Demons surpass century mark for second-straight game

Don Moncrief Basketball, Featured, Warner Robins HS

The good news – if there was to be good news to be found – for Thomas County Central was it scored 20 points more – 21 to be exact – in its second matchup against Warner Robins than it scored the first time they met.

The bad news was the Demons scored 30-plus more. The first time they met, Jan. 19 in Thomasville, Warner Robins won 68-38. Friday at home, the Demons rolled 102-59. Only the win against Houston County, which came on Tuesday, marked an occasion this year in which Warner Robins scored more – 103.

Needless to say, surpassing the century mark in the last two games of the regular season is a pretty strong message to the rest of the competition.

The Demons finished the regular season 9-0 in 1-AAAAA, 21-3 overall. The Yellow Jackets fell to 2-5, 5-18.

Warner Robins led just 17-13 after one, but pulled away in the second with a 33-11 advantage. TCC matched them fairly well in the third, only coming up one-point short, 18-17, but were well-outmatched in the fourth. The Demons outscored them during that period, 34-18.

The Demonettes also won their matchup against Thomas County Central, 55-31. That, too, represented the sweep – they won 64-16 the first time.

Warner Robins finished the regular season 3-5 in 1-AAAAA, 13-10 overall. The Lady Yellow Jackets fell to 0-7, 2-21.

Next up for Warner Robins will be the region tournament Feb. 9 – times, opponents and locations to be determined.
