|The South Fulton boys applied enough pressure to squeeze the air out of Bradford. |
The local Red Devils controlled the tempo of Saturday’s contest en route to a 65-54 triumph.
In the opener, SF was not near as fortunate as it fell 48-39.
With the decisions, the South Fulton boys are now 9-11 (3-7 in District 14A) on the season. The Devilettes now have an 11-8 overall worksheet and 5-5 record in league play.
Both SF squads return to the hardwood on Tuesday evening at Lake County.

South Fulton wore B’ford out with its pressure, affording the locals the chance to get away in the fourth quarter.
“We kept the tempo like we wanted and in our favor the whole game,” South Fulton boys’ coach Wes Miller said. “We pressured them all four quarters and, in the end, I think that made the difference. “
Jordan Davis poured in a SF-high 23 points, while Montre Lewis also hit in twin figures with 16.
Kendall Greer and Kyle Clouse both finished a tally shy of double digits with nine each. Greer also had eight rebounds

South Fulton suffered from the field on Saturday, hitting just 9-of-42 offerings at B’ford’s Devil Den.
Taleeah Cross was the lone SF player in twin figures with 10 points, while Ka-Lon Martin added nine and Laken Haley offered eight.
“We had a tough job scoring all around,” SF girls’ coach Curt Lee said. “We shot the ball poorly all night, but still made a run at them in the fourth quarter and got it down to six.
“Then, a couple untimely turnovers forced us to start fouling.”
South Fulton was behind 12-8 after a quarter, 23-15 at halftime and 35-24 with three periods complete.
“We haven’t shown any consistency this season,” Lee said. “We have to get some scoring out of other players than the three that give us points every night.”
