Veterans’ boys added one more to their undefeated season Saturday with a 63-59 road win over Warner Robins.
The Warhawks improved to 14-0 in the process, and just as importantly, moved their Region 1-AAAAA record to 5-0. The Demons, the second time this year they’ve lost to their cross-town rivals, fell to 10-9, 3-3.
The game itself was marred by fouls. There were more than 50. It also, like the last time the two got together, featured a number of lead changes and wasn’t really decided until late.
Veterans led 17-14 after one and 29-23 at the half. Its lead was 45-35 after three. It outscored Warner Robins 18-14 in the final frame.
T.J. Grant led the Warhawks’ offensive effort with 19. DeAngelo Hall had 15, Tahj Williams 13 and Aaron Jones 8.
Rashaun Williams finished with 13 to lead the Demons. Raushan Tomlin had 12.
Warner Robins’ girls won the earlier game 63-37.
It was actually close early. The Demonettes led the first 12-11. They did get out to a 12-4 lead before the Lady Warhawks scored seven straight. Both put up the same numbers in the second, 12-11. Four times they were tied during that frame.
The turning point was the third. Warner Robins came out and scored the first 17 points. It went on to outscore Veterans 24-5 that period and held a 48-27 lead heading into the fourth quarter. There, it outscored Veterans 15-10.
Tasia Agee led the Demonettes in scoring. She had 19. Chaniya Felton chipped in 14. Nevaeh Mach had nine and Courtney Davis seven.
Gabby Tribue led the Lady Warhawks with 15. Tiara Williams had 13 and Ansley Miranda seven.
With the win, Warner Robins – its eight-straight victory – improved to 15-3, 6-0 in 1-AAAAA. (With the top girls team being the host, they have almost assuredly sealed that honor.) Veterans fell to 7-11, 2-4.
