Caleb Fix accepts the third place trophy after a last second win over Broadus in the consolation game of the District 4C Tournament.

The Bulldogs faced rival Broadus in the third-fourth place consolation game on Saturday evening. Broadus has steadily improved their play throughout the season under former CCHS coach Mike Richards, and the game proved a tough test for the Bulldogs. The Hawks were down by four at the start of the fourth but made up the deficit, due in-large-part to Clay LaPlant who had 10 points in the quarter. Broadus was able to force overtime.

With the game tied and only seconds left in overtime, freshman Turner Tooke stole the ball from a Broadus player and made a layup at the other end, lifting Blue to a two-point, last second victory.

CCHS 11 20 35 42 47

Broadus 10 19 31 42 45

CCHS: Mick O'Connor 16, Jared Pardee 14, Turner Tooke 10, Caleb Fix 7

Broadus: Clay LaPlant 21, Beau Kuhbacher 10, Kashus Giacometto 6, Marcus Mader 4, Tayden Gee 2, Aaron Rogers 2

With a third place finish at the district tournament, the Bulldogs will head to Laurel for their first game at the Southern C Divisional Tournament against Park City on Thursday at 1:30 p.m.
