The Vidalia Indians won their 14th straight game on Tuesday night as they rolled by the Bacon County Raiders 58-34 in Alma. Earlier the Lady Indians moved their record to 8-9 with a tough 45-36 win over the Lady Raiders.

In the boy’s game, the 7th ranked Indians led wire to wire to move to 16-1 on the year and 5-0 in 2AA play. “I think our defense really stymied what they wanted to do,” said Vidalia’s Head Coach Tommy Dalley.”

After the first quarter, the Indians led 15-6, holding Bacon Co. to just two three-pointers. Vidalia increased their lead to 31-13 at the half, but a cold-shooting third quarter allowed the Red Raiders to keep it within range, ending the quarter trailing by 14 points.

Ty Dalley, who led the way for the Indians, scored 7 of his game-high 14 points in the closing quarter as the Indians outscored the Raiders 16-6 down the stretch to get the win. “I think we controlled the speed of the game, and once we adjusted to what they wanted to do physically, we settled down and played the way we are supposed to.”

Bryson Whited, with 3 three-pointers, finished the night with 11 points, while Jacobi Washington and Konner Owens added 9 points each.

The Lady Indians fell behind early in the girl’s game, trailing by as many as 7 points in the first quarter. But a solid 2nd quarter got them back into the contest, where they eventually grabbed their 3rd Region 2AA win, moving them into 3rd place in the standings.

Vidalia trailed 12-5 after a quarter but outscored Bacon County 14-5 in the 2nd quarter, taking their first lead with 3:42 to go in the half and led 19-17 at the break. The 3rd quarter saw Bacon County reclaim the lead with 1:04 to go in the quarter, but the Lady Indians outscored the Lady Raiders 17-6 down the stretch to secure the victory.

“I thought we played well at times,” said Head Coach Sissy Anderson. “We just have to learn to put all four quarters together.”

Freshman Kaliya Walker led the way with 16 points, while Corianna Warren and Cristal Franklin finished with nine and eight points respectfully. The Lady Indians had their best free-throw shooting night of the season, shooting 64% from the line, with Carleigh Wardlaw hitting 4 of 4 in the closing stretch.

Both teams will now face Swainsboro on the road on Saturday, with the girl’s game tipping at 6:30 and the boys following at 8:00. You can hear the games on Classic Hits, 98Q and at southeastgeorgiatoday.com.
