I told you on Wednesday the Claremore at Bishop Kelley game had the chance to be an instant classic and it was. Allow me to clarify one thing, the “instant classic” is a fan’s perspective for sure. The losing team, in this case Claremore, probably feels like they let one get away.
Claremore had a 13-point, 4th quarter lead when Kelley began to mount a comeback. In any game, momentum can swing and swing it did for Kelley. When the final seconds ticked off the clock, Kelley held a one-point lead and would go on to secure the win at home, 42-41.
Not that Claremore needed to prove anything, but anyone looking at the 5A-4 district can know understand Claremore is still a dangerous team and not someone you want to take lightly in the playoffs. The victory secures a district title for the Comets, assuming they win out over Nathan Hale and Grove, which they should.
For Claremore, focus now shifts to beating Collinsville on the final game of the regular season to secure a second place finish in district. That game will be played at Claremore. Both teams at 4-1, with a game between their showdown on November 3rd.
