The Wildcats jumped out to a 14-0 lead in the first quarter. Hobbton Middle coach Jackson Temple started putting the subs in during the second quarter. At the half, the Wildcats had a 24-0 lead. In the final two quarters, Temple played his whole bench. The Leopards got 6 points on the board in the third quarter but still had 36 point deficit. They scored 7 more in the final frame while the Wildcats added 6 for the 46-13 final.

The Wildcats had a balanced scoring attack; however, Tryson Hall led all scorers with 14 points. Decorris Morrison added 10 and Jordan Pearsall had 11. J. Holiday added 5. D. Mitchell had 6 of the Leopards 13 points.

Wildcat coach Jackson Temple said, “We have definitely improve this year. Since the last time we played them we have come a long ways; but, we still have a ways to go. There is a tournament this year and we are going to be working towards that. I’m excited about how we came out and played defense today. We keep doing this, we will be a team to be reckoned with in the tournament at the end of the season.”

The Wildcats will host Union Middle for their last home game Thursday. Roseboro will travel to Sampson.
