Behind a solid inside presence of Calvin Solomon and dominate guard play on both sides of the floor Klein Forest re-established themselves as the de facto favorites of District 15-6A.
Enjoying a 20-0 run between the first and second quarters the Eagles went on the road and defeated a previously unbeaten Klein Collins team 67-54 Tuesday night. The Eagles are now destined to repeat as district champions behind senior leadership that extends across the court.
“We knew it was going to be a tough,” said Klein Forest coach Cary Back.
“Both teams came in undefeated and Scotty (Harmatuk) does a great job and his kids play hard, coming here it’s always tough to get a dub.”
Klein Forest moves to 8-0 in district play and 18-3 overall on the season.
Klein Collins drops to 6-1 and 14-8.
Klein Forest next plays Oak Ridge Tuesday, January 15 at 7pm.
