ZEELAND WEST HIGH SCHOOL: 47
The Chix opened OK Green conference play by hosting their neighbors Zeeland West Friday night in front of a big, energetic crowd, with the Coop and the Swamp out in full force supporting their teams. The Chix jumped out early, taking a 3 point lead after the first quarter. The Chix added to their lead in the second quarter, aided by an Adam Cassel 3 pointer at the halftime buzzer to lead by 7 at halftime 29-22. The Chix kept the momentum going in the 3rd quarter, pushing their lead up to 16 points, punctuated by a Brandon Claerbaut dunk late in the quarter before the Dux mounted their comeback. The Dux knocked down some big shots in the fourth quarter, including a 3 point shot to trim the Chix lead to 2 points with just under 6 seconds to play, but the Chix held on for a 49-47 win.
