Clinton had Edgerton High’s state-rated boys basketball team on the run again, but not for the long.


After the visiting Cougars rallied from an eight-point halftime deficit to lead by one after three quarters Thursday night, the Crimson Tide stepped into high gear and rolled to 57-43 victory.


Edgerton, No. 6 in the AP Division 2 ratings, improved to 15-1 for the season and protected its half-lead over Evansville (12-4, 9-2) in the Rock Valley with a 9-1 conference record. The Crimson Tide can increase it to a full game by beating last-place Palmyra-Eagle (2-13, 0-10) on Saturday afternoon at the Bradley Center in Milwaukee.


Clinton (6-10, 5-6), which played Edgerton within four points earlier this season, hit three three-point goals in building an 18-9 advantage in the third quarter of the rematch. Andy Eliszewski ended the period with a three-pointer that gave the Cougars their only lead of the game at 39-38.


Edgerton opened the fourth quarter with a 10-0 burst. Bryan Gregory scored eight of his game-high 18 points, and Derek Carrier got six of his 14 as the Tide put the game out of reach with a 21-6 advantage over the last eight minutes.


Clinton had five three-point goals, but Keifer Cary, who had 12 points, was the Cougars’ only double-figure scorer.
