LYNN CAMP — The Lynn Camp Wildcats knocked off Red Bird Tuesday, 77-54, extending their win streak to five games, the longest of the season for Clyde Dixon’s squad.
Zach Smith and Skylar McFarland did the bulk of the work, scoring 25 and 23 points apiece, respectively, accounting for just over 62 percent of the Wildcats’ points.
Despite the win, Dixon said he didn’t feel like his team played as well as it could have, but credited the Wildcats for a solid effort.
“This was the third game in four nights for us and I didn’t feel we played our best game,” Dixon said. “Red Bird has a couple of nice players and Eric Young for them is a scoring machine.
“We missed Matt Trosper, who sat this one out with an injury, but Bruce Hopkins did a good job in replacement,” he added. “This is five wins in a row for us, which is a big positive for this team.”
Lynn Camp held a slim 13-11 win at the end of the first quarter and was able to extend the margin to 29-22 at the halftime break.
The Wildcats picked up the pace in the third quarter, outscoring Red Bird 23-14 in the period, making the lead 52-36 with eight minutes to play in the game.
A 25-18 effort in the fourth quarter helped seal the deal for the Wildcats as they grabbed the 77-54 win.

LIKE IT OR NOT: A few tips for fantasy draft day
As high school, college and pro football season approaches, so too does Fantasy Football draft day.
The Tri-County Sports Authority’s Dirty Dawgs, a 16-under travel baseball team, placed second in the high school division of the Stars and Stripes July Bash, which was held in Knoxville, Tennessee last weekend.
When it comes to having success, no team in the Tri-County has had more during the past 10 years than the South Laurel Lady Cardinals soccer program.
Second Time Around
When all is said and done after the 2014 high school soccer season, a lot of teams will measure their success by wins and losses.
THE WAY IT IS: The times, they are a changing
The times, they are a changing — especially in the Tri-County high school sports scene.
The Tri-County Sports Authority youth football league, which usually fields in the neighborhood of 200 players, is about to get a little more crowded this season.
THE WAY IT IS: Football is in the air in the Tri-County
These cool summer days are reminding me of the cool football Friday nights of September and October, and with that said, these cooler temperatures have me in the mood of writing about things to come for our local football teams in the Tri-County.
It’s never too early to talk about what games will be the big ones for the Tri-County high school football fans to watch this upcoming season. I’ve tried to narrow my list down to 10 games, but honestly, it really wasn’t easy to do — but I did manage to do it.
Let’s just say things should be very entertaining, and interesting, for you the fan this season.
