Midway Middle’s boys basketball team earned a road win on Monday evening as they took down Roseboro-Salemburg Middle by a score of 45-18.
It was obvious that RSMS had improved since the last time the teams met, when the Leopards scored just 4 points.
However, Midway had the upper hand the entire night, as they jumped out to an early 16-5 lead after the opening period and never looked back.
Midway increased their lead to 27-11 at halftime and then 39-15 after 3 quarters of play, before finally closing out the game coming away winners by 27.
Midway’s head coach Josh Bullard was quick to praise the improvements of RSMS, and the way his boys played.
“They’ve really improved. You can tell that they have been doing some good things over there and really working with the boys,” said the Raider coach. “I am pleased with the way we played. I could tell it was a Monday game early on, but we settled in and were able to play a lot of guys and have some fun out there,” he concluded.
The Leopard head coach Austin Tanner was pleased with the improvement his team has shown.
“The guys have been working hard, and I’m proud of them for that,” said Tanner, the first year coach of Roseboro-Salemburg. “I just hope they keep working hard and keep getting better.”
Leading the Leps in scoring was Caleb McFee, who scored 12 points.
Midway was led by Cameron Barefoot’s 14 points. Jamar Autry scored 8 points for the Raiders, and Matthew Faircloth provided a spark off the bench for the Raiders, scoring 7.
Midway is now 7-0 on the year, and 3-0 in conference play. They are set to host Union on Thursday.
RSMS remains win-less.
