Kuemper Catholic was met with a sucker punch to start the game.
Early on, No. 2 ranked OABCIG had all the momentum, and Kuemper seemed to not be able to get a clean shot off. Once the Knights’ shots started to fall, they were able to give the Falcons all they could handle.
Sure, OABCIG led at halftime, 38-32, but Kuemper had all the momentum. It continued to show early on in the third quarter as the Knights had trimmed the deficit to just three points.
From there on, the Falcons went on the attack and eventually held off the Knights long enough to gain a 79-63 victory.
John Mayhall led the Knights with 18 points in the contest. Mitchell Badding finished with 15 points. Isaac Evans added 13 points. Noah Bauer finished with seven points. Dawson Gifford and Chirs Mohr both four points each. Michael Pottebaum finished with two points.
