The Skipjacks of Chesapeake College (5-12) took a hard loss at home against Cecil College 87-66. Coming off the big night against Anne Arundel, the Skipjacks were hoping to take that momentum and get up big early. Those hopes were smashed early on as the strong Cecil team were working hard and getting a lot of second chance opportunities. The game was won on the boards at which Cecil brought down 54 to Chesapeake's minimal 34.
The Peake took a hard loss early s Terehk Agnew who was averaging 10 points and 9 boards on the year went down with an injury and never came back. Without that presence in the paint Cecil feasted on miss shot opportunities. This helped Cecil get easy shot opportunities close to the basket and prevailed them to a 47.8 percent shooting night.
Coach Allen Mitchell was not pleased with the heart and toughness that his guys played with. Coach Mitchell went on to say, " Assistant Coaches Anthony Washington, Artron Strowbridge, Charles Mackey, and myself will continue to push and motivate our players as there are still a lot of games left. We just need to finish games and play 40 minutes! Teaching moments, this is why I love this game."
Coach Mitchell is a great motivator and look for The Skipjacks to bounce back in the long 217-2018 season. Next up for Chesapeake will be an away game against the navy Midshipman JV on 1-24.
