In a game which determined third place in the Region 6-4A boys’ standings, visiting Hartsville ruined Lugoff-Elgin’s Senior Night as the Red Foxes handed the hosts a 63-51 loss Friday inside the Demons Den.

With the win, Hartsville finished with a 4-4 conference mark while the Demons ended with a 3-5 ledger in league play.

The Demons led, 12-11, after the first quarter before the guests outscored Garrett Knight’s squad, 24-11, in the second quarter to carry a 35-23 lead into halftime. The Red Foxes led, 51-36, after three quarters of play.

L-E senior Kevon Roberson led the hosts with 18 points while senior forward Arturo Sealy was next with 15. Senior guard Bradwin Salmond chipped in with 11 points for the Demons who were 4-for-23 from beyond the 3-point arc.

In the girls’ game, Ivey Allen scored a season-best 11 points but it was not enough to get the Lady Demons to their first 6-4A victory of the season as the hostesses fell to Hartsville, 69-37, in the season finale for Von Duncan’s squad.

The Lady Red Foxes led, 16-6, after the first quarter and 33-12 at halftime en route to the victory.

Lady Knights close with a victory: Junior Kali Tomlin, who went over the 1,000-point plateau for her career earlier in the week, poured in 20 points on Friday as the North Central girls closed out their season with a 54-28 win over visiting Central in a game played in The Castle in Boonetown.

With the victory, first-year NC head coach David Dawson and company finished with a 2-10 mark in Region 4-AA play and 7-15 overall.

In the boys’ contest, the visiting Eagles upended the Knights, 69-55.

In spite of the loss which gave Kerry Hayes’ troops a 4-8 final record in Region 4-AA action, the Knights still finished fourth in the circuit and earned a AA state tournament berth.

North Central got off to a solid start, leading 12-10, after one quarter only to see the Eagles score 19 points in the second and 24 more in the third to carry a 53-41 advantage into the final eight minutes of play.

Freshman guard Dmitri Robinson led the way for the hosts scoring 17 points, 15 of which came on his five 3-point baskets.
