Ashley 65 Hoggard 64

 
It's a great day to be a Screaming Eagle!
We can't say enough about our guys last night in a road win at Hoggard. Hoggard came in the game ranked the #1 4A in the southest region, and no other county school has come within 15 points of them this year. They are a quality opponent to say the least. Our guys really battled all night! There are so many positives to go around. Our bigs played outstanding and really asserted themselves in the second half, which allowed for execution on the offensive end. Tyre' Gathright had an outstanding game finishing with 26 points, 3 steals, and guarding Hoggard's best player the majority of the night. Jake Stinnett added 13 points and lead us through the game. Bryston Davis came up with the game winning basket with 19 seconds remaining. This was such a proud moment as a coach to see the results of this young mans hard work. Several guys off our bench played quality minutes. Just overall a great win for our team and our school. We have talked all year to them about changing the culture and establishing this program. We are excited about the direction we are heading and I can't say enough about the resilience of this group. It was such an honor to represent this team and this school last night. 
 
Next game is Friday, 3/6 versus 71st High School the number two team 4A Team in the state
