|Monterey boys upend Harrisonburg|
Wins against Harrisonburg High School have been tough to come by for Monterey High boys teams the past few years.
Obviously taking two of four this season has been satisfying for the Wolf faithful.
Harrisonburg's boys defeated Monterey in the Monterey Tournament, but the Wolves got revenge in Harrisonburg's tournament, defeating the Bulldogs.
Monterey lost at Harrisonburg in October, but the Wolves gained a split of the series with a 41-33 win at Monterey Tuesday night.
"It's a good win anytime you can beat Harrisonburg," said Monterey coach Jeffery Odom.
It was also the 10th win of the season for the Wolves (10-14), the most for Odom, who is in his fourth year at the school. Odom's first team won seven games.
"I think we have a good shot at district if we keep playing defense the way we've played the last couple of weeks," Odom said.
Monterey led Harrisonburg 7-2 after one period and 17-12 at halftime.
The Wolves outscored the Bulldogs 15-10 in the third period.
"They were packing it in tight on my big boy (Josh Chapman), but Jacob Evans and Cade Crum came off the bench in the third period and hit three or four 3-pointers to loose it up a little bit," Odom said.
Ross Lipsey led Monterey with nine points, while Shawn McClenahan added eight points.
Monterey beat Delhi Charter 54-42 on Friday in Delhi.
"The kids are playing good defense," Odom said. "The biggest difference and the thing I am most proud of is that the last two games we have played unselfish ball and played as a team. It doesn't matter who is out there, the others are cheering them on and everybody is playing real hard."
Monterey's girls fell to Harrisonburg 44-26 after losing to Delhi Charter 42-28.
Against Harrisonburg, the Lady Bulldogs trailed 13-7 after one period and 19-15 at halftime.
Harrisonbur outscored Monterey 17-2 in the third period.
Kendall Lipsey led the Lady Wolves with seven points.
Monterey travels to Castor Friday before visiting Jena Tuesday. Monterey opens district play on Jan. 27 as Monterey hosts Forest.
