The Swamp Effect

Posted: Updated:

The district lead was on the line Friday night at the Swamp as Southwood brought their undefeated district record to Captain Shreve.  Gators head coach Todd Martinez hoped a huge home crowd could make a difference and we caught him giving the student section a little pep talk before the game.

Late in the 3rd quarter, the Cowboys led by 5 points when the Gators Jesse McWright went on his own 8-0 run.  McWright hit a game high 27 points, leading Captain Shreve to a 67-61 victory to tie Southwood for the district 1-5A top spot.  After the game the Gators said the crowd also played a huge part.

Friday night's win was big for the Gators in the district standings but it was also a little payback against Southwood. The Cowboys ended Shreve's 14 game district winning streak on January 21st.
