Maybe if they were on the road.
That is: Perhaps if Northside’s girls were “at” Warner Robins instead of vice versa Saturday the results would have been different. After all, they were 5-0 when traveling (2-0 at neutral sites).
At home on the other hand. Not so good. They entered 2-2 and are now 2-3 after dropping a 64-52 decision. They also fell to 9-3 overall whereas the Demonettes improved to 8-7. (The away theory will be tested Jan. 18 when Northside visits Warner Robins.)
Warner Robins’ boys also won, 60-45, to extend their win streak to 11 straight while snapping the Eagles’ four-game mark.
The Demons improved to 12-1 overall while Northside went to 9-4.
Elsewhere in weekend action, Veterans’ girls and boys each picked up a pair of wins. They traveled to Bainbridge Friday in their Region 1-AAAAA opener and then went to West Laurens Saturday in a non-region contest.
The Lady Warhawks beat the Lady Bearcats 50-45 – Tamia Luckey had 20 and Stacie Jones 17 to lead the way – and then the Lady Raiders 48-33.
They improved to 13-2, 1-0, while Bainbridge fell to 7-10, 1-2.
The Warhawks came away with a 68-60 victory over Bainbridge and beat West Laurens 55-40.
They improved to 14-1 overall, 1-0 in the division. The Bearcats fell to 10-8, 1-2.
Houston County was also on the road at Coffee in a Region 1-AAAAAA matchup. The Lady Bears won their matchup 50-44 – a 15-3 first-quarter advantage had a big impact.
They improved to 12-3 overall, 2-0 in the division. The Lady Trojans dropped to 6-7, 0-1.
The Bears didn’t fare as well. They lost 53-46 – a 10-4 first-quarter disadvantage worked against them; even a 23-13 advantage in the fourth couldn’t turn it around.
They fell to 6-7 overall, 0-2 in the region while Coffee improved to 10-3, 1-0.
