Eufaula takes two

(Continued)

Boys:

Eufaula 74, Haskell 58


Alex Wheeland tossed in 19 first-half points including six from beyond the arc to keep the Haymakers going, leading 35-34 at halftime. But the Ironheads (12-10) made some corrections  and, like the girls completed a series sweep of the Haymakers.

“In the first half we were slow defensively and they outrebounded us,” said Ironheads coach Brad Campbell. “So we went more man-to-man defensively in the second half and that really was the difference.”

The strategy slowed Wheeland down as he got 10 points to give him 29 for the game, but only two field goals in the second half.

Davone Garfield was the leading scorer for Eufaula with 21 points. He was joined in double figures by Devin Siers with 19 points, Cody Faries with 15, all in the second half, and Forest Paden with 10 points.

Haymakers coach Jay Dixon was pleased with at least part of the game.

“We had a good first half and led at halftime but things kind of fell apart in the third quarter and we had to play without our big man (6-6 Michael Love) tonight so that hurt us.”

With playoff action looming, Campbell feels his team his ready to go.

“We had a tough loss to Checotah last week but we learned from that game and tonight, especially the second half, I think we’re playing about as well as we can right now,” said Campbell.
