The Romulus Eagles survived multiple comeback attempts by the second ranked team in Class C on Tuesday night, Consortium. By the time the fourth quarter started the score was only 40-42 in favor the visiting Romulus Eagles. With the crowd on their side, it looked as if Consortium was going to gain momentum pull of the upset. But this is where the senior leadership of Romulus stepped up. Led by E.C. Matthews and Jalon Plummer, Romulus was able to hit three threes in the first 1:30 of the quarter extending their lead to 51-42. Consortium was not out the game yet. Clawing their way back to being down only three with 4:05 remaining. However, Romulus hit clutch free-throws late in the game to seal the 66-59 hard-fought road victory.

Game Notes

Consortium- As usual, freshman guard Josh Jackson had a marvelous game. Finishing up with 21 points. Being guarded by the always tough defender Wes Clark. But what changed this game for the Cougars is that Vincent Hunter missed eight free-throws. A very rare occurrence for such a talented ball-player like him.

Romulus- Senior forward Leo Edwards contributed with 21 points. Controlling the paint and doing a nice job of team-work with E.C. guarding Consortium senior forward Vince Hunter. Matthews played off-guard for most of the night finished up with 26 points and five three pointers. While fellow senior Wes Clark finished up with 12 points and seven dimes.
