Creek Wood finally got to step on the court with Montgomery Central after two previous matchups had been postponed for weather.

It went as well as could be expected for them.

The Lady Red Hawks took down the short-handed lady Indians 64-28, while the Red Hawks score eighty for the third time this year, winning 80-50.

The Ladies certainly started slow, their first road trip in 6 games.

Just a 12-7 lead at the end of the first quarter, they exploded in the second.

Thirty-seven second-quarter points and they never looked back.

Brianna Burgess had twenty-one in the first half, twenty-five total, she was aided by fantastic spread-out scoring by everyone else.

Alessia Nesbitt had nine all in the first half, Laura Nichols an efficient quiet twelve, and Abby Owen had eight off the bench.

It was also another fantastic day for the deep bench players.

While only Lily Killebrew scored, almost everyone touched the floor.

Only Savanah Baker and Taja Vaughn did not play due to injury.

Meanwhile, on the other side, the boys might just have one-upped the girls.

Not only did they score eighty points for the third time this year, but they did it without Jamison Ford or Tanner Lampley.

They also achieved a rare feat, if you played Friday night, you scored.

From team-leading Braden Dawson with sixteen points, all the way to Gregory Fort, Greyson Walker, and Liam Adams who each had two.

They also defensively only gave up one double-digit scorer.

DT Faulk had twenty-six, the rest of the Indians combined for just twenty-four.

The competition revs up exponentially Tuesday night, however.

The Lady Red Hawks should not struggle with the lady Cats of Greenbrier, though it is a long bus ride.

However, the Red Hawks will now have to go on the road into a hostile environment and test themselves.

They defeated the Bobcats at Creek Wood a week ago, now they walk into the Bobcat den and it will be rocking.

Greenbrier is 19-2, 4-1 in district play.

This game is in almost every way, barring a collapse, for the regular-season title and the one seed come tourney time.

Creek Wood did not have Ford in matchup one.

I suspect they will need him in matchup two, as well as Lampley who had six key points in game one.

I can promise you this, Greenbrier will not let Jace Herrell have thirty-two again.

Tip-Off is at 6 pm for the Lady Red Hawks, boys to follow fifteen minutes after.

Pre-game at 5:45.
