January 24, 2012

CUMBERLAND – Every game is important for head coach Gary Reedy and his Cumberland High squad, but Tuesday’s Division II crossover matchup with host Barrington could have been listed under the must-win category.
The Clippers and Eagles each went into the contest with matching 6-3 league marks, putting them just two victories away from a berth in the open state tournament in March.
