COLONIAL: Patriots Sweep Tigers In Hoops....

Summer Price poured in 27 points and Patrick Henry survived a slow start to dispose of J.R. Tucker 53-40 Tuesday night to stay unbeaten at 2-0 in the Colonial District, 4-0 overall.  Amber Lee chipped in 9 points and 16 rebounds and baskets at key times by India Coles, and the Pinder twins, Tyler and Jasmine, helped keep the Tigers at bay.

Jessica Lee's basket with 4:57 left in the 3rd move Tucker to within two at 33-31 before the Patriots went on an 8-0 run in just two minutes to create a gap that Tucker would not dissolve.

Patrick Henry finally enjoys their home opener this Friday when they face John Marshall at 6pm.

In boys play, Lucas Pienkowski and William Holman each contributed 15 points as Patrick Henry subdued Tucker 49-37, overcoming a cold shooting first half with relentless defense and occasional full-court pressure. Khalil Mock, who scored 30 points in the win Saturday night over Lee-Davis, was held to 8 points but contributed several very timely rebounds, especially in the second half, to keep Tucker from ever mounting a serious comeback.

Now 1-1 in the Colonial and 3-1 overall, the PH boys also finally get their home opener on Friday, as John Marshall comes to Ashland for a 7:30 contest.  The Justices are favorites with Thomas Jefferson to win the Colonial, and Patrick Henry's only loss came opening night eight days ago to TJ, 93-55 on the road.
