The Duke’s Hoops Preview: Warren County vs Skyline

The high school boys basketball regular season concludes tonight with Skyline hosting Warren County on 1450 WFTR, theriver953.com, and the Tune In Radio App at 7:20 pm.

It will be Senior Night at Skyline High School and two of those seniors have stepped up their game of late.

Colby Wood played one of his best games of the season against Meridian to lead all scorers with 23 points, helping the Hawks knock off the top team in the region.

Caden Thorne has shot the three-ball more efficiently lately which has helped keep defenses honest, allowing more space inside for junior forward Dwayne Tucker.

While Skyline’s offense starts with their senior guards, Warren County’s offense has been led by a freshman down the stretch.

Bryce Bergmann has been filling up the scoring column, reaching over 20 points in the Wildcat’s last two games.

Warren County has already improved their record from last season, as well as raising their scoring average and lowering their points allowed, and with the emergence of Bergmann, should be very excited about the future of the program under head coach TJ Atlee.

Skyline started off the season rockier than previous years but have seem to find their stride as the season progressed to maintain aspirations for another playoff run.

The Hawks will look to put away their cross-town rivals early to provide some rest for their key players before the playoffs begin next week, but Warren County kept the game competitive early in the last matchup before fading.

Skyline’s depth and experience on Senior Night in front of a packed gym will give them the edge to continue their win streak against Warren County, 79-54.

The Duke’s Preview: Central vs Page County featuring Coach Mike Yew

Central (8-0) hosts Page County (1-7) for their Senior Night in the penultimate regular season High School Football Game of the Week on The River 95.3, Fox Sports Radio 1450 WFTR, theriver953.com and the Tune In Radio App.

Central has continued their great success from last season which ended in a State Championship game appearance into an undefeated regular season so far this season.

They have used the same formula including a bruising rushing attack led by an experienced offensive line and a battering ram at running back, senior Tyler Forbes.

Forbes leads all area rushers in Region 2B with 1,172 yards and 19 touchdowns.

The Central defense has remained stout all season long, allowing only 7.8 ppg with only two opponents scoring more than once all season.

Page County and Coach James May continue to try to build up their program and the offense has been able to produce points at times.

Quarterback Hunter Petit has been dangerous on the ground and in the air.

Last week against Madison County, he had a passing touchdown and a highlight 51 yard touchdown run.

He has two young weapons that he has formed a great connection with including tight end Isaac Foltz and wide receiver Dawson Richards, both of who are sophomores.

Defensively, Page County has struggled, allowing 46.6 points per game and 69 points last week against Madison County.

Central will need to avoid looking ahead to a potential, de-facto Bull Run District Championship Game against Strasburg.

The Falcons should be able to stay focused on their game plan and get the win due to their experience and control over the line of scrimmage, 56-8.
