The Eagles’ Tyler Gallimore scored 10 of his team-high 12 points on the free-throw line Tuesday night, going 10-of-12 from the charity stripe to help Oak Mountain defeat rival Vestavia, 37-32.
Four of Gallimore’s free-throws came late in the fourth quarter to help the Eagles seal the win.
Despite coming away with a victory, OMHS head coach Jerry North said he was
not pleased with his team’s performance.
&uot;I don’t think we played very well at all,&uot; North said. &uot;We’ll take an ugly win though.&uot;
North credited the Rebels’ defense, which held the high powered Eagles to one of their lowest scoring outputs of the season.
&uot;They’re one of the best defenses in Alabama as far as I’m concerned,&uot; he said.
Thomas Nordyke added eight points for the Eagles on offense.
On defense, Oak Mountain held Vestavia to only eight points each quarter, which helped move them to victory and an 18-2 overall record this season.
The week-long Hoops for Hope fundraiser, sponsored by both Oak Mountain and Vestavia Hills high school to benefit the American Cancer Society, wrapped up at halftime of Tuesday night’s game.
Over $10,000 dollars was raised in a week by students at both schools and the local community.
