Neighboring schools battled for the area middle school championship in Warren County Thursday.
The Warren County Middle School Screaming Devils defeated the Thomson-McDuffie Middle School Bulldogs 72-60 at Warren County High School.
“Warren County was just the better team, and we were out-rebounded,” said TMMS head coach Clifton Belton. “And to be quite honest we had no answer for their Kenvonte Brinkley. The kid can play.”
Brinkley led the Devils with 29 points, followed by Enoch Grier with 16.
Thomson was led by Tydrekis Braswell with 28 points. Quay Hill was next with 10 points.
While the two teams had not met in the regular season, which both teams finished at 12-2, Warren County head coach Uriah Myrick said his team was the underdog.
“I credit home court advantage and the fact that even though we still were considered the underdog to many, the players wanted to prove them wrong,” said the coach.
While he didn’t prepare any differently for Thomson, Myrick said the Devils worked hard on fundamentals and defense. In thanking a former coach for his contributions during the season, the coach thanked the team for a great year.
