CENTERBURG — In a battle of conference undefeateds, the Centerburg Trojans (5-1, 3-0 MOAC) needed a total team effort to shut down the Fredericktown Freddies (3-3, 2-1 MOAC) in their own building.

That’s just what the Trojans got on Tuesday evening on both ends of the court to defeat host Fredericktown, 47-29, in their Mid-Ohio Athletic Conference matchup.

Offensively, Centerburg’s Kendall Compton shot 7-of-10 from the floor and 5-of-6 from the foul line to lead all scorers with 19 points.

“We established how we wanted to play the game,” said Centerburg coach Todd Nauman. “I think (Fredericktown) got a few too many offensive rebounds — even in the first quarter. We wern’t getting them pushed outside enough, but the kids played a great game tonight.”

Fredericktown’s Emily Williams and sophomore Macy Earnest scored in double digits for Fredericktown, each finishing the game with 10 points.

The Trojans came out shooting, knocking down the first seven points of the game. The Trojans did it on defense as well, holding the Freddies to under 10 points in three of the four quarters.
