Mansfield Senior stays unbeaten in OCC play with a 75-46 win over Clear Fork Friday night.

The Tygers leading scorer PG Keon Johnson also returned after missing Mansfield's last three games with an ankle injury and he would get it going early. Johnson would hit three triples on consecutive posessions to help Mansfield build a 13-1 lead, which would extend to 19-6 after the first quarter.

Clear Fork would trim the deficit down to just 8-points halfway through the second quarter, but an 11-3 run by the Tygers, fueled by another stretch of three straight 3-balls for Johnson, would push the lead out to 36-21 at the break. The Colts would have the Mansfield lead down to 11 early in the third quarter, but the Tygers would shoot an amazing 73% in the second half on 16/22 shooting to run away with a 29-point win.

Johnson finished with a game-high 20 points to lead all scorers in just 16 minutes of action, teammate Donovyn Benson played just 13 min but finished with 14 pts & 6 rb's, CJ Simmons dropped 14 and Robert Jones had 6 pts & 8 rb's.

Kadin Chrastina led Clear Fork with 18 points, Ridge Winand had 12 and Keith Corbin 9.

Mansfield Senior finished 24/39 (62%) from the field, Clear Fork 15/42 (36%). The Tygers also outrebounded the Colts 34-21.

Mansfield improves to 12-2 and stays perfect in the conference at 9-0. The Tygers will play undefeated, number 1 ranked Columbus Northland at Capital University Sat night at 6:45. Clear Fork falls to 7-8 and will host Madison.
