Camas County 52, Carey 43

Express Staff Writer

Carey boys' basketball lost its first game of the season Wednesday night, falling to Clark County 52-43 on the road.

The loss, which put Carey at 8-1 (4-0 conference) on the season, came on the heels of an easy 59-33 victory Tuesday night over Northside Conference foe Dietrich.

The usual suspects led the scoring for Carey, as seniors Tadd Green and Tyler Cook combined for 66 points in the two games. Green scored a game-high 27 points (6 rebounds) against Dietrich while Cooke amassed 15. Clark County (2-5) contained the duo Wednesday night, holding Green to a team-best 13 points (nine rebounds) and Cook to 11 (six rebounds).

Before Wednesday's game, Carey head coach Dick Simpson expressed some concern about Clark County.

"They have a potentially good team, they had a little hype last year," he said. "Every game you play you never know."

Statistics for Clark County were unavailable.

Simpson said his team got off to a "slow start" against Dietrich, despite a 28-13 Carey lead at the half.

"We didn't have our normal output to start with, but we found a way to do it," Simpson said. "They eventually got going."

Dietrich's Dakota Norman recorded a double-double with 11 points and 11 rebounds. Fabriciano Venegas followed with nine points.

Dietrich fell to 2-5 (1-3 conference). They're off until Jan. 4, when they host the Community School.

Clark County faces the Sugar Sophomores Jan. 6.

Carey next hosts Bliss on Jan. 3.
