Hopefully, we don't catch the flu bug. JK girls had two not dressed and 4 or 5 others not feeling well from what I was told. Don't know if they had flu or not, but it's going around. Midway friends said they were fighting it over there last week. Hopefully, it'll stay away from us. Big games Friday at ED

nah, Coach Davis had a game plan, kids executed. Won the game.
Oh yes great gameplan and execution by the team defensively that 3-2 extended zone really gave Goldsboro some problems and offensively Deion Venable had a game for the ages. Just a gritty scappy effort by Clinton........Win Thursday at Midway and Goldsboro beats East Duplin Clinton could get 2 seed for the conference tournament next week

No flu for Goldsboro. I was there. One of the best games at CHS on Senior night in a long time. Goldsboro is 25 points better than Clinton. However, Coach Davis and the troops made Goldboro play half court basketball. You just tip your hat to the Horses and move on to the next game.

How am I trolling? Before the Clinton-East Duplin game, Clinton posters were posting stating they were worried about the flu. Then, the flu hits and Clinton posters blamed the ED loss on the flu. Go back and read the posts. Its all there.

So a Clinton loss is attributed to the flu and not being outplayed or outcoached. Seems to be selling the victorious team a little short. Not one Clinton poster gave credit to anything the other team did. Nope, simply blamed the flu.

Clinton beats a superior team and its great coaching and a great game plan. Give credit where credit is due. You guys were already playing the flu card before the ED game was even played. I just figured that since this was a huge upset that Goldsboro might have had some players with the same flu strain, being they play the same teams Clinton could have caught it from. How do you explain the other 9 losses?

First of all TROLL no one up here acting like Clinton is a superior basketball team the 11-10 record proves that NO ONE for Goldboro's team was out with the flu all star players were on the court it was a great game plab and execution and alil bit of luck.....as far as the ED game East Duplin won clearly they were better that night. Clinton isnt the only team that has suffered from the flu several other teams i heard about the same thing one of the JK people said something about their girls going thru it,Midway aswell......you just up here trying to stir the pot idk why no one up here beating they chest it was a great win for Coach Davis and his team and we acknowledge that.

East Duplin defeated Midway 61-52 didnt see a score for the JK vs WRH game. But with winter weather heading into the area looks like all games Thursday will be cancelled NCHSAA has delayed seeding until Sunday so depending how bad snow is maybe get the last 2 tournament games Friday and Saturday still remains to be seen. Very important game for Clinton and East Duplin as both try and join Goldsboro in the 2A playoffs.

Wow.....flu might be better alternative that having to go to Kinston. Even with my limited HS basketball knowledge, I know they are legit.

Might need more than luck to keep the margin under 50.

That Kinston ED score is not as lopsided as I thought it would be. I think we may have a chance although a very tough challenge.

East Duplin played them very tough looking at the score early....it was 36-26 at halftime. Kinston is one of the best basketball programs in the state regardless of classification it will take a David vs Goliath type of effort to win especially at Kinston. I could see Coach Davis putting in a similar gameplan like he did vs Goldsboro.

You mean the one where per By the Fence, Goldsboro had the flu?

In all seriousness after talking with Coach Davis, he knows his team will have to play great basketball and still get some breaks to have a chance. His kids are determined to give it everything they have and yes, I would suspect a similar very slow paced game dictated by Clinton. To be in it in the 4th quarter will give them a chance to win it.

Hey, Clinton exposed our Weaknesses. We don't get back and we are not that physical. It was a great game and you guys got a great coach.. He told Anson Coach to keep pushing people around the state are noticing Anson's growth. His guards are quickest he ever seen.. Next year when Anson gets their bigs back. I see the final four run or Bust .. Anson returns everybody and then gets their two post starters back from suspension 6'9 sophomore tops in the state and 6'5 JR is an outstanding defender and rebounder. He can guard 1 through 5. I will say this that is the most physical and fastest outlet transition team we played all year.

The difference is Kinston will commit to playing defense. Goldsboro just wants a turnover, then a transition bucket. Make Goldsboro get in a stance and guard.
I'll be interested to watch Goldsboro vs. First Flight tonight. I think Goldsboro's athleticism will be the difference, unless FF makes 25 3's(they'll shoot 50).

I'll take Kinston by 20+ tonight as well. For whatever reason the nights I've seen Clinton I wasn't impressed.

Well definitely not our best team in the last 4-5 years but they will play hard Kinston is Kinston so honestly if i was a betting man smart money would go on them in a route. Coach Davis is building something special we got some good groups coming up if they continue to grow and buy in to his system i see alot of good in the future.

I might be wrong or have a bad memory in my old age, but I don't recall saying Gboro had the flu but simply asking IF they had the flu. If I did blame the flu on the result, then show me and I will eat my crow.

Go Darkhorses!

Goldsboro 70 FF 50 in the 4th not sure how much time is left but Cougars seem to have that one wrapped up

Clinton down 34-15 at halftime. Kinston used some big runs to build the lead and Clinton has turned the ball over gone 2-8 from the FT line and missed a ton of gimmes at the rim. Kinston's #3 Styles has killed us with his size and athleticism. Not really built to comeback especially against a team this good.
