In the second half, Chisago Lakes chipped away at the lead, using a a barrage of different players. Seth Thompson, Alex Paulsen, Will Tinjum and Jackson Timm all scored in double figures and Ryan Sanvik added seven.
By the end of the game, Chisago Lakes was worn out from fighting back in the game that the Thunder won 79-77.
“We’re playing some good team offense and are moving the ball well,” Head Coach Josh Flug said. “But, we need to clean things up on the defensive side of the ball, especially if we expect to compete in our conference and section.”
Centennial 93, Chisago Lakes 67
The Cougars took it to CL early in this contest on Thursday, December 6.
Centennial jumped out to a nine point lead by halftime, and really put the pedal to the metal in the second half, scoring nearly 50 points.

Paulsen led CL with 21 points, Thompson had 17 and Tinjum added 11.
