PAGE 6 -THE NEWS-DEMOCRAT, FRIDAY, MARCH 5, 2010 McEwen High S00'00hool boys update Big Fourth Quarter Separates Warriors from Irish By Gary Moore Sophomore Garrett Mullinicks went 9-9 from the free throw line, including a clutch 7-7 down the stretch, to tie for team high honors and help propel the McEwen Warriors to a 54-37 vic- tory over the Houston County Fighting Irish in District play action from McEwen gymnasium on February 18. As a result, the Warriors advanced to the semifinals held at Jo Byrns. Senior Walt Andrews proved the focal point of- fensively early for Coach Phil Ross's squad. He responded with 9 first period points to pace the hosts to a 14-7 advantage after one. The visitors tried to lim- it Walt's ability to score in the second but, as has been the case throughout the season, the rest of the team picked it up. Tanner Wilson led with 5 while Eli Spivey and Garrett added 4 each to help send McEwen into the locker room with a 30-18 lead. A chill came over the Warriors in the third as they shot a frigid 2-15 from the floor, 0-8 from behind the arc. Mean- while, Houston County managed 4-13 allowing them to pull within 8 en- tering the final frame. Fortunately for the Warriors, they were able to regain their shooting touch from 15 feet away. McEwen got to the line 17 times converting 13 lead by Garrett and Tyler Wilson (4-5). McEwen - G Mul- linicks 15 points, 6 re- bounds, 3 steals, 1 block; Ta Wilson 8 points, 2 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 steals; Ty Wilson 6 pints; P Mullinicks 4 points, 2 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 steals; Spivey 6 points, 1 rebound, 3 steals, 1 block; Andrews 15 points, 9 re- bounds, 1 assist; Hooper 2 rebounds; Long 1 re- bound, 1 assist Houston County - Hammond 6, Kelcher 6, Featherstone 5, Barnes 3, Skelton 6, Roper 9 McEwen Advances to the Finals with Win Over White House The White House-Heri- tage Patriots outscored the McEwen Warriors in three of the four quarters of the District 10A semi- final contest played Feb- ruary 19 in Cedar Hill. Fortunately for Warriors fans, a 16-7 McEwen run in the second quar- ter gave them an advan- tage, which the Patriots couldn't overcome as the Warriors moved into the Championship game by virtue of a hard fought 30-28 victory. It was a struggle for each team early as shot after shot clanged off the rim. McEwen limped to a 2-11 effort, with Tyler and Tanner Wilson pro- viding the only baskets. Heritage fared little better with only three attempts finding the mark result- ing in a 6-4 margin for the Patriots after one. McEwen's defense con- tinued to excel, holding their opponents to only 7 second quarter points. On the other hand, the Warriors were able to im- prove somewhat on their first period performance. Seven players put points in the book led by Eli Spivey's 4. Blain Hooper hit the only 3 made bY Coach Phil Ross's squad while Garrett Mullinicks, Walt Andrews, and Pat- rick Mullinicks added baskets. Tanner and Tyler combined to go 3-4 from the line as well resulting in a 20-13, McEwen lead at the break. Thankfully, that sec- ond quarter run was able to hold up.

Standing in their way stood regular season champ Clarksville Academy a team that had beaten the Warriors twice this season. Both teams knew the importance of getting off to a good start and unfortunately, that hon- or went to the Cougars. They raced to a 14-5 lead over the cold shoot- ing Warriors thus making McEwen play catch up the entire evening, some- thing that is most difficult against the talented Cou- gars. McEwen battled throughout but couldn't overcome the slow start and fell to Clarksville Academy by a score of 61-44. Malcolm Smith scored 6 of his game high 19 in the first while Travis Rus- sell and Heath Dyer con- nected from downtown to spark the Cougars to an early 9 point advantage. Meanwhile, McEwen suffered through 2-9 shooting putting them in a precarious position. Tanner Wilson had 5 points in the second, in- cluding a three, while Blain Hooper and Walt Andrews added baskets to help the Warriors play more evenly with CA but the Cougars were able to match McEwen behind Smith who had 7 and Miller Hyams who added 4. The third period proved the most productive for the Warriors. Patrick Mullinicks had 6 of his team high 11 while Eli Spivey poured in 2 field goals and Wilson knocked down a three. Sadly, it wasn't enough to offset the powerful Cougars. Martin Smith went for 8 in the period to pace a 21 point explosion, which gave CA a 48-31 margin. McEwen tried to rally behind big baskets by Blain and Patrick plus a field goal from TJ. Long. In addition, Walt and Gar- rett Mullinicks combined to go 4-4 from the line but the Cougars wouldn't be denied. They hit an ex- ceptional 1 l- 12 from the charity stripe down the stretch to win the District 10A tournament champi- onship.
