VARNELL — Lakeview-Fort Oglethorpe High School brought two undefeated varsity basketball teams to play Coahulla Creek Tuesday night.

Despite scares from both the Coahulla Creek boys and girls, LFO's teams remained undefeated.

In the boys game, it took a big second half from LFO (13-0) for the Warriors to down Coahulla Creek (6-4) 76-61.

Lucas Mulkey scored 10 first-quarter points to help push the Colts to a 22-20 lead after the first, and Coahulla Creek trailed just 35-34 at halftime, even as LFO standout Brent Bowman rained a few 3-pointers and Jamichael Davis caused havoc in the backcourt, getting steals and deflections.

LFO scored the final five points of the third quarter to get its first double-digit advantage of the night, and Coahulla Creek couldn't cut the Warrior advantage in the final frame.

Will Locke led Coahulla Creek with 16 points, with seven coming in the fourth quarter as the Colts tried to claw back into the game. Mulkey finished with 14 and hit three shots from behind the 3-point arc, while Mario Edwards scored 12.

The girls game earlier in the evening was the inverse of the boys, with LFO (14-0) getting a big first half lead over Coahulla Creek (4-7) and holding on for a 65-54 win.

The Lady Colts trailed LFO 42-23 at halftime, but mounted a furious comeback after half, getting the deficit down under 10 early in the fourth after back-to-back 3-pointers by Shea Poe and Brinkley Reed.

Coahulla Creek got the lead down to as little as eight, but couldn't go much further, as LFO hit a few key long-range shots themselves to keep the Lady Colts from completing the comeback.

Reed led Coahulla with 25 points, while Poe scored 12 and Aubree Langley kicked in 11 points.

Coahulla Creek's teams play again Friday at LaFayette, with the girls starting the night at 7.

For the boys, it will be another matchup against an undefeated Region 6-3A opponent. LaFayette's boys enter the game at 12-0.
