The Generals of Horseshoe Bend High School will be looking to make it 3-0 as they take on the Reeltown Rebels this Friday night.
It will be the first game for both teams since meeting in the finals of the Central-Clay Christmas Tournament.
The two teams have met twice this season, with Horseshoe Bend coming out on top in both of the prior match-ups.Horseshoe Bend triumphed in the first contest by seven, winning by a score of 50-43.
Jay Glenn and Brandon Hassell led the way for the Generals, scoring 15 points and 11 points respectively as the Generals used improved defense and a strong third quarter to turn the game to their favor for good.
In the second meeting, the Central-Clay Christmas tournament championship was on the line and while the ante was upped, the result ended up virtually the same, this time with the Generals bringing the tourney title back to New Site by a score of 51-43.
J. Glenn led all Horseshoe Bend players with 12 points scored. Cory Glenn played a pivotal role, scoring 12 points in the tournament final.
That loss began a four-game slump for the Rebels, which they’ll attempt to end as they visit HBHS.
The 9-5 Lady Generals will look to break the season series tie that they currently have with the Lady Rebels, who have won three of their last five.
The first meeting between HBHS’ girls and Reeltown’s girls was a last-second heartbreaker that Reeltown won 41-39.
The Lady Rebels were able to score in the final moments and HBHS couldn’t answer.
The second meeting between the two teams left little doubt as the Lady Generals stymied Reeltown to the tune of 36-24 in the opening round of the Central-Clay Christmas Tournament.
Asia Stowes led all HBHS scorers with 12 points.
Tip-off is scheduled for 5 p.m. for the girls while the boys are scheduled to begin at 6 p.m.
