  • Girls: CHS 42 – LDHS 35: in the girl’s game, the Lady Red Devils gained revenge for earlier loss to the Lady Raiders as they took a 42-35 win over the visitors… The game stayed very tight and competitive through the first three-quarters with Laurens trying to run with the ball as much as possible and Clinton playing a little bit more patient…   Clinton had a 30-27 lead going into the final quarter of play and put the game away in the fourth quarter as they outscored the Raiders 12-8….Clinton simply made shots at the end and hit free throws while Laurens had trouble doing both… Maleaka Neal led the Lady Red Devils with 11 points… Also scoring for the Red Devils were: Bredashia Walls 8, Tamia Sanders 7, Trevoria Dendy 6, Queena Cunningham 4 and both DaNaishia Floyd and Chyna Davis added 3 point each… Jadasia Bennett and Kela Daniels both had 9 points to lead the Lady Raiders… Others scoring for Laurens were; Kiya Burnside 5, KC Cofield 4, Jessica Johnson & Briana Carcamos both had 3 points and Bre Nance 2..

  • Boys: LDHS 70 – CHS 57: in the boy’s game, Laurens extracted a little bit of revenge for the girls loss as they defeated Clinton 70-57… The game was a fast paced one as both teams moved up and down the court quickly….The Raiders led by three points (31-28) at the half and started putting the game away late in the third quarter and continue to do so in the fourth quarter….Clinton continued to try to keep pace with the Raiders but found shots not falling while the Raiders were able to make theirs….Laurens’ Davon Boyce led all scorers with 22 points…. Nike Davis led Clinton with 17 and Tay Cook added 10 points… Also scoring for Clinton were; Shakiyl Smiley 9, RJ Robinson 7, Tymori Tribble 6, and Ian Kinard 2… In addition to Boyce’s 22 points for Laurens also scoring were; Chuck Johnson 10, Jordan Sargent 9, Toby Jackson 7, LaDarius Williams & LaJune Jones 6 each, E’Nicholas Leake & Kezario Whitmore 5 each, and Chris Statom 3 points… Though Raiders improved their record to 2-2 while Clinton stands at 0-1 as this was the first game of their season….
