"We got some good min- utes from Shelby, Kenna and Delaney," said McCutchan. Pike Central was able to fight their way back to a one point lead, but a turnover gave the ball and lead back to White River. "Playing with- out two starters, we just kind of ran out of gas and couldn't get over the hump," said Mc- Cutchan.
