Cougars Fall to ACC

(2/6/10) Clearwater, FL- Clearwater Christian College lost a heartbreaker to Atlanta Christian College by a final score of 68-66 on Senior Day. It was the last home game for the Cougars and the final career home game for seniors Lonzo Saunders, George Youstra, and Mark Cannon.

The Cougars again got off to a great start and went on a nice run to start the game which was punctuated by Mark Cannon's thunderous dunk in the opening minutes. The Cougars raced out to a double digit lead behind the hot shooting of Troy Hadlock and Bryan Copeland. The Cougars also did a great job of neutralizing the Chargers athleticism in the first half, leading by double digits for most of the first half and going into the half up 41-32.

The Cougars led most of the second half until late in the game when the Chargers inside game took over, blocking several Cougar shots and grabbing several key offensive rebounds. The Cougars had a shot to win the game but Troy Hadlock's running 3 point shot from 40 feet just missed as time expired.

Troy Hadlock led the Cougars in scoring with 21 points and Lonzo Saunders added 13. Bryan Copeland had a great night with 12 points, 10 assists, and 4 steals for the Cougars. The Cougars will travel to Kissimmee, Florida, on Tuesday night to take on Florida Christian College.
