Tigers rally to hand Sonoraville first loss; Lady Tigers fall to Lady Phoenix

Tre Winters led the Tigers with 29 points in their win Friday over Sonoraville.

The Adairsville Tigers trailed visiting Sonoraville for most of the game Friday night before rallying in the fourth quarter to earn a 54-52 win over the Phoenix.

Sonoraville held leads of 17-10, 27-21, and 39-35 at the end of the first three quarters but the Tigers outscored the Phoenix 19-13 over the final eight minutes to collect a two-point, non-region win.

“They jumped out to an early lead,” said Adairsville head coach Alex Disbrow, “but we were able to claw back with defensive stops and some timely shooting. Our team defense was excellent after the first quarter.”

Tre Winters led Adairsville with 29 points. Tay Jackson and Ben Abernathy scored six each. Zach Postell and Xavious Nalls added five each for the Tigers.

Jordyn Storey led Sonoraville with 20 points. Elijah Woods added 11 for the Phoenix.

It was the first loss of the season for Sonoraville (8-1).

Adairsville (6-2) returns to action Monday at Wesleyan High School in the Spalding Drive Classic. The Tigers will face Stephenson in the first round of the three-day tournament at 4 p.m.


The Lady Phoenix led 27-16 at halftime after outscoring the Lady Tigers 18-4 in the second quarter and then held on in the second half for a six-point win at Adairsville Friday night.

Analee Morris made five three-pointers and scored 28 points to lead the Adairsville scoring. Zariyah Hicks finished with six points. NaXyria Roberts, Aliya McBryde, and Alissa Winters chipped in with three points each. Megan Gregory added two for the Lady Tigers.

Sonoraville, who is now a member of Region 7-AAAA, improved to 8-1. Sonoraville was led by Brynley Walraven's 17 points.

The Lady Tigers slipped to 7-2 on the season. Next up for the Adairsville girls will be a matchup with North Laurel, Kentucky in the first round of the Adairsville Holiday Tournament.
