Veterans’ girls finished off the weekend 2-0. The Lady Warhawks, with 20 points from Staci Jones and 12 from Madison Perez, rolled past Thomas County Central 51-25 on the road Friday and then edged Warner Robins 65-62 Saturday – the Demonettes almost overcame an 18-point deficit and missed a three that would have sent it into overtime at the buzzer – at home on Military Appreciation Night. (Perez had 16 that night, Jones 15 and Tamia Luckey 14 – including going six-of-10 from the free throw line.)
The rest of the girls and boys in the local equation – Veterans and Warner Robins High – all finished 1-1.
The Demons 50-48 at Bainbridge on Friday before beating the Warhawks 53-43 Saturday.
The Warhawks got their win via those same Yellow Jackets, 53-46, Friday.
Warner Robins’ win came against the Lady Bearcats, 51-25, Friday.
All told, it still left Warner Robins’ boys in first in 1-AAAAA. They are 5-2, 18-6. Harris County is second at 4-2, 15-7. Veterans is third, 4-3, 15-9. Bainbridge is fourth, 4-4, 11-12 and Thomas County Central is fifth, 0-6, 3-18.
The Demons have one region game left. That’s at Thomas County Central (they are 2-5 on the road, 10-0 at home), Feb. 1. The Warhawks’ final one of the regular season is at Harris County, also Feb. 1 (they’re 5-4 on the road).
For the girls, Veterans is in first at 7-0, 22-2. Harris County is second at 5-1, 17-5, followed by Warner Robins, 3-4, 13-9, Bainbridge, 1-6, 10-13 and Thomas County Central, 0-5, 2-17.
The Lady Warhawks have one game left in the regular season. That’s against Harris County, Feb. 1. The best the Lady Tigers can do is tie things up having lost 58-49 to Veterans back on Jan. 8. (Note: They would still lose out if it came down to an “overall record” tiebreaker.)
