BOYS HOOP WRAP: H-J slides past Bobcats

ORANGEFIELD — Surviving a fast start by Orangefield and a shooting barrage by Bobcat Carmichael Wiley in the second half, the Hardin-Jefferson Hawks got out of Bobcat Gym with a 53-36 District 21-3A win over the Bobcats.

Orangefield (11-8, 0-3) opened the game with an 8-0 run only to see the Hawks (22-3, 1-1) go on a 30-6 spurt to close the half with a 30-14 edge.

The Hawks then watched Wiley rip three consecutive three-pointers to open the third period that pulled the Bobcats to within 30-23.

Behind the efforts of Zjori Bosha and Michael Saladin, the Hawks finished out the game with a 23-13 run to turn back the Bobcats.

Bosha led the Hawks with 18 points and also collected six rebounds. Saladin finished with 15 points, nine of them coming in the second quarter and he drilled four straight free-throws to close the game. Post Dylan Mays led the Hawks with nine rebounds.

Wiley finished with 19 points and six boards to pace the Bobcat attack. He finished with five three-pointers, all of them coming in the second half, including four in the third period. Bobcat post Mason Sonnier finished with six points and 10 rebounds.

The Bobcats opened with a quick 8-0 lead getting buckets by Wiley and Kress and back-to-back nice post moves by Sonnier.

However, the Hawks tallied the last 10 points of the period with back-to-back three-pointers by Bosha and Leland Rogers that sparked the run.

The Hawks went on a 20-6 tear in the second period. Saladin and Bosha combined for 16 of them.

The Bobcats stormed out in the third with those three straight treys by Wiley but Hawk guard Sammy Mitchell tossed a desperation three-pointer at the end of the period that gave the Hawks a 10-point cushion again at 39-29.

The Hawks finished the contest out with a 14-7 run in the fourth with Bosha and Saladin combining for 12 more points.

The Hawks finished with a slim 31-29 rebounding advantage. Both teams protected the ball well. Orangefield committed just 13 turnovers while the Hawks had just six.

There definitely was a big difference at the charity stripe and the Hawks got plenty of it. Hardin-Jefferson finished 15-of-22 from the free-throw line while the Bobcats were just 0-for-1.

The Bobcats will look to bounce back Tuesday when they visit Orange County rival West Orange-Stark.

Silsbee boys 92, BC 35

BRIDGE CITY — The Silsbee Tigers stayed perfect in District 21-3A play by downing the Bridge City Cardinals 92-35 at Cardinal Gym Friday afternoon.

The Tigers, who forced the Cardinals into 35 turnovers, were paced by guard Chris Elam’s 27 points.

Post Alex Bingham led the Cardinals (11-9, 0-3) with 19 points.

The Cardinals will visit Hamshire-Fannett Tuesday and will host Hardin-Jefferson next Friday.

Nederland boys 56, LC-M 40

NEDERLAND — Colton Weisbrod scored a game-high 24 points, powering the Nederland Bulldogs past the Little Cypress-Mauriceville Bears 56-40 in District 20-4A action at Bulldog Gym Friday night.

The Bulldogs (3-0 in district), outscored the Bears (2-1 in district) 17-9 in the first period and stretched their lead to 28-16 at the half.

Trumaine Elmore led the Bears with 13 points while Taylor Peveto filtered in 13.

Tyler Toon added 10 points for the Bulldogs.

The Bears return to action Tuesday when they welcome the Beaumont Ozen Panthers to the Bear Cave.
