Emilee Harris scored a game-high 11 points and grabbed 11 rebounds as Macon County defeated Westmoreland 26-22.


Michael Evans scored 13 of his game-high 14 points in the second half as Westmoreland rallied from a 15-point third-quarter deficit to defeat visiting Macon County 31-26 in a middle school boys’ basketball game played on Monday, Jan. 3.


The Eagles trailed 22-7 with less than a minute remaining in the third period before outscoring the Tigers 20-3 and taking the lead for keeps – at 27-25 – on a three-point play by Michael Evans with 1:58 left in the contest.


After hitting 10 of its first 14 field goal attempts, including two three-pointers – in as many tries – by Brett Davis, Macon County made just one of its last five shots from the floor while turning the ball over 11 times in the second half.


Westmoreland struggled offensively in the first half, making just two of 20 field goal attempts – a 10 percent average – while turning the ball over seven times as Macon County took a 17-5 halftime lead.


The Tigers then extended their lead to 20-5 when Evan Perrigo buried a three-pointer with 4:19 left in the third period.
Following an exchange of baskets, the Eagles scored the last six points of the third quarter – on a basket and two free throws by Michael Evans and a basket by Brad Evans – to close to within 22-13 heading into the final period.


After Perrigo scored to extend Macon County’s lead to 24-13 early in the fourth quarter, a basket and a pair of free throws by Michael Evans narrowed the gap to 24-17 with 4:15 left in the contest.


Then, following a turnover by the Tigers, Justice Graves hit a three-pointer to pull Westmoreland to within 24-20 with 3:41 to play.


A free throw by Trace McPherson stretched Macon County’s lead to 25-20, but back-to-back baskets by Brad Evans and Graves and a three-point play by Michael Evans erased the deficit as Westmoreland surged into the lead, 27-25, with 1:58 remaining.


Perrigo would hit the second of two free throw attempts with 52 seconds remaining to cut the Eagles’ lead to 27-26, but Westmoreland sealed the win with a basket by Brad Evans and a pair of free throws by Grant Oliver.


Brad Evans added 10 points in the winning effort while Graves and Oliver had five and two points, respectively.


Michael Evans had a game-high seven rebounds while Brandon Hudson led both teams with four assists and five steals.
For the game, Westmoreland made 11 of 39 field goal attempts – a 28.2 percent average – and hit eight of 14 tries from the free throw line while turning the ball over eight times.


Perrigo paced Macon County with 11 points. McPherson and Alex Hill added seven and six points, respectively.
Hill led the Tigers in rebounds with six.


For the game, Macon County made 11 of 19 field goal attempts – a 57.8 percent average – and hit two of five tries from the free throw line while turning the ball over 21 times.


In girls’ action, Emilee Harris scored a game-high 11 points and grabbed 11 rebounds as Macon County defeated Westmoreland 26-22, ending the Lady Eagles’ eight-game winning streak.


With the game tied at 12-12 late in the second period, the Tigerettes scored seven straight points – including three by Harris – to take a 19-12 lead with 4:03 left in the third quarter.


The Lady Eagles pulled back to within two points twice – at 22-20 and 24-22 – but could get no closer while falling to 8-2.
Abbey Hinton and Samantha Parker scored eight points each to lead Westmoreland while Alex Minor and Autumn Carter added four and two points, respectively.


Hinton led the Lady Eagles with nine rebounds and three assists. She and Minor both had two steals.


For the game, Westmoreland made 11 of 36 field goal attempts – a 30.6 percent average – and missed its only free throw attempt while turning the ball over 13 times.

  Bulldog Alex Mullinix prepares to inbound the ball in the last moments of the January 6, 2011 game against Westmoreland.

The Red Boiling Springs Junior High Bulldog Basketball team made a trailing comeback in the third quarter to tie the Westmoreland Eagles at 17 points, during the January 6, 2011 basketball game.


The Eagles grabbed the lead early in the game  with three consecutive three-point shots, and denying RBS all but four points from Dallas Greanead and Skyler Holden. After one round of play, Westmoreland lead 9-4, and by halftime, the Bulldogs were trailing 15-11.


Alex Mullinix inched RBS closer with two-points to open the third quarter, which was immediately answered by Westmoreland. Exhausting the first minute of the game clock, the Red Boiling Springs’ Mullinix and Greanead duo acquired the Bulldogs first lead of the night, 18-17.


The score was knotted twice more in the third quarter, before Bulldog Zane Roberts plucked out a three-point shot to edge Westmoreland 24-21 when the buzzer sounded.


During the last quarter of play, the score remained close with the Bulldogs dominating the scoreboard until Westmoreland picked up two back to back lay-ups to tie the game at 33 each with 41.8 seconds left in the game. At that moment, one of Westmoreland’s top Eagles #10 fouled out, and picked up a technical penalty, producing a double bonus situation for Red Boiling Springs. Screams filled the air, as Bulldog #10 Zane Roberts and #15 Alex Mullinix stepped to the line, making all four shots.


Westmoreland achieved their next two-point attempt to shadow the Bulldogs 37-35 with 22.5 second left to play, however an Eagle fouled Dallas Greanead eight seconds later, making a three point game lead for Red Boiling Springs.

Westmoreland had time for one more possession, with 2.9 on the game clock. Racing to their WMS’ side of the court and stopping at the three-point line, Eagle #24 missed the hoop by inches, allowing the Bulldogs to claim the win 38-35.


In the girls game... Westmoreland denied the Lady Bulldogs all but two points in the first quarter of play to lead 13-2, which was achieved by RBS’ Kristen Stacey.


The second period resembled the first, with Red Boiling Springs’ Emily Gregory adding only two points to their score, as the Lady Eagles took off to hold a 22-4 halftime advantage.


Red Boiling Springs added three points in the third quarter by Lady Bulldog Kaitlyn McCarter, as Westmoreland continued to inch forward to lead 27-7.


Heading into the last period, Lady Bulldog Madison Medrano picked up eight  points to lead Red Boiling Springs, however the Lady Eagles capitalized the win with a final score of 34-14.


The local junior high basketball teams from Red Boiling Springs and Macon County will be participating in the (CRC) Highland Rim Conference Tournament on January 12-15, 2011. Good luck teams!
