ADAMS TOWNSHIP — Drew Taylor scored 25 points and Monroe scored 22 straight fourth quarter points Tuesday en route to a 69-43 win over Clinton-Massie at Brian P. Mudd Court.

The Hornets used a smothering defense and hot-shooting to send Massie to its seventh loss in 11 games.

Sawyer Conrad led the Clinton-Massie offense with 14 points. Ryan Dillion had 12 points.

The game started with a beautiful post move from Conrad, but Monroe scored the next seven points, highlighted by a three from Taylor. The Hornets put together a 12-1 run led by its defense. The Falcons countered with an 8-2 run as Jerry Trout hit a three that helped steal some momentum with an 8-2 CM run.

The second quarter would start with each side playing tough defense and not allowing either team to get inside. Dillion had a steal and basket to cut the Massie deficit to one then scored a layup to put the Falcons on top for the first time since 2-0. Owen Trick powered his way to another basket to extend the CM lead.

Taylor beat the buzzer to help the Hornets score nine straight points and take a 29-22 lead at the break. It was still close after three as the teams traded baskets with Monroe lead 45-37 going to the final period.

The Falcons made it 45-39 before the Hornets went on an impressive 22-0 run to put the game away.
