The Hobbton Wildcats hosted cross-county rival Midway on Tuesday night with the Raiders getting wins in all three games.
The Raider JV beat Hobbton 89-52. The Raider girls coasted to a 62-17 win over the Wildcat ladies. In the nightcap, the Raider boys took home a 79-17 win over the Wildcats.
Lady Raider coach Jennifer Naylor said, “This is the first opportunity for all our girls to contribute. Everyone played and scored at least one basket which was fantastic. That was one of our goals going into the game. We had a problem with free throws, 4 of 13. We have got to get that together for our next two games, Triton and Lakewood.”
She also praised Brittany Watson. “She is a sophomore and she has really stepped up after being moved up to varsity and starting on varsity is a big deal, especially when you stand out. She’s doing just that. She’s such a humble player. She has not asked me one time what’s her stats and she doesn’t care. She’s out there for the team.”
Watson was the leading scorer for the Raiders with 21 points and 10 rebounds. Amber Poole had 12 points and 7 assists. Rounding out the scoring leaders are Ashley Milliken and Kimberly Sublett with 9 each.
In the boys game, the Raiders scored at will and were somewhat restrained in their play. They jumped out to a 14-0 lead in the first quarter and just kept going.
Quincy Baggett scored 12 points for the Raiders, Jamarriaus Baggett and Collin Warren scored 9 each for the Raiders.
Raider coach Leonard Henry said, “It was a great victory. Tonight we were looking for execution and we got a lot of it. A lot of guys played. We have a long week this week. We have Triton Thursday and Lakewood Friday. Everybody got a chance to play and I hope we saved our legs for the next two games.”
The Wildcats travel to Union Friday night. Midway plays Triton Thursday night.
