The Clear Fork basketball team has won two of their first three games this season and are getting ready for two games this weekend, both on the road. On Friday, the Colts will travel to Millersburg to take on 4-1 West Holmes. The Knights lost their first last Saturday night at Berlin Hiland 53-51. As always, to beat West Holmes you have got to keep track of senior point guard Brady Arnold who scored 27 points last Friday in an overtime win at Lexington 53-50. Clear Fork coach Steve Bechtel, says it's been that way for the last four years. Bechtel also adds that Arnold has the ability to make everyone else around him better and involved. On Saturday's opponent 5-0 Ontario, Bechtel says you have to be able to handle the Warrior's pressure saying Ontario will press you in the full court and half court and we have to be ready to handle it, especially on their floor. Junior forward Griffen Robinette, who scored 17 against the Madison Rams in Clear Fork's 70-57 win last Friday, says the team's offense is in good shape, however in the game that we lost 67-45 to Mount Vernon, our defense was weak and we got beat pretty good. Bechtel says to get both this weekend would be huge for the team saying that's the goal, but we've got to show up and be ready to play. The Knights took both from Clear Fork a season ago winning 72-63 and 74-66. The Colts did win their matchup with Ontario a year ago in Bellville 59-44.
