Calera easily gets past Dora

After a couple of tough losses in the Sneak Pete’s Thanksgiving Classic at Vestavia Hills, Calera (2-3) bounced back in impressive fashion by taking down Dora High School 71-46 on Monday, Nov. 28. In both wins this season the Eagles have scored 70 plus points.

Oak Mountain improves to 5-1

The Oak Mountain Eagles improved to 5-1 after defeating 5A Mortimer Jordan 49-32. The Eagles have jumped out to the good start thanks to the play on the defensive end. They have held teams to less than 40 points in four of their five wins on the season and are only giving up 32.7 points per game. Kris Hutchins led the Eagles with 15 points, three steals and four assists. Will Stephenson and Josh Pierce added 14 and 11 points for Oak Mountain, respectively.

Warriors lose third straight

Thompson (2-4) lost its third straight game after falling to 6A Hillcrest-Tuscaloosa 54-46 on Monday, Nov. 28. The Warriors have struggled on the offensive end of the floor so far this year with their best offensive performance being a 58 points against Oak Mountain. Cheatham has a young team that is still trying to figure out the coach’s new system, but the season is young.
