Christian Heritage boys fall to LFO at Phoenix Classic

Take away the turnovers, and Christian Heritage boys basketball coach Anthony Moseley believes the Lions win on Monday.

Too bad ball security is a big part of the sport.

Moseley estimated at least 30 turnovers for Christian Heritage on the final day of the Phoenix Classic at Sonoraville High School as the Lions lost 75-64 versus Lakeview-Fort Oglethorpe.

“If you cut the turnovers in half, we win the game convincingly,” Moseley said. “It was a pretty good game. The thing about our team is we want to get better every game. That’s the reason we’re playing these higher-ranked teams. They produce a bigger challenge.”

LFO is a Class 3A school, while Christian Heritage is a Class A program.

Jake Porter led the Lions with 15 points, while Chase Tidwell accounted for 13 points. Andrew McEntyre contributed 12 points and Tyson Cooper added 10.

Christian Heritage trailed 14-10 at the end of the first quarter and 34-27 at halftime. When the third period concluded, Christian Heritage trailed by four, 51-47, and had hopes of a victory after trimming the deficit to nearly one possession.

Yet, the turnovers proved too much.

“We were turning the ball over like it was slick or something,” Moseley said.

Christian Heritage falls to 6-6 with the loss and eyes the start of Sub-region 6A-A play on Friday with a home game against Trion.

The girls begin at 7 p.m. and the boys play immediately after.

• Northwest Whitfield’s boys team was scheduled to play Tennessee school Cumberland Gap in the fifth-place game of the Midway (Tenn.) Christmas Classic on Monday.

Results and statistics from the game were not reported by The Daily Citizen’s deadline.

    Northwest Whitfield High School’s baseball team has been successful this season. But at the same time, no one said success would be easy.
    Several times this year, the Bruins have fallen behind early in the first few innings before answering with a rally to ensure the wins keep coming. On Friday, that formula delivered a Sub-region 7B-4A championship for the second year in a row.

    Dalton High School baseball coach Shane Ramsey only needed one word to sum up what he expects from this week’s three-game series with Sub-region 7B-4A foe and intracounty rival Northwest Whitfield.
    “Intensity,” he said. “If you can’t get up for this series, then why are you playing?”

  • Wrestler of the year 2014 2 mlh.jpg All-Area Wrestling Team and Wrestler of the Year: Winning another title was the only goal for Wheeler

    When Dalton High School wrestler Sidney Wheeler won a state title for the first time two years ago as a sophomore, he admitted he became a little complacent about what it would take to replicate the feat — perhaps not noticeably so to most observers, but enough to take success for granted. Wheeler believed it a matter of course that he would win state again, and he thought the second title would simply be the middle child in a high school three-peat.

  • Prep roundup: SE offense keeps foot on throttle

    As long as Southeast Whitfield High School’s baseball team continues to hit the ball and score runs the way it has so far this season, it really won’t matter what the defense does.
    Coach Brad Lofton still likes how the Raiders’ fielding is improving.
