OWENSVILLE — Clermont Northeastern remained atop the standings Tuesday with a 56-22 win over East Clinton at the CNE gym.
The Rockets (13-5, 8-1) stayed a game in front of second place Williamsburg with the win.
East Clinton falls to 0-16, 0-8.
It was an uphill battle for the Astros, who trailed 14-10 after one quarter. It was still close, 22-17, at halftime.
But the Rockets outscored the Astros 17-0 in the third period to take a 39-17 lead. East Clinton scored five in the fourth while Clermont Northeastern scored 17.
“We took another step forward,” EC coach Clyde Snow said. “We were cold shooting the ball. But overall we played hard. I feel as if we got a lot of good looks but we just struggled to finish. The positive thing for us is, we are still taking strides in the right direction and that’s a positive for this team and this program.”
Dakota Collom led the Astros with eight points.
