Bondurant Farrar at Carroll
Bondurant Farrar 67
The Carroll Tigers had a big challenge at home Tuesday night as they took on the second ranked Bondurant Farrar Bluejays and gave them an electrifying game from start to finish.
The Tigers were looking to dethrone the Bluejays from the top of the conference and pick up their fifth win of the season. In the first quarter, the Tigers were holding their own after allowing Bondurant Farrar to get up 7-0. Tanner Gotto made his presence known from the start with seven points along with Bryce Berlau making two shots from beyond the arc. The Tigers tied with the Bluejays going into the second half at 15. The three pointers kept coming from both teams as it was a fight to see who could stay ahead of the other. Berlau got another pair of threes, Gotto fired up two three pointers and the Bluejays got three three-pointers in the second quarter. Colby Collison got two in the quarter with Cole Miller adding another. With a few seconds left in the quarter, the ball game was tied at 30 before Miller took a shot from the top of the arc to give the Bluejays the 33-30 lead going into halftime.
Gotto led the Tigers with 15 first half points led closely behind by Berlau who had 12. The Bluejays came back in the second half with a head of steam and couldn’t be stopped. They would get ahead by 12 points at one point in the third quarter before the Tigers started to get back in the game. Jack White started to get some attention underneath the basket with five points added to his total in the third quarter along with Gotto putting up five points as well. Carroll cut down a 12-point deficit down to six points heading into the fourth quarter at 54-48.
While the Tigers were busy tying up other scoring threats such as Collison and Jaxson Fried, Everett White was busy making shots from all over the court. He had two three pointers in the third quarter and was a bully in the paint for the Bluejays. In the final eight minutes, the Tigers got closer to Bondurant Farrar’s lead and cut down the lead to five points at 65-60. But, with only 8.8 seconds left and Reed Pfaltzgraff nailing four free throws in a row, the Bluejays escaped with a close 67-60 victory.
Gotto led the Tigers with 20 points while Berlau was second with 15 points and White added 10. The loss drops the Tigers to 4-3 overall on the season and 2-3 in the Raccoon River Conference. Following the holiday break, the Tigers will be on the road on Tuesday, January 3rd when they take on Boone.
