On tonight’s game at Southeast Guilford from Falcon 1:
Falcons win in what was the best girls game played at SE in many years.Very proud of the girls and how about the football guys out supporting them!! This is how you build tradition!!
Go Falcons!!

End of 1st Q:Jacksonville 14, SEG 10…Halftime:Jacksonville 24, SEG 23…End of 3rd Q:SEG 41, Jacksonville 38…Final:SEG 55, Jacksonville 51…

SEG scoring: Kennedi Simmons 28 points, Raven Preston 14 points, Kristen Roberts 10 points, Sydney Roberts 3 points…
Jacksonville scoring:Nya Mitchels 16 points, Mia Tucker 10, Kelly Luck 8, India Hill 6, Elizabeth Kellum 6, Breana Wilmore 3, Makayla Gidrey 2……

Tons of size on the Jacksonville squad and the Cardinals had very quick guards…Tucker and Hill both very quick…SEG came out and ran and they were able to run right by the Jacksonville big girls and SEG got right to the basket….A whale of game from SEG’s Kennedi Simmons and SEG got plenty of solid minutes from their freshmen…Preston, Sydney Roberts and Jessica Hopkins all gave their all and that’s all there is to it..

SEG led early in the game, in fact the Falcons were up 8-2 and off-and-running…Then Jax made their run and grabbed an 18-10 lead over the Falcons…It looked like Jax was on their way, but SEG said, “No Way”….Behind Simmons, Kristen Roberts and Raven Preston the Falcons would not give up….Preston got saddled with 2 fouls and had to sit down early 2nd Q, but she came back in, and she did not lose a beat…SEG fed off of Simmons, both Roberts, Preston, Shunte Bethea, Emilee Liggins, Shekinah Cooke, Jessica Hopkins, Gabby McGough and all nine of the Falcons, were pushing hard for the victory, all night long…..

SEG had nine three’s back on Saturday night and they had at least six in the win tonight, over Jacksonville….Give SEG the three and they will find a way to hit it….We had Kennedi Simmons going 7-8 at the free throw line and as a team, SEG was right there at, 9-14 from the foul line and those Simmons made free throws were just as big as those Simmons driving layups and three’s….

If you liked this game, you can like it and live it again, now….The SEG-Jacksonville game is now playing at GreensboroSports Radio…It is a little bit wild and if you are not a basketball fan, you may not be able to handle it, but give it a try/click now, at GreensboroSports Radio

This Southeast Guilford girls basketball team is sort of following in the footsteps of the SEG football team, winning big games and going for the state title….The SEG boys football team was at the game tonight and SEG girls basketball coach Rachel Clark was very excited about the Falcons’ football team being there and was very appreciative of their support…Check out tonight’s exciting game now, at GreensboroSports Radio…..

    Great group of kids there at NWG….We have followed them closely the past couple of seasons and will never forget three years ago and the last second loss and the joy of them winning it all last year in Chapel Hill, in the Dean E. Smith Center…

    NWG went on a 10-0 to close the game, never led in the ball game until there was 1:07 left in the game, and out-scored the opposition 17-4 in the 4th quarter and they had put together the same 17-4 4th quarter run the week before in the Regional Finals…

    This group of NWG Lady Vikings gave us a lot of great memories, and thank-you for the ride…..

    For Ragsdale, I would say their best days are yet to come..Tamara Rogers is my point guard of the future coming in off of the middle school team there at Jamestown, and the Tigers are just getting warmed up good…

    Don’t ask me how, but I had a hunch about this Southeast Guilford girls basketball team this year…

    I had the same hunch about the football team before they went on their run…

    Again, not sure what it was, but here we go again……

  • Andy Durham said,

    That Callie Scheier is a gamer….Saw here at SEG vs. Ragsdale on MLK Day and that is when Ragsdale suffered their first loss of the season and it was to Scheier and West Forsyth…

    I think she is going to High Point and makes you think of the Jon Scheyer name from Duke, when you see Callie Scheier…
