The class 2A quarterfinal round resumed this afternoon at the Boys’ State Basketball Tournament in Des Moines. Second ranked Fort Dodge St. Edmond was ice cold in the first half of their quarterfinal game against Clarinda and made just six of 23 shots. Fortunately for the Gaels, the Cardinals were frozen. Clarinda made only five of 28 shots in the first half and only five of 26 after halftime as St. Edmond rolled to a 43-22 win. The Gaels only shot 33 percent for the game and only led 24-15 going into the fourth quarter. Tim Flattery led St. Edmond with 16-points and also held Clarinda standout Andrew Stimson to 13-points on six-of-23 shooting. Flattery says he knew he was a great shooter and so he just tried to get over screens and get into his face to keep him from hitting shots.Clarinda coach Brent Douma says his team’s a lot better shooting team than what they showed. He says they have to credit St. Ed’s for being a solid team that plays good defense and doesn’t make many mistakes.
