The Mount Airy Bears boys bested the Forbush Falcons last night by a score a 67-48 in the AES Thanksgiving Classic.
The score at the end of each quarter was as follows: first — Mount Airy 15, Forbush, 5 ; second — Mount Airy 19, Forbush 19; third — Mount Airy 35, Forbush 49; and fourth — Mount Airy 48, Forbush, 67.
Kahleel Dailey was the game high scorer, sinking 20 points. Carson Mounce had seven points, Austin Taylor had eight, Freshman Sean Best scored eight, and Caleb Horton scored six.
Mount Airy Head Coach Levi Goins said, “I was impressed with our effort. We jumped on some loose balls that we let go last night, the intensity was better. We jumped out to a 15- 1 lead and maintained the defensive pressure.”
Darius Gwyn stole at least three balls to set up assists and scored four points. Many others on the team contributed at least two points.
The Bears will play in Elkin on Friday and the first conference game is against North Surry on Dec. 4.
