Indians sink Clippers

Marion 58, CCA 49

TIFFIN– The Marion Indians took a WaMaC conference varsity matchup from the Clear Creek Amana (CCA) Clippers 58-49 Tuesday, Dec. 16, in the Clippers’ gym.
CCA held onto a slim lead in the first quarter, but a sluggish second period allowed the Indians to knock holes in the ship. CCA trailed at the half, 35-22.
Despite aggressive damage control in the second half, the Clippers weren’t able to close the gap, never regained the lead and suffered their third loss of the season for a 3-3 record. The Clippers knocked off Vinton-Shellsburg (65-35) and Center Point-Urbana (68-60) the week before.
Jake Neubauer led the Clippers with 12 points while Marion’s Craig Engle led all scorers with a game-high 21 points.
CCA starts the New Year with a Tuesday, Jan. 6, 2015, game with the visiting Solon Spartans.
