In basketball the object, in the final analysis, is to put a ball through a hoop. When you do that well you usually win. When you don't, you don't. Tuesday night Calhoun was not able to put a ball through a hoop with any great consistency and the result was a 46-41 setback at the hands of Clay County.

The Red Devils had many clear, open and, at times, close shots. They did not hit them.

Clay took an early lead but Calhoun rallied in the second quarter - when the shots were falling - and took a one-point halftime lead, 19-18. But they could not maintain the momentum and Clay grabbed the lead midway through the third quarter and kept Calhoun at bay after that. Tristan Harris and Jake Perkins led Calhoun with 10 points apiece. Harris also had a game high 15 rebounds.

Mike Batten added seven, Tommy Gerwig five, Tyler Shartiger three and Chad Conley, Jeff Cunningham and John Dodd added two each.

The loss drops Calhoun to 6-8 on the season. The Red Devils return to action Saturday at home against Sissonville.

Clay used a 12-0 run in the first and second quarters to post a 28-25 victory in the junior varsity game.

John Dodd led Calhoun with 11 while Jacob Dodd added eight. Matt Houchin, Andrew Norman and Victor Carpenter added two each for Calhoun.
