What a night! After honoring our homecoming court and our fallen Mohawk, Jacob James, the Mohawks took on the Spartans for a homecoming MHC match up. The Spartans came out hot and earned a 15-10 1st quarter advantage. The Mohawks made some adjustments and charged back in the second quarter. JT Johns and Tyler Bowlby helped the Mohawks take a 24-21 lead into halftime.

Bowlby helped the Mohawks in the third quarter, scoring 8 of his 20 points in the quarter. Jacobi Percell was fantastic all night, scoring 12 hard-earned in the paint and grabbing 10 rebounds to notch his first double double of the season.

The fourth quarter was back and forth affair. The Mohawks never surrendered the lead, but some timely three pointers to cut the deficit to three. Bowlby and Shawn Cole helped the Mohawks secure the game by making 9 free throws in the quarter. Percell also put in three easy layups to ice the game. In the end, the Mohawks earned the County Bell with a 51-49 win.

The Mohawks face Rising Sun, a sectional opponent, tomorrow night at home.
