Sometimes a little boost of confidence is just the thing a team needs. After losing three straight games, the Raiders got just that Tuesday night in a blowout 72-50 victory over district opponent Winston Academy. Oak Hill used their whole bench in a night where the starters were greatly needed against the inferior Patriots. A killer transition game for the Raiders led to a 31-8 first quarter to put Winston away early, then the Raiders were able to put in several personnel groups to get some great game situation practice. Oak Hill will be looking to capitalize on this reinvigorating victory when they hit the road this weekend to take on Manchester Academy tonight and Starkville Academy the following night.
John Wesley Williamson led Oak Hill in scoring with 15 points, most of them coming in the first period of play. Jeb Stevens and Matthew Gwathney added 11 points a piece, followed by Chance Wilson with 10. Curt Huffman and Drew Riley scored seven points each. Drake Riley and Dakota O’Bryant finished with four and three points, respectively. Riley Pierce and A.J. Iseley rounded out the scoring with two points each.
