Versailles Tigers, Eldon Mustangs and Camdenton Lakers

Versailles comes up short at Father Tolton

Versailles visited Columbia on Tuesday night to take on Father Tolton and the Tigers came home with a 70-47 defeat.

It was a close ballgame after the first quarter with Versailles only trailing by two points, but Father Tolton opened up a 34-23 lead at halftime and never looked back.

“Defensively we did a good job in the first half of making their non-shooters shoot and we got away from our game plan a little in the second half,” Versailles coach Jason Ollison said. “Overall, I feel we showed improvement in our defense and that is important as we move into the conference season.”

Coby Williams lead the Tigers with 17 points while Hunter Edgar and Shane Randall both chipped in nine points respectively.

Versailles (6-6) will be back in action Tuesday night for a Tri-County Conference battle with Southern Boone at 5 p.m.

Eldon falls to Helias Catholic

Eldon had a tough night on the court Tuesday at Helias Catholic.

The Mustang offense struggled early and the end result was a 61-26 loss to the Crusaders.

“We had a horrendous first half,” Eldon coach Brandon Kliethermes said. “We ended up with 21 turnovers and gave up 18 offensive rebounds. We won’t beat anybody like that, especially a state-ranked team.”

Drew Rodriguez paced Eldon with eight points and Devin Lewis added six points of his own.

Eldon (1-11) will play host to Fulton on Monday night at 5 p.m.

 Camdenton drops game to Glendale

Camdenton visited their Ozark Conference foe Glendale on Tuesday night and the Lakers came home with an 87-45 loss. 

Dyllan Decker placed the Lakers with 13 points, Garrett Golliher added 10 and Hunter Glynn finished with eight points of his own. 

Camdenton (5-6) will look to get back on track with a trip to Joplin on Friday night at 7 p.m.
