It was a solid day for Dickson area teams, as the five squads in action on Tuesday all picked up solid wins. Dickson County High welcomed Northwest in for Senior Night, and the Lady Cougars started things off with a 60-38 win, led by Payton Grove’s 17 points. The game was close at the half, but Dickson County used stifling defense and sizzling offense to pull away for the win. The Cougar boys made quick work of the rebuilding Vikings, thrashing the Green and Gold 75-22. DCHS had a 34-2 lead after just one quarter of play and never looked back. Twelve players scored for Dickson County, led by Tyler Spicer’s 17 points.
The Creek Wood squads similarly swept Clarksville Academy on the Red Hawks’ Senior Night. The Lady Red Hawks won every quarter in a 63-35 rout of CA, led by Kattie Collins’ 17 points. Eleven players scored for the Creek Wood girls. The boys got an even more resounding win over the Clarksville Academy Cougars on Tuesday. Nine players scored for Creek Wood as the Red Hawks blasted CA 78-52, winning every quarter by at least 3. Drew Smithson had a game high 21 including 2 made three pointers.
And the DMS Dragons outlasted the homestanding Stewarts Creek Falcons 48-36 in a bizarre finish to a TMSAA Class AAA Sectional Tournament Quarterfinal matchup. Dickson led 34-21 after three quarters of play, but in the final frame the “visiting” home team caught fire. Unfortunately for them, Dickson was solid at the foul line and prevented the Falcons from getting close enough, and a strange double technical on the SCMS coach with 20 seconds to go gave Dickson essentially an 8 point swing and helped the Dragons salt away a first round win.
