Gleason falters in fourth during defeat to Trenton

 

Gleason had nothing doing in the fourth quarter and lost its opportunity to play forward.

 

The Lady Bulldogs, who trailed by three points heading into the final frame, made only one shot from the field in the fourth quarter before falling 48- 32 at Trenton in the Region 7A Tournament quarterfinals.

 

The two squads were nearly equal during the first quarter with Gleason trailing 9-7 after one quarter.

 

Maya Anderson drained a three-pointer for the Lady Tide while Rae’Vianna Clark and Kiera Hill each offered a bucket for the eventual victors.

 

Gleason’s first-quarter efforts were led by Lillian Nichols with a pair of buckets while Jordyn Greene added a basket and Darby Reed contributed a free throw.

 

In the second quarter, Trenton held a slim 13-12 advantage to lead 22-19 at halftime.

 

Stacie Mayberry paced the Lady Tide with four tallies in the second period while Indiah Williams contributed a trifecta. Jayden Green carried Gleason on her back offensively throughout the second period, totaling 10 of her team’s dozen points off a pair of buckets and six free throws.

 

The third quarter was even with each team totaling 10 points. Nichols totaled four free throws for the Lady Bulldogs while Green, Reed and Greene added a bucket apiece.

 

In the fourth quarter, Greene made a three-pointer to account for the only Gleason points of the frame. Trenton totaled 16 points in the final frame. Down the stretch, the Lady Tide made 10-of-13 free throws to seal the victory as the Lady Bulldogs struggled to swish the net at all.

 

Green was Gleason’s leading scorer with a dozen points while Nichols offered eight tallies and Greene contributed seven points.

Lampkins Talks Football at Gleason Rotary

 

 

GLEASON (January 23) — Coach Noah Lampkins was the featured speaker at the Gleason Rotary Club on January 23. Lampkins, a Gleason High alum and head football coach, talked about his career and football in Gleason.

 

Lampkins filled the room with his passion for the game and his love for coaching. With humorous anecdotes, the mood was kept light as Lampkins explained his transition from pharmaceutical sales to gridiron coaching. One phone call from the late Sam Guthrie brought him back to Gleason.

 

With no coaching experience, Lampkins was at the helm of small football program, but with the support of Gleason he was off and running.

War Eagles, Lady Bulldogs Split Wins

BY SARA RACHELS

 GLEASON (January 27) — The race for first place in District 13A may come down to the wire, but the Gleason girls continue to make a strong case for themselves in the final days of the regular season.

 After taking it on the chin to Dresden, the Lady Dawgs rebounded to take three straight district victories - the last of which was a 74-21 home-court triumph over West Carroll on Friday night. Several youngsters saw action on the court and were able to make fourth-quarter contributions. Now, it’s all a matter of playing five games in eight days to finish up the regular season. 

Green led the way against West Carroll with 19 points. Borneman scored nine and Mahlese McDonald had eight. The Lady Bulldog reserves contributed 24 points with Aubrey Wallace totaling seven of those. 

Gracie Cunningham was high scorer for the Lady War Eagles with seven. Three-pointers from Borneman and Green and two baskets in the paint from Darby Reed pushed Gleason to a 10-2 start. 

Cunningham and Deidre Clark led West Carroll back to within a bucket, 11-9, but Jordyn Greene and Shelbie Burton came off the bench to spark the Lady Dawgs to a 16-11 lead at the end of one quarter.  

In the second quarter, Macey Cunningham scored all four of the visitors’ points in the period as Green had 10 of Gleason’s 24. At halftime, the Lady Dawgs’ lead had grown to 40-15.  

Gleason added 22 points to lead West Carroll at the start of the final frame, 62-15. With a running clock in the fourth period, Gleason reserves Kenady Atkins and Ally Spain hit three-pointers and Wallace, Alexis Anderson and Keicha Shafer had baskets to make the final score 74-21. 

West Carroll 70, Gleason 42 (Boys) 

Gleason used a hot start and a cold War Eagle beginning to make it an even first quarter, but the visitors eventually found the range and overpowered the Dawgs.

Chase Nash led West Carroll with 24 points. Jack Johnson scored 20. 

Lucio Solano had 17 for Gleason and Olen Reed contributed 10. Solano and Dawson Arnold powered Gleason to a 6-0 start as the War Eagles struggled to get going. At the 3:05 mark, however, Nash scored for the visitors and led an 8-0 run to put WC up by a pair. Solano hit a runner just before the quarter’s end, however, and the first frame ended in a tie at eight.  

The War Eagles came alive in the second. With seven points each from Nash and Johnson, West Carroll used a 25-point quarter to lead 33-15 at halftime.  

Johnson and Nash led the way again in the third with 13 and nine points, respectively. Outscoring Gleason 24-15, West Carroll increased the lead to 57-30 after three quarters of play. 

In the fourth quarter, scoring slowed down for the visitors, but with a 13-12 advantage, it was more than enough for the War Eagles to close out its 70-42 win. Source: McKenzie Banner.

Past, Present Lady Dawgs Celebrate win vs. G’field

KENNETH COKER Sports Editor

Dresden Enterprise

Gleason’s girls made their predecessors happy on Friday evening.

On a night when the 1992 and 2007 Class A state champion squads reunited to celebrate their pass success, the Lady Bulldogs offered a present one with a 57-50 besting of Greenfield in a non-district contest.

In the nightcap, the Greenfield boys snapped a five-game losing streak with a 76-54 triumph over Gleason.

