Friday, November 17, 2006

YELLVILLE-SUMMIT -- Coach Brent Compton's Bobcat senior boys teams started its season off right Tuesday night with a 62-24 victory over the Panthers.

Senior High Boys

16-6, 22-16, 45-24, 62-24

"We came out strong. Brad Newberry had 10 points the first quarter," Compton said. "We were aggressive and in sync. But the second quarter Brad got in foul trouble and we subbed and they caught up some."

Berryville led 16-6 after one quarter, then just 22-16 at halftime. But a focus on defense the second half turned the tide and the Bobcats led 45-24 after three periods.

"The third quarter we turned on the defense and they wore out," Compton said. "We were more physical."

Although it was the first win of the season for the team, it was Compton's 95th as a head coach as he approaches the coveted 100th win plateau.

Scoring- BV- Newberry- 16, 4 3's; Cody Curtis- 12; Geoff West- 9; Gared Jennings- 8; Dough Marley- 5; 4's- Cheston Jennings, Clayton Taff; 2's- Nathan Mahan, Will Marley. Y-S- Clayton Chapman- 11.
