THE FLORALA NEWS- WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 11, 2009 li , , &apos; " ' STRINGER OF FISH- Joshua Grissett and Zac Seay went fishing at a private pond Saturday with Joshua's "Paw Paw" Joel Gomillion. They caught a a good mess of fish. When the boys were asked where they caught the fish, the only thing they would say was, "In the corner of their mouth." Joshua is the son of Joanna Holley of Florala. Paxton boys improve to 21-4 by Patrick Casey Dan Geoghagan exploded for 26 points as Paxton com- pleted a season sweep of Walton with a 65-49 victory over the Braves in the regu- lar season finale for both teams. and high percentage shoot- ing to move to 21-4 as they head into district tourna- ment play. Zack Vickers and Dem- etrius Moore scored 18 and 16 points respectively as the Bobcats held the lead from the outset. The Bob- cats, who are playing with- out starters Shaq Jackson and Colby Forehand due to wrist injuries, hit 12-of-18 free throws while commit- ting only eight turnovers in posting the win. Walton has lost three games in a row, but the Braves played one of their best games of the year on Tuesday night when Marl- anna edged the Braves at Walton 65-64. Paxton got off to an excel- lent start when Geoghagan canned four long distance bombs to propel the Bob- cats to a 24-14 lead after one quarter that they would never relinquish. Walton hung around for most of the contest as Tar- rell Bramlet scored 16 points to keep the Braves in the game, but no other Braves player hit double figures as the Bobcats used their size Paxton girls claim district title junior center Erin Walker to win games. Walker put up 22 points in the district clincher while teammates Stevie Davidson added 14 and Krysten Cuchens had 10. Paxton turned the game into a rout with a 23-8 ad- vantage in the third quar- ter that saw Paxton hold a 53-31 lead entering the final quarter of play that led to the final margin of 60-37. The Bobcats, won all three meetings with Rocky Bayou and will open the Class A playoffs on Thurs- day night at 7 p.m. when they host Bethlehem (18-8). The Wildcats knocked off Paxton in November in Bethlehem, but now have to by Patrick Casey Saturday night was a good night to be a girl's bas- ketball player or fan. The Paxton Bobcats won their match-up in the dis- trict championship game to earn the right to host first round state playoff games on Thursday night. The Paxton Bobcats had five as the magic number and defeated Rocky Bayou at Central High 60-37 for their fifth consecutive dis- trict championship in Class A. Paxton (19-6) used a fa- miliar philosophy to take out Rocky Bayou. The Bobcats played shut-down defense and pounded the ball into ALA-SCAN AUTOMOTIVE POLICE IMPOUNDS! 1998 Honda Civic $600! 1995 Jeep Cherokee $750! More cars Avail- able from $500!

Paxton reached the dis- trict title game after squash- ing Laurel Hill 61-23 in the semi-final on Friday night. Walker led the way with 16 points while Emmalee In- finger scored 11 and Stevie Davidson had 10. Tourney notes: The sec- ond round of the playoffs will be held on Tuesday, February 17, and the region finals will be on Saturday, February 21. Paxton faces a Bethlehem squad on Thursday that beat the Bobcats 61-58 in mid-November. I wouldn't want to be the team that had to come to Paxton for a rematch, so the Wildcats had better bring their A- game in the opening round. District 2 was stronger than Paxton's district this year, so the Bobcats are likely in for a fight, with Graceville almost assuredly getting a chance to host the winner of this contest on Tuesday after they dispatch Rocky Bayou. A win over Bethle- hem gives Paxton six consec- utive 20 Win seasons for the program, and the Bobcats are 66-5 the last six years at home. The Bobcats should win at home, but that trip to Graceville (23-2) may not be apleasant experience on Tuesday. CONTINUED mium siding, windows or roofs. Save hundred of dollars. All credit accepted.

Bowers make consecu- tive three-point shots to tie the contest in the final two minutes of the game. The Bulldogs size,' like Paxton, gave Walton trouble on the boards as the Bulldogs managed to hit just enough free throws to avoid the up- set. Walton's Paul McClure took the ball the length of the floor in the final seven seconds of the game, but his. bank shot high off the glass came off too hard and deflected off the rim as time expired. McClure provided Walton (14-11) with 12 points while high 10 points in the loss. Paxton had a .little bet- ter luck against Freeport on Thursday as Zack Vickers scored 31 points and Dem- etrius Moore added 22 as the Bobcats avoided a road upset with a 64-57 winver Freeport. The Bobcats had only three players score in the contest as' Tyler Garrett added 11 points to complete the Bobcats scoring. Game notes: The Bobcats are likely to meet Central in the semi-final round on Friday and will be a big fa- vorite to advance to the final on their home floor on Sat- urday.
