CometCountry is on a distinguished road
Decided to skip the Comets at Kings and went over to the Elder at Oak Hills backyard rivalry game. Amazing crowd lining the upper deck at OH and the Elder boys out in force in the upper deck with OH having a "white-out" in their very full student section--felt like a HS game from the 70's and 80's.

OH came out and jumped on the Panthers opening up an unbelievable 22-1 lead 11 minutes into the game. OH defense was taking everything away that Elder wanted to run and Elder was very leery to even take a shot. OH was executing on all cylinders as Strader, Hayes, and Nick Deifel with two "3" balls got the Highlanders rolling. Elder fought back to cut it to 27-17 at the half and kept digging in to cut the lead to 34-27 heading into the final quarter. The Panthers got the lead down to 4 at 36-32, but OH got a few stops and made a high % of free throws and two big layups by Berkemeier to seal the 51-38 win. Great coaching job by Coach Price and his staff in moving OH to 10-3 and a pat on the back for a very solid comeback by the Panthers that fell short.
