THOMASVILLE — The Brookwood and Georgia Christian boys basketball teams did not produce a masterpiece Thursday night.

However, the Warriors committed fewer miscues down the stretch and defeated the Generals 43-40. Georgia Christian used a late rally to overtake Brookwood in the girls game, 47-44.

Both Brookwood and Georgia Christian rested their starters in the boys game with key region games tonight. The result was a sloppily played game. The Generals had 31 turnovers, 12 coming in the fourth quarter as they coughed up a 35-29 lead.

Brookwood reserve forward Charles Scott led the Warrior charge, with six of his 15 points coming in the fourth quarter. Scott gave Brookwood the lead for good on a bucket and free throw with 2:14 left.

“He’s coming along,” Brookwood coach Brad Piazza said. “He hit the game-winning shot the other night and he’s really doing good things right now.”

Brookwood’s starting five played together for less than a quarter, with junior forward Ashton Thomas doing most of the damage. Thomas scored all eight of his points in the first half, including consecutive baskets to push Brookwood ahead 14-13 with 5:40 remaining in the second quarter.

The Warriors’ starting five did not play the last quarter and a half following a dismal start to the third.

“We talked about it, that when you’re in there to play like it means something,” Piazza said. “We can’t accept (not hustling.)

“We can fix anything you do as long as you play hard.”

In the girls game, it was Brookwood that faltered late. The Warriors led 32-26 entering the fourth, but a loss of composure led to a loss.

Brookwood committed five turnovers in the quarter along with a slew of rushed shots.

“We’ve been talking about keeping our composure and we lost that,” Brookwood coach Todd Thomas said. “I told them to be patient and we go down and shoot within two seconds.

“It is so frustrating when you have so many talented players, but they play one on five. When we play together, it is beautiful to watch.”

The Generals trailed 42-38 with less than a minute left before capitalizing on Brookwood’s miscues. Georgia Christian pulled within two on a basket from Billi Jean Black. After Brookwood guard Logan Petrey missed the front end of a 1-and-1, Cayla Bridges pushed the Generals ahead after hitting a layup and drawing a foul on Brookwood center Logan Taylor. Bridges’ free throw gave the Generals a 43-42 lead with 0:26 left.

Brookwood fumbled away its next chance and its last chance fell short when a 3-point shot by Logan Petrey was partially blocked.

with 0:13 left.

Taylor led the Warriors with 21 points.

“It was senior night and I knew she was fired up,” Thomas said. “I told her with her size advantage, she should have a field day and she really did.”
