After two massive wins on Monday night, Creek Wood returned to their home floor on Tuesday for a matchup with Harpeth.

It went about as you would expect.

The Lady Red Hawks ran away with a 76-37 victory, while the Red Hawks had a bit more defensive showdown victorious 48-43.

On the girls’ side, it was a slow start after a taxing game with Summertown Monday.

They would get into their rhythm near the end of the first quarter though and never look back.

Alessia Nesbitt had another game where she showed her potential with nineteen points, and double-digit forced turnovers.

Not the first time she has had a double-double that way, now it starts to become about building consistency.

Brianna Burgess and Laura Nichols did their part as always scoring twenty-two and fourteen respectively.

The defense though in the second game of a back-to-back was what really impressed many.

The Lady Red Hawks allowed just one Harpeth player over six points, Mattie Johnson had eighteen.

Meanwhile, the Red Hawks saw a more defensive showdown on both sides.

They allowed just two Indians over six points, Nathan Beasley had ten and Aiden Williams sixteen.

The two combined for sixteen of their teams eighteen in the fourth quarter, doing all they could to mount the comeback.

If not for Jace Herrell who would score all eleven of his points in the fourth, including going 8-for-8 at the free-throw line, the Beasley and Williams might have pulled it off.

Up next for Creek Wood is a trip to Greenbrier and a return to district play.

The Lady Red Hawks should have no problem continuing to cruise as the Lady Bobcats are 5-9 and lost Harpeth.

On the other hand, once again the Red Hawks will have a test in front of them.

The Bobcats are 13-1 their sole loss coming to Springfield on the road.

Tip-off will be at six pm with the Lady Red Hawks as always Red Hawks to follow fifteen minutes after.

Pre-game at 5:45.
