Thursday night set the tone for what turned out to be a good week for the Johnson County Longhorns. The freshme​n team was impressive in their 64-43 win over Elizabethton inside of Ray Shoun Gymnasium.
They took an 18-7 lead in the first quarter getting five points from Sean Lewis and four apiece by Bud Icenhour and Gage Hampton. But they did have one setback.
Gabe Reece left the game early with a cut over his eye that required five stitches. But they regrouped well after that.
Jordan Edes connected for six points during the second quarter and Dawson Snyder provided four more for half of Johnson County’s 20 total. A pair of buckets by Hampton extended their halftime advantage at 38-22.
The Cyclones didn’t fare any better during the third quarter thanks to the red hot shooting of Nathan Arnold.
Arnold connected on two treys and scored eight points which extended their lead to 55-34.​
Both coaches subbed freely in the final quarter.
Hampton scored 12 points and Lewis added 11 to lead the Longhorns. Edes tallied 10 and Arnold added nine. Scoring eight apiece were Icenhour and Cayden Arnold.
Kellan Hall scored 15 for the Cyclones.
“We played well on defense and were able to push the ball up and down the floor,” said freshman head coach Trent Snyder. “I liked the way we rebounded. I thought we did well and played a complete game.”
