Hawks rise up for win

BERRYVILLE -- One week ago, Skyline strolled into the fourth quarter in a game against Clarke County with a lead, only to see it evaporate in a matter of minutes. The Hawks had led through the first three quarters, but faltered late to drop their first game of the season. Tuesday night, however, there would be no collapse against the Eagles. comments

Visiting Eagles end Skyline's win streak

FRONT ROYAL -- In a physical matchup, Clarke County proved to be too much for host Skyline during the second and third quarters en route to a 40-33 victory Tuesday, snapping the Hawks' four-game winning streak. "We played a poor game, but we were still in it right until the end," Hawks coach Jim Kenney said. "The effort was there tonight, but we just couldn't find that spark that we have had during the last four games coming into tonight." comments

Thomasson sparks Skyline past Clarke County

BERRYVILLE -- With the score knotted at 46 and less than two minutes to play, both teams looked for someone to step up. After Clarke County missed an open jump shot, Skyline junior Oshene Kelly grabbed one of her game-high 24 rebounds and Skyline took possession. "We had our chances tonight," Eagles coach Tim Lawrence said. "We had a good shot with the game tied, but it didn't go down. You have to give Skyline credit for hitting the shots when they needed to." comments

Strong second half propels Warriors

STEPHENS CITY -- On paper, Sherando's 28-0 victory over Skyline on Friday night might appear to have been an easy win for the Warriors, but it was anything but that. The Hawks' defense kept Sherando in check offensively for most of the first three quarters of the game, leaving the door open for a Skyline upset. Unfortunately for the Hawks, the Warriors' powerful offensive line, and the insertion of tailback Tre Porter spelled doom for Skyline. comments
