“We’ve been talking about making winning plays and we’ve talked about winning tight games,” Farragut head coach Jon Higgins said after his Admirals outlasted the Hawks 46-41 at FHS’s Lynn E. Sexton Gymnasium Friday, Jan. 5. “Even when our offense was awful, we still played pretty good defense.”
Farragut’s offense wasn’t merely abysmal in the first half — it was nearly non-existent. The Admirals [8-9 overall, 2-5 in the district] scored just eight points over the opening 16 minutes.
Hardin Valley [7-10, 1-6], however, didn’t fare much better. But the Hawks scored enough to have a 13-8 lead at halftime.
