Cook sweeps Thomasville

ADEL — The Cook girls basketball team knocked off Thomasville 45-36 at home Tuesday, led by 13 points from forward Elesha Foster and 10 points from Lakeyda Zackery.

The Hornets (17-6, 7-4 in Region 1-AA) led from the opening tip until the final buzzer, using timely defensive stops and good free throw shooting to close out the Bulldogs (15-9, 6-5) and avenge a Jan. 17 loss in Thomasville.

The victory is the Hornets’ fourth in a row, moving Cook past Thomasville into second place in Region 1-AA behind undefeated Pelham.

Page Jackson carried the bulk of the load offensively for Thomasville, scoring 13 points and adding five assists. Haley McNeil chipped in eight points, and Danisha Jones added eight points and two blocks for the Bulldogs, who lost their third game in the past four.

Cook withstood a furious rally from Thomasville to prevail in an overtime thriller.

TJ Rountree put on a show for the Hornets (16-7, 7-4), as the Cook point guard scored 18 points and proved to be a one-man press-breaker. Jeremiah Smith and Tra Jackson scored 17 and 13, respectively, for the Hornets, who won their fourth straight.

Thomasville (11-12, 6-5) took the lead with two minutes left in overtime, the Bulldogs first lead since 7-6 midway through the first quarter.  Jakezmin King brought the Bulldogs back from a 13-point halftime deficit, scoring all 18 of his points on six 3-pointers in the second half.

Quinton Addison added nine points, and Kenneth Hayes scored eight for Thomasville, which has alternated wins and losses in each of its past nine games.

Cook hosts Early County on Friday and Echols County on Saturday before heading into postseason play.  Thomasville visits Berrien on Friday night in the team’s regular season finales.
