Christmas bright for Cobras with wins over Lawrence, McLaurin

By Corey McKinney
On Dec. 16, the Cobras traveled to Lawrence County to end a two game losing streak. Their hopes of doing so did not look too bright after the Cougars jumped to a big 22-12 lead at the end of the first.
Wesson did not give up so quickly. They bounced back in the second quarter by stepping their defense up and out-scoring their opponents in the second stanza, 24-9. Wesson would take a 36-31 lead at the half.
The third quarter was even between the two, with offenses that executed. The score going into the last quarter had Wesson on top 52-46.
Lawrence County tried to mount a comeback in the fourth quarter, but it was just 2 points shy, as Wesson would end their losing streak, winning 67-65.
Dartavious Dixon led the Cobras in just about everything with 19 points, 10 rebounds, and 6 assists. Marquis Lofton contributed 15 points, 8 steals, and 6 assists. Tyler Christmas also had 12 points and 5 rebounds.
Other Cobra points came from Anthony Jones with 11, Mack Smith with 5, and Tanner Allen with 5.
To keep the winning going, Wesson travelled to Florence Friday to take on the McLaurin Tigers. They did so, and won by making a statement on the road.
