Red Devils Sweep Warriors
November 28, 2012By Denis Vass of Graham High School
The Red Devils traveled to Elon tonight to take on the Warriors of Western Alamance. They walked out having completed a 3-game sweep.
The JV boys won their second straight game for Coach Kyle Ward, who took over the JV team after previously coaching the varsity girls. They won 56-47.
In the girls game, one day after seemingly not being able to hit any baskets, the Lady Devils lit up the scoreboard the first half enroute to a 67-43 blasting of the Lady Warriors. BrieAna Snipes led the Lady Devils with 16 points. Graham's coach Melinda Goodson picked up her first win as the head coach for the Lady Devils. Red Devil faithful hope many more are to come.
Graham's varsity boys employd their pressure defense and thoroughly befuddled the host Warriors, as they sprinted out to a 41-17 halftime lead and never looked back. Graham rolled 71-48 to notch their second win.
The Red Devils rained down 12 3-point shots, one night after hitting 11 against Eastern Alamance. Kendall Patterson and Michal Ratliff led Graham with 15 points each, while Trent Torain added 10. Troy Bowden hit 3-3 point baskets for 9 points.
Graham hosts the Bulldogs of Williams on Friday evening.
