Both the Lady Red Hawks and the Red Hawks kept their win streaks alive last night we hard-fought victories.

Community cam to visit and the Viqueens fell short 52-44 while the Vikings were dispatched 65-56.

It was a great night for scoring as Creek Wood would have three girls and three boys in double figures in each matchup.

The Lady Red Hawks saw Brianna Burgess score only ten but spread the ball around well helping Laura Nichols score thirteen and Alessia Nesbitt tie her career-high from just under a week ago against Harpeth with nineteen.

You obviously expect Burgess and Nichols to score in double figures.

More than likely well into double figures.

However, as we discussed during the game last night, even if Nesbitt begins to build consistency and scores eight to twelve or twelve to fourteen, that could be the needed factor to push them into another state tournament run.

Meanwhile, the Red Hawks, as I said, had three double-digit scorers as well.

Braden Dawson was a force down low with thirteen points and nine rebounds, while Jamison Ford once again proved he is an elite athlete with eighteen points including a nine-point third quarter.

The top performer though in either game last night, was Jace Herrell.

Scoring twenty-three points is impressive enough, what pushes it over the top, is going 12-for-12 at the free-throw line.

If you include the Harpeth game, Herrell is now twenty for his last twenty at the line.

That is elite at any level, at any time.

Next up is a quick turnaround as Creek Wood and Dickson County renew a cross-county rivalry for the second time this season.

Six pm tip-off for the girls, boys to follow fifteen minutes after. Pre-Game with myself and Mac Morey beginning at 5:45.
