SHEFFIELD VILLAGE — Clearview used a balanced attack to earn a road win, 64-49, at Brookside on Friday night.
Five Clippers scored in double figures tonight, led by Javon Todd with 12 points. Chase Christensen had 11 points, while Jaylen Paschel, C.J. Fleming and Jamir Billings each scored 10 points.
Clearview led 19-11 after a quarter, thanks to six points from Todd and five points from Billings. Jon Wright scored seven in the first quarter to lead the Cardinals.
After the first quarter, Clearview turned up the pressure. Clearview forced 21 Brookside turnovers over the final 24 minutes. The Clippers put together a run late in the first half to push the lead out to 39-26 at the break.
Brookside opened the third quarter on a 7-2 run, but Clearview responded to outscore the Cardinals 17-13 in the quarter, to lead 56-39 after three.
Despite a lot of action in the fourth quarter, the ball didn’t seem to find its way into the bucket that often. The Cardinals outscored Clearview 10-8 in the quarter.
Clearview moves to 14-4 overall and 13-1 in the Patriot Athletic Conference. Clearview’s win tonight sets up a showdown next Friday night against Fairview where the Patriot Athletic Conference Stripes Division Championship will likely be on the line. Clearview first travels to Sandusky for a non-conference matchup on Tuesday evening.
Over the weekend, we’ll also learn the tournament brackets for the Clearview boys. The boys play in the loaded Division II North Ridgeville district, which features several strong teams from across the area. Brackets should be released by Sunday evening.
The JV Clippers fell to Brookside 56-48, while the Freshmen boys defeated Brookside 47-37.
