A 4-0 start to the season for the Eagles ended in Tuesday’s 75-44 All “A” quarterfinal loss to Mayfield. Mayfield will meet St. Mary in Friday’s semi-final for a shot at the 1st Region All “A” title on Saturday. Murray and Hickman County will meet in the other semi-final contest.
Mayfield stunned the Eagles with a 24-0 start to the game. CFS plagued by turnovers, finally got on the board on a field goal by Isaac Hovekamp. Andrew Allen scored the next 10 points for CFS on two and-1 plays and a couple of buckets to lead the Eagles, trailing 33-14 at the end of the first quarter.
Allen opened the scoring for the Eagles in the second quarter, scoring five of their eight points but trailing 54-22 at halftime proved to be too large a deficit to overcome in the second half in the 31 point loss.
Allen led CFS with 23 points and was 4/6 at the free throw line.
The Eagles will look to get back in the win column when they play Thomas Nelson High School at home on Friday.
