Lyons, GA. – November 18, 2022 | Coach Jared Goodwin

The Toombs County Boy’s Basketball team started off their season on a great note with a road victory at Claxton winning 61-32. The first quarter started off in a back-and-forth battle which ended with the Dawgs leading after the first quarter 13-10. The second quarter was similar until late in the second quarter when Toombs was able to force some turnovers and extend the lead at halftime thanks to a resounding alley-oop from Jesus Quintero to Dominic Eason. At halftime, the score was in favor of Toombs 25-14.

The second half got off to a better start as the Dawgs came out with a defensive mindset and turned the pressure up. Suffocating defense combined with hot shooting allowed the Dawgs to extend their lead after the third quarter to 41-24. The hot shooting and defense continued in the fourth quarter as the lead was stretched out to a 30-point lead during the quarter.

After the final buzzer sounded, the Dawgs claimed their victory with a 61-32 score. Leading the Dawgs in scoring was Dominic Eason with 18 points and four crowd-erupting dunks. Jesus Quintero had 17 points on the night and connected on five 3-pointers. Cam Faison, Marion James, and Tamarien McArthur all had 8 points each. As a team, the Dawgs made eleven 3-pointers on the night. The next game for the Dawgs will be after the Thanksgiving break on November 29 at Montgomery County with the Girls Varsity starting at 6:00 pm and the Boys Varsity starting at 7:30 pm.
