The Columbus West Cowboys from the City League South Division took on the Centennial Stars of the City North Division in a matchup that looked on paper as a mismatch.

West came into the game at 4-15, 3-11 in the South. Their only wins were two over winless Columbus South, one each over St. Charles and Africentric. The Cowboys are a team that has defensive problems having given up 100 or more points four times, over 90 points twice and over 80 points three times.

Centennial is one of the best teams in the North with Northland, Whetstone, Brookhaven and Beechcroft. The Stars came in 13-6, 11-3.

A mismatch? Not at all!

West came out to start the game hot, leading 5-2; 9-2 and 20-14 after the first quarter with sophomore guard Kersey Long scoring eight points to lead the way.

In the second quarter, the Stars played better and controlled the quarter, outscoring West 23-14, due partly to a full-court press that caused the visiting Cowboys into eight turnovers. Centennial’s Boo Osborne scored 10 points to lead the charge.

Kersey Long continued to keep West in the game, scoring eight more points in the 2nd quarter.

West outscored Centennial 18-15 in the third quarter as Long scored 11 more points, but trailed 56-52.

The 4th quarter belonged to West as they outscored the Stars 18-12 with Long scoring six more points and the two teams were tied at 68-68.

In overtime, Centennial took control as they force West into four crucial turnovers as they won 77-75 as Long missed a game-tying shot at the buzzer.

The West Cowboys should that they can stay with one of the better teams in the City League.

Centennial moved to 14-6 on the season and received nice production from several players, Wesley Russell and Boo Osborne each scored 23 points and Isaiah Osborne and Keenan Smith each scored 11 points each. The Stars committed 13 turnovers.

West was led by Long with 36 points and seven three-point goals, Will Chalender had 13 and Sagittarius Lamar scored 10. But 26 turnovers hurt the Cowboys upset bid and they fell to 4-16.
