MCHS picks up 2 wins in Westmoreland

By Mark Darnell

The Tigers and Tigerettes of Macon Co. picked up two road wins this past Friday night at Westmoreland. With the victory the girls claimed the regular season district title and the boys finished second.

Coach Beam’s girls came out seemingly on a mission. Both teams had a great deal of defensive intensity and Macon County had pretty even scoring in the first quarter. Reid hit a shot at the end of the period to make the score Macon 12 Westmoreland 2. 

In the second quarter, 3 pt shooting by Harris and Gregory pulled the Tigerettes away early in the quarter. The Tigerettes hit a rough spot with a little sloppy play which led to some foul concerns. However, at the half Macon had opened their lead to 27 to 7 over the Eagles.

The third period was a little slow. Harris and Bean scored 9 of 11 MC points in the quarter as Brooks ran the floor. As Macon picked up their pressure the third period ended with Macon leading 38 to 12 and in full control.

Coach Beam emptied the bench and the entire roster played in the game. With the starters out, the game ended with a final score of 48 to 24 for the MC win.

Scoring were Gregory 10 pts, Brooks 4 pts, Reid 9 pts, Bean, 6 pts, Harris 11 pts, Thompson 4 pts, Wilburn 4 pts. The entire team played.

The Tigers picked up right where the Tigerettes left off. Macon came out with unbridled defensive intensity and ran away scoring the first 12 points of the game. Kempf and Grace contributed great defensive play. At the end of the first buzzer the score was Macon 25 Westmoreland 13.

In the 2nd Macon kept on firing. Kemp made one rain to run out the lead. However, the game Eagles battled back to cut the lead to 11 points. The half ended  with the score 35 to 23 with the Tigers over the Eagles.

The Tigers hit a little bump in the road. Manning and Billenstien picked up their  3rd fouls fairly early in the quarter. Tiger turnovers allowed the Eagles to cut the lead to 38-30. However, Billenstien’s 3 pt. bucket seemed to pick the Tigers back up. The third period ended with Macon leading the Eagles 45 to 37.

The Eagles cut the lead to 7 at the beginning of the last quarter. However McPhearson made a block and run-out lay-up to take the lead back to eleven. A 3 point bucket by Billenstien and 3 the old fashioned way by Manning left no doubt. Final Score Macon 61 Westmoreland 50.

Scoring for the Tigers Billenstien 15 pts, Manning 13 pts, McPherson 7 pts, Grace 11 pts, Kemp 7 pts, Kempf 2 pts, Russell 4 pts, and Carter 2 pts.
