Telling you that the Red Hawks would leave East Hickman Tuesday night victorious would have left no one surprised.
However, if I had said they would leave with a 42 point win, 92-50, that probably would have caught many people off guard.
That is exactly what Creek Wood did to move to 8-0 on the year in district play in emphatic fashion.
It came from all sources and on both sides of the ball.
Obviously when a team scores 92, it is assumed that 1 or 2 guys had big nights scoring. This is not true of the Red Hawks who instead saw nearly everyone that played reach double digits or near it.
Rex Edmondson was the RFC Sports player of the game and it wasn’t just his play in the paint. He sunk an open three, caused turnovers outside the post, and even at one point took a ball coast to coast for an impressive lay-up and 1 opportunity.
The Red Hawks were stifling defensively and caused turnovers that they consistently turned into points.
It was by far their best performance on the year and they can only hope to follow it up Friday night against a Hickman County team that gave them alot of trouble on the road earlier this seasson.
Creek Wood came out with a win 44-41 earlier this year but it was a physical, scrappy, difficult night.’
The Red Hawks will look to carry some of the momentum from the East Hickman game into their gym Friday and move to 9-0 on the year in district play.
Their game will begin 15-30 minutes after the girls and you can hear it on 101.5 the one.
