(February 6th, 2015) – PIONEER: Koby Biddix hit 4 threes on Fayette’s way to a 57-33 victory at North Central.
The senior wasn’t the only Fayette boy to knock down a triple, as Alec Bost, Tharyn Colegrove, and Joel Smith could make that claim as well. Of course, North Central held their own in the three-point shooting affair as well. Senior Josh Swayer made 3 of his three-point attempts. His classmate, Jordan Reeves connected on another pair of threes as well. Ethan Douglass and Steven Williams each added a three-pointer also.
With all of this long distance shooting taking place, it’s a bit surprising that the contest start off in a low scoring manner. Fayette came out of the opening quarter with a 12-11 lead. Upping their intensity on both ends of the floor, the Eagles from Fulton County were able to pull away to a 32-17 advantage at the half.
Coming out of the locker room, Fayette picked up where they left off before the half. Adding another 14 points to their total, the visiting Eagles were able to hold North Central to 9 points. Fayette went on to outscore the Williams County Eagles 11-7 in the fourth quarter, completing the 24 point victory.
Biddix served as the leading scorer for Fayette, putting up 15 points. Tristan Bates, a monster inside for which North Central had no answer, contributed 14 points to the win as well. Joel Smith added 6 points.
