing, or out-right winning, the SEC title. Beat Spring Grove, split the season series, force a tie atop the league (in the loss column), and then see where the cards fall as the season evolves. But the Lions were too much for Lanesboro for a second time this .....
