The Saint Clement Anchormen clinched a return trip to the State Tournament beating the Marian Mustangs last week 68-38. The Anchormen now lead the Catholic Central League 8-1.
The week ended with a bittersweet defeat against Cristo Rey 58-55 as Senior Forward Kevin Foley hit the 1000 points mark. Foley leads the team in points and has been a key factor in the teams return to the State Tournament.
The Anchormen lead against Cristo Rey at the half 29 to 22 and exchanged the lead throughout the second half. With 34 seconds left Foley ties the game with a free throw, but the Anchormen would not score again and allowed Cristo Rey to score and walk off the court with the win.
The Anchormen will face Austin Prep and league rivals Mt St Joseph and Lowell Catholic this week.
