Pacers get the best of the "Grovetown Round Robin"

Fall League Video Highlights: Pacers vs GAIS Eagles 2

After an exciting first week in Fall League action, the anticipation for week two's varsity games was notable.  And while the crowd at Evans High was being entertained by many of our area's top players, those at the Grovetown site were also treated to competitive, well played games.  After the Lady Timberwolves started the day with a win over the GAIS Lady Eagles, the next several hours featured a round robin of sorts involving the varsity division's Pacers and Timberwolves, as well as my two GAIS Eagles squads.

The Pacers emerged as the "champ" of this series of games after defeating the Eagles 2 team and the Timberwolves.  The wins improve the Pacers' Fall League record to 2-2.  By tallying a loss against the Pacers and a win over Eagles 1, the Timberwolves move to 2-1.  And the Eagles fall to 0-4.

After trailing 34-16 to a red hot shooting Eagles 2 team at half time of their first game, the Pacers were led to a 60-57 victory by Grovetown High School juniors Solomon Gause (21 points) and Kenny Joseph (20 points).  Gause scored 15 of his points in the second half as the 6’4” wing repeatedly attacked the basket and got to the foul line.  And Joseph added 4 three pointers. Sophomore Mike Green of Eagles 2 led all scorers with 22 points in the loss.

Gause continued his fine play in a win over the Timberwolves two hours later.  And his Grovetown teammate Logan Morris came alive to score 17 points, including five 5 three pointers in the win.  After losing its opening games against the Clippers and Warriors (two of the league’s best), the Pacers appear to be on the right track.

Despite losing to the Pacers, the Timberwolves remain in good position in the win-loss standings after defeating Eagles 1 in the opening varsity game Saturday.  Greenbrier senior Kayshawn Marshall scored 20 points including 15 in the second half.  Marshall hit 3 three pointers after halftime.  Matt Kelly led Eagles 1 with 16 points.
