The varsity Cubs stand atop the District 10-1A D1 standings and have clinched a playoff spot following big wins at Seymour and at home versus Petrolia last week.
Olney 42, Seymour 35
On the road at Seymour Tuesday, Jan. 28, the Cubs got a little bit of revenge over the Panthers for handing them their first and only district loss earlier in the season.
Since that time, Seymour has been on a downward slide while the Cubs have not lost another district match.
Olney controlled the game from the start, leading 14-6 after one quarter and 21-12 at the half. In the third period the Cubs outpaced Seymour 12-9. In the fourth quarter, Seymour mounted a comeback attempt and outscored Olney 14-9 but the Cubs held on for the victory.
Tanner Thompson led the team with 15 points, followed by Ethen Guerra with 11, Cooper Pulliam with eight, Robert Colgan with six and Lane Spivey with two.
Olney 47, Petrolia 38
In their final home game Friday, Jan. 31, the Cubs made short work of the Petrolia Pirates. Olney scored 13 in the first quarter, 12 in the second and 11 in each of the final two periods. Petrolia scored 17 in the first half and 21 in the second.
Point leaders for Olney were Thompson with 18, Pulliam with 11, Guerra with nine, Tracey Jones with seven and Colgan with two.
On Friday, Feb. 7, the Cubs will close out their regular season with a game at Electra. Tip-off of the JV game is planned for 5 p.m., with the varsity boys to follow at 6:30 p.m.
Playoff opponents and sites are still up in the air, but Coach Carl Pennington said warm-up game opponents and playoff sites and times will be announced as soon as possible this week.
