 November 16, 2018. Clear Lake 58 - Fort Bend Marshall 55

Starting out slowly in a high school varsity basketball game can often lead to disappointment. It sure looked like that early in tonight's contest between Lake and Marshall. Before we knew it, we were down 21-7 at the end of the first quarter. Lake outscored the Buffs 17-10 in the 2nd quarter to make it 31-24 Marshall at the half. After 3, Lake was down by 1 so it was an exciting final quarter. The lead changed 6 times in the first 2 minutes of the fourth quarter and the see-saw continued throughout the remainder. The Lake victory was not obvious until the last 30 seconds of the contest. Those with weak hearts cannot stand too many games like this.

John Argue had 17 pts., JaJa Sanni got on track and had 12. Casey Davis had 11, Jake Mather had 9, and Caleb Wright had 7.

The Falcons play at home Monday at 2 pm against Dobie. Dobie plays in the McDonalds Texas Invitational Tournament Saturday in the Division 2 Silver championship so lets hope they are tired.


November 14, 2018. Clear Lake 54 - Lamar 44

 On the 12th anniversary of the dedication of Krueger Field House, the Falcons opened the 2018-19 season with a victory over Lamar High School. Lake swept the evening by winning the Freshman A game (by 9), the JV game (by 11), and the Varsity game by 10. Against one of the more formidable school teams in the Houston area, this is a rare occurence.

Casey Davis and Jaja Sanni are expected by some to be the leading scorers for the Falcons this season but senior big men John Argue (26 points) and Jake Mather (12pts) seemed to dispell that notion while battling a taller, very scrappy Lamar squad.

The Falcons provided a preliminary glance at what lies in store this season with precision and teamwork not often seen in the first third of the season on the high school level.

A brief description of a game like this would not be complete without mentioning the difference that point guard Riley Gingrich made when he was in the game in the second half. As a floor general, he was superb. His activity on both ends of the court had a most significant effect on the outcome of this game.

Senior Jeremiah Maldonado is nearing the end of his recuperation from a torn ACL (his second) but he will likely not see much playing time until mid to late December.

This is going to be a fun season for the team and for the fans.
