Brindlee Mountain High School’s basketball teams found out last Thursday that Fyffe has some pretty good roundballers, too.

Played one day early because Fyffe had a football playoff game scheduled for Friday, all three Lions teams were rolled by the Red Devils.

The boys varsity team has no football players on its nine-player roster but the school still wanted its students to be able to attend the football game, which Fyffe won 35-6 over Winston County.

In the varsity boys game, the Red Devils won 103-26. The Lions made 3-of-13 free throws and hit three 3-pointers. Fyffe sank 15-of-20 free throws and made 10 3’s. Seven of Fyffe’s nine players sank a 3.

John Paul Taymon and Jacob Shaver led Brindlee Mountain with six points each.

The varsity girls game went to Fyffe as well, 60-15. Karlie Westbrook made the Lady Lions’ only two 3’s in the game and finished with a team-high seven points.

Fyffe hit seven 3’s and made 3-of-6 free throws. Brindlee Mountain made 5-of-13 from the free throw line.

Fyffe won the JV boys game, 74-19. Joey Goosetree and Zecariah Smith led the Lions with four points each.

On Tuesday at home, all three teams lost again, this time to DAR.

The most intriguing game was the JV boys. DAR sank six 3-pointers in the first quarter to take a commanding 24-4 lead before winning 54-27. The Patriots finished with seven 3’s and made 3-of-3 free throws.

The Lions’ JV team made five 5’s but had zero free throw attempts as only five fouls were called in the game. Goosetree led the Lions with 12 points.

The Lady Lions fell 67-42 in a game that was tied 8-8 after one quarter. Devon Murray led Brindlee Mountain with 12 points.

The Lady Lions made six 3’s in the game compared to one for DAR but it wasn’t enough.

Head coach Justin Jonus’ varsity boys team bombed the Lions with 14 3-pointers in an 86-30 win. The Lions made three 3’s and 7-of-9 free throws. DAR was 6-of-10 from the line.

Colton Hall led Brindlee Mountain with eight points.

The Lions and Lady Lions are home again Friday against Douglas. Next week, the varsity boys will play two games at Wallace-Hanceville.
