Sonics shock the Underdogs

Posted: Friday, Jul 4th, 2014


Nicholas Mattson/Atascadero News Atascadero summer basketball league Supersonics Blaker Sherer hits a baseline jumper to tie the game against the Underdogs at 47-47 on Tuesday at Colony Park Community Center.


ATASCADERO New for the 2014 summer basketball league season for Atascadero is a high school division, and the court at Colony Park Community Center was taken over by incoming Atascadero High School freshman and sophomores. The Supersonics took on the Underdogs for a close battle between aspiring talents.

The competition was fierce and led to a 38-38 halftime score. The Underdogs took a 20-18 lead after one quarter, then the Supersonics battled back for the halftime tie.

In the first quarter, Kaden Cullors led the Underdogs with three 3-pointers for 12 points total. Ethan Coalwell led the Underdogs with eight points in the first quarter.

Cullors continued his outside daggers with two more 3-pointers in the second quarter, and got help from Marco Rojas, who had nine points in the second. But Underdogs Levi Candiff and Blake Sherer came alive in the second quarter to lift the Dogs back to a tie at halftime.

Defensive pressure quieted Cullors in the second half, and he was held to just one 3-pointer, while Cole Wendorff opened fire on the Supersonics from long range with three 3-pointers of his own to lead the Supersonics to the lead at the end of the third quarter.

Rojas scored from the right baseline with 5:24 left in the third quarter to tie the game again, 44-44, and drained a 3-pointer on the next play to put the Sonics back up, 47-44.
