The Cowboys hit the road tonight to face off against the Eagles of East Forsyth.

The Eagles snapped their losing skid with a dominant win over Ragsdale on Wednesday night. The Cowboys hoped to start another skid for the Eagles while maintaining a perfect season. In their previous match-up from 3 weeks ago, these conference foes battled for a half, but the Eagles couldn’t keep up with the Cowboys for a full game as Southwest pulled away for a convincing victory at home.

Would the weight of maintaining of perfection be too much for these young Cowboys?

The Cowboys opened the game with a splash as a block on the defensive side led to an open transition 3 pointer to take the early lead. Southwest held the Eagles scoreless the opening two and a half minutes, going up 7-0. A three ball by the Eagles put them on the board at 7-3 with 5:25 left in the quarter. Southwest kept pushing, going up as much as 16-4, before a late 4-0 spurt to close the quarter at 16-8.

The second quarter was more Cowboy defense as they opened up on a 10-0 run at 26-8 at the 4:22 mark. A made free-throw got the Eagles on the board at 3:49. Another 7-0 spurt by the Cowboys took the score to 33-9 with 1:30 to go in the half. The Eagles managed a 5-0 spurt before a 3 point play ended the opening half at 36-14.

The second half was ugly all around. The teams traded blows up and down the floor as the game became physical, sloppy, and discombobulated. By the close of the frame, the margin was the same at 55-33.

The final frame was just as poorly played as the third. The Eagles took advantage of the Cowboys’ inconsistent play and chipped away at the margin, getting as close as 12, but Southwest managed to keep them at bay. In the end, the Cowboys pulled away to win a tough, ugly, physical conference game at 77-54.

The Eagles were led by Madison Cone at 12. The Cowboys were led by Kameron Langley with (26, 7 Rebs, 4 Stls, 3 Asts), Kobe Langley with (21, 5 Rebs, 2 Blks, Ast, Stl), and Keyshaun Langley with (14, 8 Asts, 5 Stls, 4 Rebs). The Cowboys move on is 22-0 overall and 8-0 in the Piedmont Triad 4A Conference.
