Clarkston in trouble already?

First of all, a lot of credit has to go to the Troy Athens boys basketball team for what it achieved on Tuesday. Playing an inspired game, the Red Hawks knocked off Clarkston, 41-40.
It's believed to be the first time that Athens has ever beaten Clarkston in boys basketball.
A nice job no doubt by Athens, but at the same time, it might signal a red flag for Clarkston, which is appropriate since the primary color for Athens is red.
Following a nice season-opening win against Orchard Lake St. Mary's, Clarkston has dropped back-to-back road games at Flint Carman-Ainsworth and Athens, failing to score more than 40 points in either game.
Kosmo knows its early, but this is not a good sign. The Wolves don't appear to have a legitimate No. 1 scoring option that can bail a team out when they're struggling. Oh, none of this means Clarkston will be bad.
The Wolves should still be a good defensive team and one of the best-coached teams in the state behind Dan Fife.
But it means that this might not be as good of a team that there usually is over at Clarkston.
