The Southwest Guilford Cowboys hosted the Falcons of Southeast Guilford in their home opener of the 2019-2020 season. The Falcons came into tonight’s tilt looking for their first win on the young season, while the hosting Cowboys hoped to build off of their convincing defensive effort from Friday evening.
Both teams came out and matched each other shot for shot. After trading baskets for the first several possessions it was 8-8. The Cowboys started to wake up from their fog and ended the opening stanza on 11-2 run as the first quarter closed at 19-10.
The second frame had the Cowboys start to play more effective defense which led to transition baskets and the lead expanded until the first half closed with the Cowboys up 46-21.
The Falcons did a good job of slowing the Cowboys down and not letting the game from getting out of hand as the second half had both teams trade small spurts and runs. By the time the third frame closed it was 68-41.
The final frame was more of the same back and forth and the game closed with Cowboys winning 82-52.
The Falcons were paced by Zach Friday with 18 and Trajan Green with 13 points. The Cowboys were led by Bryce Causey with 27 and Jeremy Mull with 22 points.
Southwest moves to 2-0 on the young season and plays next on Saturday afternoon against Montgomery Central at 12:30 in the Bobby Martin Classic at RJ Reynolds.
