The Martin boys’ varsity basketball team Monday night claimed a 64-57 road win at Saugatuck to move its overall season record to 2-1.
The Clippers started fast, taking a huge early lead in the first quarter, 21 to 5 and ended the half up by 17.
“Luckily that proved to be just enough,” coach Brad Moelker said. “Saugatuck really battled and made some tough plays throughout the second half and kept it close. The first half things weren’t going their way, but I was definitely impressed at how they took it to us after that.
“Offensively it was nice to see a few new scorers in the book.,” the coach added.”We’ve been pretty top heavy until tonight. We expect it from Collin and Mitchell every night but our other guys are more than capable. They just have to learn that for themselves.”
