The Charter Oak-Ute girls and boys went on the road Tuesday night and dropped a pair of Rolling Valley Conference games to CAM at Anita.
In game one, CAM raced out to a 30-18 halftime lead en route to a 61-41 victory over Derek Dougherty’s CO-U club.
In the nightcap, the CO-U boys shot just 30 percent from the floor in a 66-45 loss to the host Cougars.
Tuesday’s 20-point setback snapped a three-game win streak for CO-U, which fell to 4-2 in the RVC and 5-3 overall.
CAM, after leading by 12 at halftime, outscored CO-U 31-23 in the second half for the win.
Caylie Boyle was the lone CO-U player to reach double figures with 11 points. She added five rebounds, two assists and two shot blocks.
Tori Nuzum contributed nine points, three boards and three steals.
Taya Thomas had nine points. Jennifer Stallons finished with six points and two boards. Casey Carstens chipped in with five points and a team-high 10 boards, while HaiLee Dobernecker had one point and three boards.
"This was a swing game in the conference, as we wanted to stay in second place, but credit CAM with coming out and playing well," commented CO-U’s Dougherty.
"CAM did the little things like rebounding, hitting open shots and limiting turnovers better than we did early on and that put us in a deficit we were unable to overcome," he added.
CAM jumped out to a 30-16 halftime lead and CO-U could not recover, as the Bobcats saw their three-game win streak stopped in falling to 2-3 in the RVC and 3-4 overall.
CO-U, just 2-of-14 from three-point range, hit only 15-of-49 tries from the floor for 30 percent.
Hunter Clausen continued his fine season on Tuesday night, posting his fourth double-double of the season with 24 points and 11 boards.
Spencer Gress added 10 points, five boards and two assists. Caleb Clemon chipped in with five points, three assists and two steals.
Jesse Hupp contributed two points, seven boards and two assists as well for the Bobcats, which did convert 13-of-18 free throws, while turning the ball over 14 times on the night.
"We started off flat and we got it handed to us," commented Charter Oak-Ute coach Trent Lally.
"We got outrebounded and didn’t play as a team and we shot 30 percent from the floor. You’re not going to win many games like that," he added.
