Falcons Continue Migration North
Jarrett's Jumper is Good
Jarrett Hall came off the bench to score 12 points in the game against the Wildcats of West Stokes. The Falcons depth is one of the reasons that the team leads the conference.
This one was a tight one throughout. The Wildcats came out shooting the 3-ball with precision in an effort to keep pace with the high octane offense of the Falcons. At the end of the 1st quarter, the two teams were tied at 18 points apiece.
The Wildcats were able to open up a twelve point lead during the second period on the sharp shooting of #23 as he hit six 3-pointers in the first half. The Wildcats lead 41-29 at the half.
Micah Cranfill and Josh Wood got the offense cranked up for the Falcons in the third period by scoring 13 of the team's 21 points to tie the score at 50 heading into the final period. Josh Sisk also added another 3 points from the bench with a big 3-point basket.
In the fourth period, both teams traded runs and it looked like the winner would be the team that had the last possession. Lance Kennedy became the final contributor from the Falcon bench as he dropped in two 3-pointers in the fourth period to help seal the deal. The Falcons survived a couple of close shots in the waning seconds to beat the Wildcats 68-67. The Falcons had a total of 23 bench points in this one. Depth is a wonderful thing!
Josh is a rebounding machine that gives Forbush a dominant post presence. The Falcon guards really should buy this guy's dinner on road trips for all the space he opens up for them to operate.
Jackson was a force on the offensive glass early on in this game. His intensity helped to keep the Falcons in contention until the offense could settle down.
Attack the Loose Ball
The Falcons attack a loose ball during the fourth quarter. It is the small things that payoff in a close game.
