KNOXVILLE — Farragut Middle School’s Lady Admirals turned up the defensive pressure early, cruising to a 40-13 Knox County Middle School Basketball Conference victory over the Halls Lady Demons at HMS Friday afternoon, Dec. 8.
“I thought our defense came out early and really set the tone with its pressure,” FMS girls head coach Susan Davidson said.
With fast start, juniors lead FHS past Bearden
Bearden High School’s boys basketball team kept its perfect record intact Friday night, Dec. 8. But Bulldogs head coach Jeremy Parrott was less than pleased.
“The fact that we’re finding ways to win pleases me, but we’ve still got a long way to go,” Parrott said after Bearden used a huge fourth quarter to pull away and earn a 76-53 District 4-AAA victory over rival Farragut before a near capacity crowd in FHS’s Lynn E. Sexton Gymnasium. “This is a great bunch of kids but we’ve got to start things better.
“Somewhere down the line, somebody’s going to make us pay for these lackadaisical starts. When our backs are up against the wall, we play better for some reason,” he added.
