Katz even the score with Flippin Bobcats

Wednesday, November 25, 2009

The Melbourne Bearkatz paid back Flippin for a loss earlier in the season by knocking off the Bobcats 65-51 Nov. 17 at The Arena in Melbourne.

Flippin had gave the Katz their only loss to date in the Panther Classic in Norfork during the season's opening weekend.

In the rematch, Melbourne led 17-5 after one, 33-25 at intermission and 50-31 after three periods of play.

Spencer Caraway, just a couple of days after he dropped a school-record 52 points on Cotter, led the Bearkatz against Flippin with a 21-point, 15-rebound, double-double.

Kody Caraway followed with 12 points, while Derek Baird hit for 10.

In girls' action, the Lady Bobcats topped Melbourne 54-49. Kenzi Gillihan paced Melbourne with 15 points, while Maggie Jo Cooper added 14 points.
