      Dougherty, Sherwood dominate Tuesday night basketball

      Dougherty surprised Crisp County on Tuesday night by sweeping the Cougars in both the boys TM and girls TM varsity games.

      A late three by Amber Ward lifted the Trojans past Crisp County and star post player Nasheema Oliver in a game that went down to the final minutes. The boys TM team led most of the way and held on late to win, 56-54. Dougherty TMs Quincy Robinson had 16 points in the victory.

      Just across town, Monroe and Albany split their matchups. The Lady Tornadoes continued their hunt for a second region championship by blitzing Albany early and often in route to a blowout win. The boys TM game was a much closer contest, with the Indians pulling out a road victory, 39-38.

      In the G.I.S.A., Deerfield-Windsor hosted Alabama TMs Glenwood School. The girls TM team played well early but lost by a score of 43-29. The boys TM team rode a big second quarter surge all the way to a 20-point victory.

      Also, Sherwood Christian hosted Byne Academy on Tuesday night. Lakisha Elder TMs girls TM team ran away from Byne in the second half to win 48-21. The boys TM team also dominated, thanks to 21 points from Greg Elder and seven assists from Chris Thomas.
