T’ville improves to .500 with win over Carrier Mills

By Steve Dunford 

THOMPSONVILLE –  With a minute and some change left on the clock in the first quarter, Thompsonville coach Pete Gordon switches from a full court man to man to a 2-3 zone.  The Tigers were down 14-8 at that point.

T’ville then goes on a 33-9 run over the next 13 minutes.  They also go on a 10-0 run to close out a 64-37 win last night over Carrier Mills at William H. “Doc” Harvey gym last night.

Sophomore Corbin Fitch led the Tigers in scoring again with 22 points, Tyson Kessler added 17 with seven assists and seven steals, Anthoney Darge eight, Trey Bybee four, Grady Furlow and Jake Dixon three, Zack Kirkman, Bryson Chullen and Reed Raubach two, and Tyler Jones added a free throw for the Tigers.

Rostin Lewis was the only Wildcat in double figures with 11 points, Andrew Lollis added nine and Billy Lewis added eight.

Coach Gordon had this to say about last nights win.  It was a  slow start but played well as the game unfolded.  We took care of the ball better with only 12 turnovers. I think our size showed up, as we out rebounded them 40-26.

Carrier Mills fell to (1-6)(0-1).  The will host the Hardin County Cougars on Friday night in a GEC conference matchup.

Thompsonville improves to (3-3)(2-1) on the season.  They will host their former Mid South conference foes, the Webber Township Trojans.  Webber picked up a nice 56-53 win at Odin last night.

The Tigers are seeking to revenge a blowout win against the Trojans in the Christopher Turkey Tournament.  This is what Coach Gordon had to say about the rematch. “Webber is going to be a difficult game for us, but we are excited to get a chance to play better than the first time we played them. There is plenty of room for improvement.”

If the Lord is willing, I will be at Doc Harvey gym on Friday night covering this game.
