Basketball waits for no man. Or woman … or youth …
So it is, that even as the Demons and Bears prepare for their first round opponent in the state football playoffs this Friday, the two schools’ basketball teams began their year – minus a scrimmage last week – on the basketball court Tuesday at Warner Robins.
For the girls, it was Houston County – up 48-34 after three – holding off a rally by Warner Robins in the fourth quarter for a 57-51 win.
On the boys’ side, the Demons won 60-54. They led 17-16 after one, but trailed 31-26 at the half by virtue of a 15-9 second quarter in favor of the Bears.
Warner Robins returned the favor in the third, outscoring Houston County 18-7, for a 44-38 lead. Both then scored 16 in the fourth.
