This Tuesday is for boys basketball as three teams from Highland County are taking the court for non-conference games early into the season, with the Hillsboro Indians going on the road to face Georgetown. Next is Fairfield hosting the Paint Valley Bearcats, and the Whiteoak Wildcats are hosting Felicity-Franklin.

As good as the games on Tuesday should be to watch, on Monday night the Lynchburg-Clay Lady Mustangs welcomed a new player into the 1,000 point club in junior Peyton Scott as she needed six points to gain 1,000 and reached that point in the second quarter last night against the Goshen Lady Warriors.

Congratulations are in order for Scott, and it will be exciting to see where the rest of this season and her high school career go because she’s on track to achieve some special goals at LCHS. The game also saw LC defeat Goshen 45-38 to improve to 2-1 on the season.

Here is a look at the games for Tuesday night for Highland County schools.

Tuesday, Dec. 5
Boys Basketball

Hillsboro at Georgetown

The Indians are looking to gain their third win of the season in as many games, this time playing away from Hillsboro for the first time this season at Georgetown. The Indians have won against both the Eastern Brown Warriors and the McClain Tigers thus far, including a 21-5 run last Saturday night in the fourth quarter against the Tigers.

Georgetown is 1-0 on the season, winning by a 63-52 score over the Ripley Blue Jays. In that game, Noah Pack led the G-Men with 27 points, Luke Gast scored 12 points and Logan Doss had 10 points.

Paint Valley at Fairfield
This should be a fun matchup between two neighboring county teams, with the Lions being 2-0 to start the season after this past weekend where they won over Manchester and East Clinton. In those two games, Sam Buddelmeyer of FHS had scoring games of 23 points (at Manchester) and 24 points (vs. East Clinton).

The Bearcats have Division I signee Dylan Swingle, who has committed to Duquesne when his collegiate basketball career begins. The 6-9 Swingle scored 27 points (and added 14 rebounds) in the Bearcats’ double-overtime season opener against Amanda Clearcreek.

Felicity-Franklin at Whiteoak
Whiteoak takes the court tonight for the second time this season, and the final score of their first game — a 65-50 loss to Peebles — doesn’t tell the story of how close they played their SHAC rival in the season opener this past Friday. At the conclusion of the third quarter, the Wildcats trailed by just two points at 47-45, so in their second outing it will be interesting to see how they take the next step in their second game of the year.

Hillsboro vs. McClain

The Highland County matchup between the two teams is usually an exciting time for both schools and should be competitive for both the boys and the girls teams. Earlier this season, the McClain Tiger Sharks defeated Bloom-Carroll.

Lynchburg-Clay at Chillicothe

The Lynchburg-Clay Mustangs bowling team will be playing at Shawnee Lanes on Tuesday, as this is a non-conference match against the Chillicothe Cavaliers of the Frontier Athletic Conference.
