Woodlawn whips Grayville

WOODLAWN — The Cardinals were never threatened in a 77-32 thrashing of Grayville on Tuesday night.

Woodlawn put three players in double figures with Gabe Owens’ 19 points leading the team. Owens canned five 3-pointers with three coming in the opening quarter.

“He’s a very good shooter, and he’s put the work in to make himself a good shooter,” Woodlawn coach Shane Witzel said. “Probably his biggest improvement is how he moves off the ball.”

Matt Kennedy and Kris Harlow both added a dozen points each for Woodlawn. Grayville’s Logan Bell finished with 13 points and seven rebounds.

Woodlawn opened up a 18-2 lead in the first quarter after a bucket from Kris Harlow. The Cardinals stretched the lead to 20 points early in the second.

“I’m really happy with our effort and unselfishness to start the game when we were able to create a lot of pressure and a lot of turnovers,” Witzel said. “Offensively we got into a really good flow there where we were making the correct passes.”

Woodlawn’s defense harassed the Bison throughout the game, forcing 30 turnovers. The Cardinals held Grayville to one basket in the third quarter.

The Cardinals largest lead of the game came at 68-24 with five minutes left in the game. The blowout victory gave the Cardinals a chance to play deep into their bench.

“We want those guys to get better too,” Witzel said. “And they had a tough stretch there in the first quarter at the end of the first where I didn’t think their effort was what it should be. They came back in the second half, and that was a much better effort defensively for them.”

Woodlawn is 17-2 this season and 5-0 in the Midland Trail Conference.
