Maybe but East Surry is certainly good enough to win, especially if Murphy isn't on their A game.East Surry is very good, but Murphy is better than everyone else this year.
I thought the same about the 2nd half of yesterday's Cherokee game. Came out trying to run clock instead of just playing. Gave Cherokee too much hope of a comeback. Team was really out if rhythm because of it the entire half.Maybe but East Surry is certainly good enough to win, especially if Murphy isn't on their A game.
One thing I hope not to see is Murphy, if gets a bit of a cushion, taking their foot off the accelerator:Smoky Mountain i.e. playing not to lose instead of staying aggressive. It happened last year in the Murphy - East Surry game in the 2nd half and that's what really cost them that game, not a miracle three pointer at the buzzer.
