Goats continue to roll over CTL
Brewster Bears fall

Chelan beat Brewster pretty handily in their first game
this season and Tuesday night's outing (January 26) was no exception to the
devastating offense and defense the Goats are bringing to the court this
"They do so many things defensively to disrupt their
opponents game," said Steve Stamps. The Goats forced 23 turnovers off the Bears
who were held to only 11 points during the first half.
The first quarter alone was an offensive onslaught by
Joey Harris, Aaron McQuaid and Michael Amsel Jr. who scored 24, 17 and 12 points
respectively in the game. After the first quarter, the score was 27-7 and it
didn't get any better in the second quarter of play for Brewster who was held to
only four points. With the score 45-11 at the break, Stamps said, "They are
being forced to shoot shots they don't want to take,"
A lot of being forced to take shots you don't want comes
from the introduction of the shot clock to the boys program this year.
Brewster faired much better in the second half with
Chelan outscoring them by only eight points in the third and with the bench
playing most of the fourth, Brewster outscored Chelan 16-12, but none of that
mattered in the end as Chelan chalked up one more win to stay solidly in first
place in the CTL and ranked 2nd in the State 1A AP ranks.
The Goats will host the Tonasket Tigers on Saturday,
January 30 and then will host Cashmere on Tuesday,
