T’was a week before Christmas and all through the season, many have tried but the Cowboys remain unbeaten. They hit the road across town to Page for a fight. To see if they could stay perfect for the season on this cold winter night.
Now enough of this silly prose
And let’s describe how the game goes:
The game opened up with the Cowboys and Pirates trading blows. Page took a 10-8 lead midway through the frame. Southwest then took charge with a 10-0 run to close the frame at 18-10.
The second-quarter had Southwest build the lead up to as many as 16 at 32–16 with under four minutes to play in the half. But the Pirates responded strong with a run of their own closing to halftime deficit two 34–24.
The third-quarter opened up similar to the second with the Cowboys once again building the lead all the way to 48–29 midway through the stanza. And once again the Pirates responded with a run of their own to close the third at 54–41.
The fourth quarter once again at the Cowboys take control and push the margin over 20 points as the bench came in and finish the game out for the Cowboys at 80–56.
The Pirates were paced by Brandon Talton with 16. Southwest was led by a total team effort from top to bottom. Kaymon Mitchell had (19, 6 Rebs, 3 Stls), Kameron Langley had (12, 8 Asts, 6 Rebs, 4 Stls), Orlando Smith had (11, 4 Asts, 2 Rebs, 2 Stls), and Keyshaun Langley with (10, 4 Asts, 3 Asts, 2 Stls). Southwest stays perfect on the year moving to 9-0.
