Childersburg quells Indian Springs, moves on to area championship game against Midfield

SHARE NOW

MIDFIELD, Ala. – Both the girls’ and boys’ basketball teams from Childersburg High School moved on to the Class 3A, Area 9 championship games by defeating Indian Springs at Midfield on Monday night.

However, the boys’ team took a little different and tougher road for their win.

A scrappy and tough Indian Springs team made it difficult on the Tigers. Hot shooting in the first half by Indian Springs brought the game to a 31-31 tie at intermission.

The Tigers actually trailed by two points as the fourth quarter started, and you could see Indian Springs’ confidence growing.

Yet a smothering Childersburg defense held them to only one field goal in the final eight minutes, and a crucial technical foul on Indian Springs Head Coach Greg Van Horn fueled a 21-6 fourth stanza for the Tigers to continue their season with a 61-48 victory.

Kordes Swain had a monster showing, leading his team with 24 points and 14 rebounds. He was followed in the books with 11 points for both Jordan Mann and Ja’Kaleb Stone. Sharrod Robertson had a big fourth quarter and ended up with 8 points and Isaac Marbury added 7.

Coach Johnny Johnson said, “They wanted it a little more than we did, especially in the first half, but we challenged our team at the half and they responded with a great second half defensive performance by only allowing 17 points in the second half.”

Both boys’ and girls’ teams will now face Midfield in the championship on Wednesday night.

The boys’ game can be heard on the Tiger Sports Network on KiX 100.3 around 7:15 p.m. with the voices of Childersburg athletics, Robert Sprayberry and David McCurley.
