Flyers fall to Lincoln

Published 12:00 am Wednesday, December 17, 2003

A slow first quarter proved to be the difference for Franklin County’s boys basketball team Tuesday night.

The Flyers trailed Lincoln County 20-8 after the first period, then played on even terms with the Patriots before losing 78-65 at FCHS.

“In the first quarter we had trouble adjusting to their big guy, (Jonathon) True,” FCHS coach Scott Chalk said. “He came out very aggressive. He played against some decent size, but he’s big and strong and finished a lot of shots.” True, who finished with a game-high 28 points, had 11 points in the first quarter.

Lincoln County (3-2) led 34-19 at halftime and 51-37 going into the fourth quarter.

“We made some adjustments,” Chalk said of the second half. “We scored 46 points in the second half, and that’s great for us. Forty-six points is good for any team for a half.

“I was pleased overall with our play and effort,” he added. “They were really good. Our big guys (Paul Chambers, Quentin Coleman and Chase Straw) did a good job of not backing down. They battled him. Bruce (Bohman) and Adam (Jones) offensively were more aggressive, and that makes a difference. And Matt Harris, Cameron Conner and Houston Hardy came off the bench and played well.”

The Patriots connected on 11 three-pointers in the game, led by senior guard Chris Hart who had five three-pointers and finished with 21 points.

Bohman led the Flyers with 20 points as he hit four treys. Jones finished with 12 points, and Straw had 10.
