The JV Hawks are rolling now, winners of 8 in a row. Tonight’s opponent was W&L, the last team to defeat the Hawks. Hayfield, similar to the last game vs. Washington & Lee, came out slow, going down 9 at the end of one, as W&L hit a 3 pointer, at the buzzer. However, also like last time, the Hawks got going in the 2nd quarter, outscoring their opponent by 9, to pull even at 28. In the second half, the game seesawed, as both teams went on spurts. The Hawks found themselves down 3 with under 2 minutes, when Chris Johnson hit his 2nd 3 pointer of the game, to knot the game again at 45. Tyler Thornton hit a key running layup down the stretch, and the Hawks hit just enough free throws to edge the Generals by 2. W&L had a chance to tie, but Chris Johnson deflected the last pass of the game, to throw off their rythem.
The Hawks were led by their point guards tonight, who combined for 24 points, 5 assists, and 5 steals (Brandon: 10pts., 3 assts., 3 stls., Tyler: 11 pts. 2 stls., and Baz: 3 pts. 2 assts.) Other key contributors: Richmond Williams (4 pts., 10 rebs.),
Ed Kargbo (3 pts. 4 assts.), and Chris Johnson (6 pts., 5 rebs.). The Hawks next face a new opponent, Yorktown HS, on Friday night at home.
