December 17, 2017 GMT

COLUMBUS — Scotus Central Catholic couldn’t get its offense going Friday night in a 54-37 home loss to Pierce.

The Shamrocks (1-4) made just one field goal in the second quarter, a 3-pointer by Colson Kosch, and trailed 24-18 at halftime.

Pierce (2-4) gradually extended its lead in the second half, outscoring the Shamrocks 15-10 in the third quarter and 15-9 in the fourth.

“We got a lot of good looks, but we just couldn’t put the ball in the rim,” Scotus head coach Tyler Swanson said. “We have struggled to do that in games lately and we need to figure it out in games because we are making those shots in practice.”
