It was just the start you would hope for when facing the state's No. 1 team. Barlow center Kobie Ham drew traffic under the basket and kicked the ball out top where Dominik Copper swished a wide-open 3-pointer.

Unfortunately for the Bruins, that proved to be their only points of the first quarter.

Barlow missed its next seven attempts and a series of turnovers fed a Central Catholic scoring spurt. The Rams finished the period with a 14-3 lead when Austin Rose split two defenders and rolled the ball in off the rim for a three-point play.

Central Catholic remained in control the rest of the night on its way to a 52-38 win on its home court to keep it tied with Clackamas atop the Mount Hood Conference standings.
