ere minus three varsity starters but that didnt stop them from playing one of their best games of the season. A trio of reserves helped lead them to a 37-25 conference win over Chuckey-Doak on Friday at home.
Head Coach Devin Shaw was elated with the victory. He praised the kids that stepped in and filled those roles.
Will Henson, Michael Oxendine and Petie Pavusek stepped up big and played well, said Shaw. They all knew their roles, to go in there and play great defense and let the offense come to them. Andrew Dugger and Darren Cunningham led the team and played well too. It was a much needed win for us.
The game was tied 11-11 at the half but a strong second half by Johnson County proved to be the difference.
Will Henson and Clayton Cross scored four points apiece in the third and Darren Cunningham accounted for five in the fourth.
Henson led the Longhorns scoring with 10. Cunningham added nine points and eight rebounds. Cross accounted for six and Petie Pavusek tallied five.
Andrew Dugger grabbed 10 rebounds in the win.
Maupin recorded a game high 12 points for the Black Knights.
