Dec 12, 2006 12:00 am
MURFREESBORO — The Blue Devils of Lebanon went down to District 7-AAA rival Oakland 70-35 Friday.
Lebanon never got into a rhythm offensively and trailed throughout the contest.
The first quarter ended giving Oakland the advantage 15-4. The Blue Devils managed to get some points on the board in the second with baskets by Connor Burger and O'Keefe McCarver.
The Patriots pulled away in the second half and the buzzer sounded on a third-quarter score of 48-26.
For Oakland, Chiasson Allen led the way with 17 points, Kit Carlton tossed in 14, Jaffarious Wade added 12 and DeAndre Maupin 10.
Leading the Blue Devils was Burger with eight points, Terrence Logue followed with five, Hershal McCathern, Robert Crudup, Alex Johnson and Xavier Smith had four apiece, McCarver put in three, Keenan Davis two and Luke Sampson a free throw.
Lebanon hosts the Bears of Mt. Juliet in the Blue Devil Classic next Friday at Campbell Brandon Gym/Hester Gibbs Court.
Fast start propels Friendship past Clay County
CELINA — Friendship Christian's boys bolted out of the gate early and Coach Matt Bradshaw used the big lead as an opportunity to make up for lost practice time in a 54-45 win over Clay County on Friday.
The Commanders sailed to a 23-11 first-quarter lead and were up 34-20 at halftime. They led 45-26 through three periods as they won for the second time in as many outings following a late start due to the football team's run to the BlueCross Bowl last week.
"We got out on them pretty good," Bradshaw said. "We started working on some things. We haven't had a lot of days of practice.
"It was a good night. Anytime you can go to Clay County and get a win, it's good."
Michael Teeter stepped outside to throw in three 3-pointers on his way to 18 points for Friendship while Garrett McKnight tossed in two triples on his way to 14. Cameron Spaulding scored six points, John Hatcher five; Lee Maasen, Parker Teeter and John Doak three each and Adam Stephens two.
Scott Brown bucketed 11 points and Tyler Edwards 10 for Clay County.
Friendship will host Station Camp on Tuesday.
