Red Devilettes not challenged by Humboldt

While the South Fulton girls had no trouble with Humboldt, the Red Devil boys had many issues with the Vikings.
The SF teams split their respective District 14A openers with H’boldt Tuesday night, the Devil-ettes winning a 46-17 laugher before the Redmen dropped a 58-43 decision in the nightcap.
South Fulton is 2-2 overall in both girls’ and boys’ play.
The Devilettes overwhelmed Humboldt from the get-go in Game 1, exploding for a 21-2 first-quarter lead. It was 34-3 at the half.
The clock ran continuously in the fourth quarter via the mercy rule.
“They didn’t handle our pressure very well at first and we made some shots in the first quarter,” SF head coach Curt Lee said of his team’s lopsided victory.
Taleeah Cross outscored Humboldt by herself, hitting for 18 points to lead South Fulton.
Laken Haley had 10 markers and Ka-Lon Martin pulled down nine rebounds.
In the boys’ contest, it was the Vikings seizing early control — up 22-9 after one and 35-18 at the intermission. The difference was 19 (47-28) with three quarters in the books.
Harrison Hawks led the Redmen with 17 and was the only SF player in double figures. Clint Wells finished with eight.
Josh Hollowell, who had a big game the last night out vs. Obion Central for South Fulton, missed the contest with a knee sprain.
South Fulton will play at Trenton on Friday, then at Gleason in a Saturday afternoon matinee — the girls’ game beginning at 1 p.m. with the boys’ to follow.
