LONE OAK — The hosting Lone Oak Buffaloes might have taken a one-point varsity win from Como-Pickton in round ball action, but the Como-Pickton JV Eagles boasted a 51-34 victory Friday.
The game started slowing with C-P putting up buckets by lead scorer Ryan Carpenter, Joseph Thornhill, Hunter Cooksey, and James Carter tallying 10.
The Buffaloes take advantage of their lead to build on it in the second quarter tacking on twice as many points as the Eagles. Trying to regain, Carpenter sank two back-to-back treys in the fourth. Contributing to the 3-point average was teammate Phillip Cox with a long swish from behind the half circle line. Lone Oak answers back with a 3-pointer to cinch the 46-45 win. The C-P JV trumped the Buffaloes in the first quarter with lead of 10. The Eagles were very offensive with scoring by the means of many ball handlers.
Two-point buckets were the Eagles point of reference on the night. Eagles Julian Ramirez punched in 15 points, Merced Ramirez netted 12, and Seth Sturgill popped in 11 (nine in the second half) to lead the JV team to a 51-34 victory.
Como-Pickton will host Alba-Golden Tuesday with a 4:30 tip off time. The Eagles will finish district with hosting Cooper Friday and the following Tuesday they will play a road game at Grand Saline.

Plagued by turnovers and missed shots, the Lady Eagles quickly found their range to take a five point lead. C-P got to the line 10 times to convert seven of them with Jordan Carlock shooting four-of-four from the charity stripe in the first quarter.

The Lady Eagles continued to control the boards defensively, giving Quitman very few second chance opportunities for most of the game, as they out rebounded them 27-10 overall and 20 to five on the defensive end.
