Veterans High’s girls and boys enjoyed their second win of the season over Houston County Tuesday. (The first was back on Dec. 3, 2019.) In a contest held this time at Houston County, the Lady Warhawks won 60-30 whereas the boys came away with a 52-46 victory.
Tamia Luckey made 14 points to lead Veterans’ girls. They improved to 16-2 overall while the Lady Bears fell to 13-5. Stacie Jones also had 12 – she also had 12 rebounds.
Zykeria Jenkins and Sydney Jones each had 9. Jenkins’ all came on 3-pointers. Two of those she knocked down in the third quarter, a period in which Veterans put up 22 points. They led 18-11 after one, 26-20 at the half and 48-34 heading into the final frame.
Marquia White led Houston County with 9 as well.
Veterans won a close one 52-46. In fact, it might have been closer, or they might even still be playing, if not for a four-point third quarter by the Bears. That was in contrast to the Warhawks’ 11. That enabled them to pull far enough away – the Bears outscored Veterans in the first 15-14 and second 13-12 – for the win.
Charles Brown had 11 and T.J. Morgan 9 to lead Houston County. DeAngelo Hines was the only Warhawk in double digits – he had 10 – but part of that is attributable to balanced scoring, as Veterans had nine players with two or more.
It improved to 17-1 overall. Houston County dropped to 6-10.
Elsewhere, Warner Robins hosted Harris County in a Region 1-AAAAA matchup. That was good news for the boys, not so good for the girls. The first won 60-47. The latter fell 56-43.
The Demons improved to 2-1 in the division, 14-2 overall. The Tigers are even everywhere at 2-2, 8-8 overall. The Demonettes on the other hand, fell to 1-2, 9-9 while Harris County’s girls remain on the heels of Veterans with a 3-1 record. They are 9-6 overall.
Northside was also at Coffee. That was not good news for either club. The girls lost 56-52. The boys fell 53-35.
The Lady Eagles consequently stand at 0-3 in the region, 1-AAAAAA. They are 10-6 overall. The Lady Trojans meanwhile improved to 2-1, 8-8.
