Cats ground Hawks

The Bobcats discuss execution during a late timeout at a recent home game.

It was a slow first half filled with fouls, but the Bobcats responded with a 56-46 victory over Pea Ridge on Friday night.

"We're playing pretty good right now," head coach Brent Compton said.

The Cats have been put to the test as of late, as they have been on the road for five of their last eight games, something Compton said speaks to the chemistry of the boys.

"It really goes to show how mentally tough this team truly is," he said. "In fact, our last two games have been on the road, and we came back from behind to get the wins."

The Cats have traditionally been a second half team this year, and Friday was no different.

The Cats were down one at half and six at the end of three, but the offense really emerged in the fourth, tallying 27 points.

"We just really started to make our shots," Compton said. "Our guys were in foul trouble during the first half and we just couldn't get our shots to fall."

Austin Carr, who was primarily on the bench due to fouls, emerged in the final quarter, as he scored 14 of his 17.

Alex Dowdle -- 12; Rick Porter -- nine; Donnie Hoppe -- nine; Adam Sugg -- seven; Clayton Alexander -- two.

In the girls' game, the Blackhawks emerged victorious, as they routed the Lady Cats, 52-41. Both teams play at home on Feb. 7 and tavel to Gentry on Feb. 10.
