Dispatch Sports Editor

HAWKINSVILLE — Like students easily passing an open book test to prepare for classroom finals, Dooly County’s basketball teams aced Hawkinsville Saturday to prepare for the huge exam they’ll get in their Friday night regular season finales.

The 65-36 victory recorded by the Lady Bobcats and the 79-60 triumph posted by the Bobcats left both teams in position to capture the top Region 2-A Division A seeds they’ll get if they can sweep Wilcox County on the road.

“Both of our teams know we can’t afford to have a letdown in this one if we we’re going to have any chance at all of earning the No. 1 seeds for the tournaments,” Dooly girls coach David Barron said before Saturday’s twin bill tip-off.

Dooly 65, Hawkinsville 36

Seizing control of things from the start, the Lady Bobcats (17-7, 10-1) ran, shot, rebounded and defended their way into quarter advantages of 16-9, 32-20 and 53-27 before settling for an ultimate 29-point victory.

Kenisha Kellogg pitched in 17 points and Tylicia Sanders connected for another 14 to top the list of seven players breaking into the scoring column for the winners.

Kamara Bembry bagged 10 points for the losers.
