CALHOUN DOWNS WEBSTER COUNTY - Red Devils Roll To 73-51 Victory


By Gaylen Duskey SPORTS EDITOR

Marcus Davis took a giant step toward his father's all-time scoring record at Calhoun County while leading the Red Devils to a 73-51 thrashing of Webster County Wednesday night.

Davis poured in 35 to move within 60 points of Tim Davis' school record 1807.

Davis was especially tough on the Highlanders from the free throw line where he canned 17 or 20 chances. He also added two three-point goals and nine rebounds.

Calhoun started sluggishly and trailed by a point at the end of the first quarter, 11-10. But in the second quarter the Red Devils seemed to hit their stride by outscoring Webster 24-11.

"We started poorly," Davis explained. "But from the second quarter on we played pretty good basketball. But we're going to have to keep playing pretty good basketball because Wirt (Friday's opponent) has improved a lot."

According to Davis, the Red Devils got a boost from Chris Sampson, who played in his first game of the season following becoming eligible at the end of the first semester. Sampson had eight points and eight rebounds for the Red Devils off the bench.

Jake Perkins had 13 points for Calhoun while adding nine rebounds and three blocked shots.

Calhoun also got seven points from Mike Batten, four from Tristan Harris and two each from Shawn Hillegas, Ryan 'Goob' Fitzwater and Zach Houchin, who had a team high seven assists.

Chad Conley and Derek Roberts played but did not score for the 11-5 Red Devils.

Webster County was led in scoring by Logan Chapman with 17.

In the junior varsity game Tommy Gerwig outscored Webster County 33-32. The rest of his teammates added 26 more, including 10 by Victor Carpenter, in the 58-32 victory.

Calhoun returns to action tonight when Wirt County comes to town.
