The GHS varsity boys traveled to take on the Brewer Patriots last Friday night. This win brings the 'Cats to 3-0 in area play, and it is always great to win on the road.
According to Coach Brett Self, “This was a great team win. It was great to see all 12 players in the scoring column.”
Leading the way offensively, Cooper Davidson scored 24 points. Brandon Fussell did a great job attacking in transition scoring 12 points. Kade Wilson stepped up in a starting position scoring 10 points. Other scorers were Curt Blanchard (8 pts), Oakley Howell (7 pts), Antonio Spurgeon (7 pts), Tucker Leach (3 pts), Brody Perry (3 pts), John Michael McElrath (2 pts), Brayden Graham (2 pts), Ross Harrell (1 pt), and CJ Pike (1 pt).
The 'Cats dominated the Patriots leading 47-20 at the half and winning 80-53.
The Wildcats were to face an athletic Columbia team on Monday, January 10, followed by their final area game on Friday against Fairview. Coach Self would like to encourage the Guntersville community to come out and support the boys and girls basketball programs.
The GHS JV boys also traveled to Brewer last Friday. Although the 'Cats did not shoot the ball well against Brewer’s zone defense and trailed by 3 at the start of the fourth quarter, this team rallied together and were able to finish on an 18-4 run winning 51-40.
Noah Fitzgibbons led the team with 11 points, while Carter Britt and Ty Yancy each scored 10 points. Date Peterson and Maddox Werkmeister each had 6 points, and EJ Havis and Royce Baucom scored 4 points each.
Coach Miller said, “Brewer is a tough place to play. I am very proud of the way we never gave up even when things were not going good.”
