CHS: Well both the Red Devils varsity basketball teams were on the road last night in 1st round AAA Tournament action… The girls traveled to Lower Richland to take on the Lady Diamond Hornets… The boys were not too far away taking on the Falcons of AC Flora.
- Girls: LR 77 – CHS 27… The Lady Red Devils saw their season come to an end as the defending AAA State Champions as lower Richland defeated Clinton 77-27…. Clinton succumbed to the pressure of LR early and struggled to get anything going offensively… In the second period Clinton had no answer for LR as they scored off of their press, offensive rebounds and fast break opportunities as Clinton continued to struggle offensively and was down 42-14 at the half… The second half was very similar to the first half. Coach Chris Wofford stated afterwards “I can’t say enough about this group, especially the seniors and our captains Queena Cunningham and Bredaisha Walls… Those two never quit and fought to the very end.”… Noelia Leake led the Lady Red Devils with 6 points… Others scoring were Trevoria Dendy & Tamia Sanders both had 4 points while KT Speaks, Queena Cunningham & Chyna Davis had 3 each… Ticambrius Copeland and Maleaka Neal had 2 points each to round out Clinton’s scoring… Clinton’s season ends with an 8-16 record.
- Boys: ACF 79 – CHS 61… In boys’ action, the Red Devils ran into a strong Falcon team and fell by a score of 79-61… The score was only 18-10 Flora at the end of the first quarter but Flora transition game gave the Red Devils problems in the 2nd quarter as the Falcons stretched their lead and led 46-25 at the half… The Red Devils regrouped at the half and came out and played better ball all around… Flora led by as much as 24 points in the second half but the Red Devils were able to battle back and get within 12 point midway through the 4th quarter but just could not get any closer… Nike Davis and Tay Cook had 16 points each to lead the Red Devils in scoring… The Red Devils finished the season with an 11-14 record… Congratulations to both teams for making the playoff!!!
LDHS: Also last night the Laurens Raiders traveled to Anderson to take on the TL Hanna Yellow Jackets in 1st round AAAA Tournament Action.
- TLH 60 – LDHS 42… Some say that it is hard to beat team 3 times in a season but last night in Anderson TL Hanna did just that as they defeated the defeated the Laurens Raiders 60-42… The Raiders played well in the first half and the score stood 37-30 Hanna at the half… Hannah came back out in the 3rd period and slowly started pulling away from the Raiders and had a 53-37 lead going into the final quarter of play… Hanna started controlling the board better in the 3rd quarter and the Raiders offense started to struggle… Both teams had a poor final quarter as both missed shots and the Raiders were unable to get a bucket until there was only 3:41 left in the game… Hanna simply played ball control and forced Laurens to foul the final few minutes… Jordan Sargent was the only Raiders in double-digits scoring 11 points… Kezario Whitmore had 8 points for the Raiders while Davon Boyce, Toby Jackson & Chuck Johnson had 5 each… Chris Statom had 4 and both LaDarius Williams and E’Nicholas Leake added to each to round out the Raiders scoring… The Raiders finish their season 12-13 under first year Head Coach Ben Sinclair… The young team had no seniors so the future looks bright for the young team
