EAST BEAUREGARD 47,
Five 3-pointers by Cody Johnson helped the East Beauregard Trojans (1-0) win their season opener on the road against the Singer Hornets (6-6) Tuesday night. East Beauregard won 47-38. The Trojans had a 21-18 halftime lead, but Johnson hit three 3-pointers in the third quarter to help break the game open for the Trojans. Corey Townsley also made a 3-pointer for the Trojans in the third quarter. Cody Massie helped keep Singer in the game with 17 points. Eleven of those points came in the fourth quarter on the strength of three 3-pointers. But the shooting was the difference. Singer was 8-for-28 from the field with 2-point field goal attempts. Townsley had eight rebounds, Justin Rutherford had five assists for the Trojans and Jared Cooley collected three steals for East Beauregard.
“It’s a win,” Trojans head coach Alan Reeves said. “Nothing wrong with starting 1-0.
“Cody Johnson stepped up and made some big 3’s for us.”
Reeves said the two teams played a similar style, but the Trojans were able to hit a few more shots than the Hornets.
“We just didn’t shoot the basketball,” Hornets head coach Shane Thibodeaux said. “They had good defense. They had a hand on our shooter. They did a good job.”
East Beauregard hosts Hamilton Christian at 5 p.m. Friday and Singer hosts Grand Lake at 5 p.m. Friday.
