THS sweeps Central

THOMASVILLE — The Thomasville girls had a slow start but a strong finish Friday night at Thomas County Central.

The Lady Bulldogs broke open a 13-13 first-quarter tie, built a nine-point halftime lead and cruised to a 49-37 victory over the Lady Jackets.

The Thomasville boys (1-0) completed the sweep in the nightcap with a 65-53 win in their season opener.

Thomasville’s girls (3-0) outscored Central 17-8 in the second quarter. Defense key the Lady Bulldogs’ run. Central (1-3) scored 13 in the first quarter but was held to just 24 over the final three quarters.

“We picked it up and got some big defensive stops,” Thomasville girls coach Thomas McAboy said. “I think coach (Deatrice) Hose would agree, both teams missed a lot of lay ups and free throws.

“I just think, defensively, we were pretty good.”

Khabriyah Brown had a breakaway lay up that followed a steal in the second quarter. Brown also sank a baseline jumper that gave the Lady Bulldogs a 30-21 halftime lead.

Brown, who missed last season with an ACL injury, finished with 11 points.

“It’s big having her back,” McAboy said. “She’s rehabbed hard to get back to where she’s at.”

Teammate Jaqueria Dunbar also chipped in 11 points.

Derrek Dixon led Thomasville's boys with 15 points. Henry Abrams added 10 for the Bulldogs. Matt Munroe paced Central's offense with 14 points, and teammate Chris Jones finished with 10.

Thomasville's junior varsity team defeated Central 30-28. D'Andre Hunter led Central with five points. Jaquay Tyler and Austin Bryant added four points each for the Yellow Jackets.
