Cutlip Golf Design rallies to win boys Rec Center semifinal, 41-40

By David Rogers. BOONE, N.C. — Midway through the second period, the 6th-7th-8th grade Watauga Recreation Center team of Cutlip Golf Design was down by 13 points to Appalachian Pressure Washing. The boys never folded up their proverbial tents, however, and rallied to defeat their league semifinal rivals by a point, 41-40, in a nail biter that went down to the last possession in the last second.

Although all of the Cutlip players who saw court time contributed, it was point guard Fletcher Farris who proved to be a one-man offensive wrecking machine, scoring 37 of his team’s 41 points in the win. Remarkably, he was 15-for-15 from the free throw line, including 2-for-2 from the charity stripe with just 6 seconds left on the game clock and his team behind, 40-39. After he sank both free throws to put his team ahead, the Cutlip defense forced the Appalachian counterattack wide, which led to more time being taken off the clock and a desperation attempt falling well short of its mark.

Cutlip Golf Design now advances to play Boone Dermatology on March 2, for the league championship.

  • APW Jaden McInnis (13)
