Central Catholic Rams visited Scots turf this Friday to continue climbing in their Mt. Hood Conference league play which seems to be coming along with ease for team Munson. Rams were quick to put David Douglas at a deficit in the opening minutes and effectively kept the gap open throughout the match, which landed Central Catholic an 87-66 victory and puts them on a 6-Match winning streak.
“It’s tough, because competition does drop in conference play”, says Rams senior Austin Dyer, “so we can’t become complacent and we have to continue to get better in practice. We can’t just stay on “cruise control,” we have to approach each game as if it’s the state finals.” And so the Rams did with great bravado.
Dyer scored a Game-High 25 points despite being in recovery from an injury. “Last week against Barlow I hyper extended my knee and ended up with a high ankle sprain. I sat out against Centennial earlier this week but I still didn’t feel 100 percent, so I noticed I had to use my brain a lot more as opposed to out jumping people and using my body.”
Rams senior guard Mitchell Franz was close behind Dyer with 18pts followed by Xavier Hallinan with an even dozen.
Scots pumped up their defensive end in the third but was not effective against Rams 4th quarter heat.
Rams will be traveling to Gresham for their next league match-up against the Gophers. Gresham is currently holding a 13-5 overall and 3-2 league record and will need a monkey wrench or two up their sleeves to phase the charging Rams.
