There were a load of Hornets in the house at the NEST over off of Friendway Drive last night and the Southwest Guilford Cowboys and their head coach Guy Shavers came in and stole one from Coach Wade and his Hornets…..
We had Hornet help in the house and they filed this report and we are always glad to get first-hand, bird’s eye views, of the games and we will print reports and photos that you send us….
Let’s head back out to the school where I once dunked a doughnut through a waste basket out behind Mr. Frazier’s shop class while Mr. Payne was playing defense with a crowbar….
Southwest Guilford 54
Western Guilford 48
First win for Southwest and first loss for Western Guilford – strange game as in it looked like Southwest had more athletes then Western yet Western was undefeated and Southwest had not won. Highlights were Sophomore Braxton Day was the most athletic man in the building, he was jumping all over the place, great potential here. Point guard Greg Bridges sealed the Cowboys first victory going 8 for 8 from free throw line down the stretch in the fourth quarter, when Southwest outscored Western 27-15 to notch their first win of the year.
Western looks like possibly the number two team in the conference next to Dudley. They are deep and have many weapons.
