Boys Basketball Comes Up Short Against Perry

MACON, Ga. – The FPD boys basketball team (1-9) led by seven at the half, but it wasn’t enough to stop Perry’s K.J. Smith as the Panthers rattled off a 69-65 win over the Vikings on Saturday evening, Jan. 4, at the Middlebrooks Athletic Center.

Smith knocked in 30 points, including six 3-pointers on the night, to help aide Perry in the win.

The Vikings could only muster eight points in the third quarter as the Panthers outscored FPD by 14 in the third period.

The Panthers put up 22 points in the fourth quarter, one better than FPD’s 21 to secure the victory.

Three Vikings were in double figures on the night, highlighted by the 24 points of senior T.J. Sams.

Sophomore O’Showen Williams poured in 18 points of his own while senior Caleb Samuel  netted 10 points prior to fouling out.

Both teams capitalized from beyond the arc, each nailing ten 3-pointers.

Sams was honored pre-game for his performance in FPD’s 90-60 loss at Hancock Central on Friday, Jan. 3.

The guard scored 23 points to put him over 1,000 points in his playing career. Currently, Sams stands at 1,043.

FPD returns to action on Tuesday night, Jan. 7, hosting Twiggs County in a region 7 matchup at 7:30 p.m.
