Hey, you know you are going up against some pretty tough odds when you have to go on the road, you’re facing a team that has only lost one conference game and that team is being coached by former Elon University and Burlington Williams Bulldogs-great, Tommy Cole….Cole was one of the all-time best players from the old Carolinas Conference with Elon, Guilford, High Point, Catawba, Lenior Rhyne, Presbyterian, Atlantic Christian, Pfeiffer and others……Cole was a legend and still is, in the Carolinas……
Here’s the notes on last night’s game from the Burlington Times-News…..
Both sides agreed that the final minute of Wednesday nightâ€™s Mid-State 3-A Conference showdown between visiting Eastern Guilford and Williams High School was the kind of pressure-packed experience that can pay dividends in the long run.
For Williams, the 43-39 victory helped burnish its credentials as a league power. For Eastern Guilford, which suffered its first league loss, it was a bitter teachable moment.
â€œWe have to play these kinds of games,â€ Eastern Guilford coach Tina Gunn said. â€œYouâ€™ve got to play these kinds of games to learn how to play these kinds of games. Williams has had a few more close games than we have and won them. That makes a huge difference.â€
