HCMS Takes Three of Four from Bremen, Mt. Zion

The middle school basketball teams played at home both Monday and Tuesday versus Bremen and Mt. Zion and the results were positive.

In Monday’s action the girls faced off against Bremen and dominated at both ends of the floor winning 41-22. “This was the first time all year we looked like a basketball team,” Coach Kathy Scott said after the game.

Kemaiya Brewer led the way in the first half scoring 12 points as the girls were up 24-13 at the break. Top scorers for the girls were Brewer with 14 points, Alyssa Cosper with 10 points, and Erica Emory with six points.

The boys game was much closer throughout but the Blue Devils came out on top 50-45. The Braves rallied form an early 7-0 deficit to take a second quarter lead but trailed by eight points at halftime.

Austin Barron scored 10 in the first half including two 3-pointers. The shot of the game came in the second half when Collin Nutt tossed a fall away hook shot into the basket while facing completely away from the hoop.

Despite closing an eight point Devil lead to just two at the end of the third quarter the fourth belonged to Bremen who finished with the five point win.

Barron led the way with 15 points followed by Nutt with nine points and Lashon Echols with seven points. Tuesday night the Braves swept Mt. Zion with the girls coming out on top 48-19 and the boys topping the Eagles 45-29.

HCMS returns to action Thursday afternoon when they play host to Villa Rica (Girls tip 4:30).
