- Girls: Laurens 46 – Clinton 33… The Clinton Lady Red Devils and the Laurens Lady Raiders met for the first of 3 times in a span of a couple of weeks at the BHP Pre-Season Tournament last night… When the final buzzer sounded, the Raiders had taken a 46-33 win over the Red Devils … Laurens pressure defense gave Clinton problems at first as the Raiders jumped out to a 12-4 lead at the end of the first period… The Raiders led 31-18 at the end of the third period but the Lady Red Devils did not give up as the cut the lead to just 6 points twice in the last two minutes before Jadasia Bennett hit a couple of 3 pointers and the Raiders converted a Clinton turnover into points to make the final score 43-33… Coach Chris Wofford of Clinton pointed out that his team did get good looks at the basket early on but just could not get the shots to fall… He also liked the way his team battled back but poor decisions kept them from getting any closer… Coach Washington of Laurens applauded her teams hustle and effort but stated that they still had a lot to work on including good shot selection… Former Laurens Raider Maleaka Neal led Clinton’s scoring with 11 points… For other Clinton scoring, click on the following link: 11_26_13_CHSvsLDHS Girls Jadasia Bennett led the Raiders scoring with 14 points….

- Boys: Dorman 78 – Laurens 73… The Dorman cavaliers came into last night’s game with the Laurens Riders looking for revenge as Laurens sent them home with a defeat in the first round of the 4-A playoffs… The Cavaliers got their revenge as they defeated Laurens 78-73 but the young Raider team is to be congratulated for their effort… Dorman jumped out to a 44-28 lead at the half as the Raiders were a little tentative in the first half and had trouble getting shots to fall… About midway through the 3rd period the Raiders started to chip away at the lead and had a got to within 4 before falling 78-73… Coach Ben Sinclair mentioned he was proud of the way the team mounted the comeback and the Raiders just ran out of time… Davon Boyce led the Raiders with 30 points… Laurens will now face Byrnes at 3:00 pm today at Spartanburg Christian Academy.
