Boys split weekend games
The Brady boys found out that Paxton’s No. 2 pre-season rating in Class D-1 is for real.
The Tigers smacked the Eagles with a 15-3 first quarter en route to a 67-30 stomping on Friday.
“Cody Corfield is legitimate,” said Eagle coach David Jacobs of Paxton’s leading scorer. “All you can hope to do is slow him down because you’re not going to stop him.”
Paxton maintained pace and precision throughout the night, keeping Brady from accomplishing much at all.
“They had 10 kids score,” Jacobs said of Paxton. “It’s pretty tough to compete with that.”
Senior Zach Mann had 12 points to lead Brady.
But the Eagles pulled themselves back together on Saturday after a long road trip to Cody-Kilgore.
“Cody hung tough for a long time,” Jacobs said. “It took longer than we wanted to put them away but we came home with a win and that’s what counts.”
Mann again led the Eagles in scoring with 26 points. He also added 13 rebounds.
Sophomore Troy Lusk chipped in 12 points and senior Bryley Roper swiped 10 steals.
The Eagles move to 2-1 on the season as they host Hitchcock County (4-1) on Friday before traveling to Loomis Saturday.
“We’ve got a couple of tough games this weekend,” Jacobs said. “We’d sure like to have a couple of solid games and finish strong before the holiday tournaments.”
