The White Oak Roughnecks claimed a 38-10 victory last Monday, this time it was the Arp Tigers.

Trent Pepper, was the top scorer and ended the night with 12 points.

“We did really well passing the ball this week,” Pepper said. “We need to work on and show improvement on specific plays.”

Shawn Stevens finished with 10, Ethan Williams and Brock Reddic chipped in four, Kaleb Sorgee three, Davis Toliver and Reyson Gajewsky contributed two each and Gavin Sipes added one.

“We are making progress,” Coach Ron Boyett said. “Our transition offense is looking better and we’re starting to execute better in the half court but we have to finish better around the basket.”

The ‘Necks have had lots of practice since the beginning of the season and will continue to focus on skills and ball handling.

One of the prime indicators of this is free throw shooting and we were seven of 10 against Arp,” Boyett said. “ We’ll continue to keep working.”

The ‘Necks will play their next game on the road at West Rusk on January 10.
