H.S. HOOPS: Patriots roll; Lady Patriots fall short against Monticello

RICHMOND — The Patriots used a big second-half surge to overwhelm Pineville, but the Lady Patriots couldn’t come up with a win on Homecoming at Model Laboratory School.

The Patriots had five players in double figures and cruised to a 85-61 win Friday in Richmond. The Lady Patriots fell behind early and suffered a 62-43 loss.

Model 85, Pineville 61

The Patriots had just a 10-point lead at halftime (42-32), then pulled away for an easy win Friday over Pineville (10-6).

Model out-scored the Mountain Lions, 29-11, in the third quarter and never looked back, rolling to a 85-61 win. Senior A.J. Hammons had 21 points and hit five-of-seven three pointers as the Patriots (14-3) won their eighth-straight game.

Anthony Gerald had 15 points (two-of-four from three-point range), Zack Rice-Gordon had 13 points, Brendan Hill had 13 points and Jon Ballard added 11 points for Model.

“They were pretty tired at halftime,” Model coach Wes Scarberry said. “We went back to our press and opened the second half on a 10-0 run.”

Rice-Gordon and Hammons both had two fouls in the first half as Model had to go to its bench.

Rice-Gordon scored eight points in the third quarter as the Patriots cranked up the defensive pressure and really took control. Model led 71-43 after three quarters.

Caleb Kincaid came off the bench to score six points.

The Patriots are back in action at 7:30 p.m. today against Western Hills. Model defeated the Wolverines 86-76 last month in Richmond.

Monticello 62, Lady Patriots 43

The Lady Patriots couldn’t overcome a slow start and suffered a loss Friday at home to Monticello.

The Lady Trojans had a 13-4 lead after the first quarter and went on to pick up a 62-43 victory.

Darrian Botts led Model with 23 points on 10-of-19 shooting. Kasi Schneid had 13 points. Hayley Hunt added four points while Emily Jackson and Charity Mack each had two points. Model was six-of-20 from the free throw line and was one-of-seven from three-point range.

Monticello led 31-16 at halftime.

With the loss, the Lady Patriots fall to 4-13 on the season.
