Eagles Round Up the Florence Buffaloes 50-39

by Mike Organ

After playing an energetic game Thursday, the Eagles played a rather lethargic game Saturday afternoon when they defeated Florence 50-39. The game had a wider score separation potential, as Lexington had a 20 point lead when Coach Williams pulled his starters, just as Florence staged a comeback of sorts. Florence got the deficit down to eight points just before Lexington scored enough to get the margin back into double digits.

Lexington was ahead 24-9 at halftime. Lexington continued to lead 41-25 at the end of the third quarter. Jason Washington and Eriq Mitchell both scored 18 points to lead the Eagles to victory.

Lexington is now 2-1 in district play. Their next game will be Tuesday night in Cameron (after press time). The Eagles beat Cameron significantly in the Cameron Tourney The Yoe had not had a formal practice since winning the state championship in football on December 20th.