The girls’ game was hotly contested with a total of nine lead changes and nine ties over the course of the contest.

Gleason closed the third quarter with a four-point swing when Jordyn Greene offered a stickback at the buzzer after a Lady Bulldog miss moments earlier. Greene’s rebound had the Greenfield side of the floor thinking an over the back foul had been committed, while the Gleason side believed it to be a clean play.

On the floor, it was ruled as two points for Gleason. As the two teams went to their huddles, the Lady Yellowjacket bench was issued a technical for its disputing of the call.

Lady Bulldog Jayden Green made both of the technical free throw attempts to give Gleason a 44-38 lead after three quarters.

“We got a big four-point swing in our favor with a stick back and two free throws at the end of the third quarter,” said Lady Bulldog head coach Sean Stephenson, who was coaching with a heavy heart after the loss of his grandfather days earlier. “I didn’t see how the technical went down. I was in the timeout or headed that way. We just persevered and made a play. We hadn’t had a stick back until that point. Jordyn made a play and we were fortunate to get the free throws. With the lead, we were able to dictate the tempo in the fourth quarter.”

With the triumph, the Lady Bulldogs improved to 16-3, while Greenfield fell to 15-2 with both of its losses being to Gleason.

Both programs played on Tuesday night with Gleason at home against Big Sandy. Greenfield traveled to Bradford the same evening.

Gleason goes to Bruceton on Friday. Greenfield hosts Trenton the same evening.

Gleason 57, G’field 50 (G)

With a six-point (44-38) advantage as the fourth quarter started, the Lady Bulldogs added to their cushion when Lillian Nichols made a pair of free throws. Yet, Greenfield answered with a Tess Darby deuce.

As Gleason had done so many times during its state championship runs, the Lady Bulldogs chewed over a minute off the clock during their next possession before Nichols was sent to the free throw line. Nichols made the first of her two charity tosses to put Gleason ahead by a 47-40 count with 4:36 remaining in the game. Darby – who scored a game high 27 points – drained a three a little under a minute later to make it a two-possession and four-point contest.

However, Nichols was fouled the next trip down and made a pair of free throws nine seconds later to stretch the Lady Bulldogs’ lead to six points. Later, a Jayden Green free throw after Mahlese McDonald grabbed her own rebound after missing the front end of a oneand-one resulted in a 50-43 Gleason lead.

Lady Yellowjacket Chloe Moore offered a basket to cut into the Lady Bulldogs cushion, but senior Kelsey Borneman answered with a pair of free throws.

Ultimately, Moore made a three-pointer with 33 seconds to play to pull Greenfield within four points – down 54-50.

On the other end as the Lady Yellowjackets tried to trade foul shots for possessions, Nichols was clutch at the charity stripe, making a pair of free throws to give Gleason a six-point lead.

Later and after a Green steal, McDonald made the second of a pair of charity tosses with around 10 seconds to play to seal the triumph.

Aside from Darby, Greenfield – without usual starter Bentley Gordon (knee injury) – had Moore with 18 tallies.

Nichols was Gleason’s leading point lady with 19. Jayden Green offered a dozen tallies, while Jordyn Greene (no relation) contributed 10. McDonald and Borneman each finished with six points apiece.

G’field 76, Gleason 54 (B)

After having faced and fell to the current top four of District 14A (Halls, Union City, Humboldt and Gibson County) during its five-game losing streak, Greenfield was happy to see opposition on an equal playing field.

“It’s the cards we’ve been dealt in our district, but when you get the chance to get a win, you try your best to do so,” Yellowjacket head coach Chad Levister said after the victory. “We’re getting better in the district we play in and trying to compete. I think we did that against South Fulton (on Jan. 3), but we didn’t last night at Halls. I’m proud of the guys to come out tonight, refocus and get a win.”

Leading scorer Levi Dees (27 points) offered a dozen points in the first quarter including back-to-back buckets to open the game. Greenfield’s Jackson Crouse followed Dees’ first two scores with a three to give the visiting team a 7-0 lead.

However, Gleason fought back and pulled within a deuce after a Lucio Solano three pointer.

Later, Dees added a pair of free throws to his total while starting a 9-4 Greenfield flurry which Yellowjacket Joshua Floyd concluded with a pair of free throws to result in a 16-9 G’field advantage. The two teams were almost even for the remainder of the first quarter with Greenfield exiting the first period with a 26-17 cushion.

Gleason had a slim advantage in the scoring department during the second period, besting the Yellowjackets 16-15 in the frame behind seven points by Solano. Dees continued to guide Greenfield in period No. 2 with 11 tallies in the frame. The Yellowjackets led 41-33 at halftime.

Floyd came on strong in the third quarter with eight points, while Crouse added five tallies off a bucket and a three pointer.

 Overall, Greenfield added to its lead during the third period with a 20-11 bettering of Gleason in the frame. The Yellowjackets carried a 61-44 lead into the final frame.

In the fourth quarter, Greenfield held a 15-10 advantage in the scoring department to close out the triumph.

Aside from Dees, the Yellowjackets’ other notable scorers were Crouse with 13 points, Keaton Cook with eight tallies and Kamron Shane with six.

Solano, who fouled out, topped the Bulldog scorebook with 17. Gleason’s Olen Reed added 14 – 11 in the second half – while Dawson Arnold contributed 11 and Peyton Stigall added six. Source: Dresden Enterprise.
