Thirty minutes had settled nothing.

Montgomery Academy had led for just a little more than 12 minutes in the contest and trailed for 11 minutes, an indication that Wednesday’s 3A Central Region championship match with Midfield was hard-fought and bitter, a physical war where neither team had the upper hand for long.

The Montgomery Catholic boys struggled to find any rhythm in their 44-43 win over Escambia County High in the 3A South Regional in Dothan on Saturday, but there was one consistent force behind the Knights.

Point guard B.J. Barker scored 18 points, including a pair of crucial free throws with 11.9 seconds left that allowed the Knights to advance to their first regional final since 2001.

If it looks like a rebuilding year for Trinity baseball, don’t be too concerned. Longtime Wildcat coach Ken Whittle has seen it before.

“If we’re playing our best baseball right now, I’m going to be very disappointed at the end,” Whittle said. “I still believe there’s three seasons – the beginning of the year, area play and the playoffs. We hope we can get to the playoffs.”

The Wildcats didn’t look too potent in their 2017 season opener, using some miscues from Andalusia for a 7-1 victory before dropping a late-afternoon game to Brewbaker Tech 3-2 on Monday afternoon at Jason Armstrong Memorial Field.

The Greene County girls were struggling to find any rhythm from their perimeter shooters in warmups. The Montgomery Academy girls, meanwhile, were trying to figure out how to run their offense without point guard Tara Katz.

As a result, both teams struggled to find any offensive spark in the first half of Saturday’s 3A Central Regional. The Eagles found the answer first, using a 12-0 run late in the third quarter to put away the Tigers 54-37 at Alabama State’s Dunn-Oliver Acadome.

MPS schools shut out on first day of Central Regional

Thursday wasn’t a very good day for MPS programs as all four teams in action ended their seasons abruptly.

No other school system in the state took a beating the way the Montgomery County school system did, although there is a chance of redemption with the boys and girls teams from Carver and Sidney Lanier in action on Friday.

AHSAA GIRLS SUB-REGIONALS: MA, Catholic coast to wins; Carver advances on buzzer-beater

The Montgomery Academy girls knew Monday’s sub-regional matchup with Indian Springs wouldn’t be challenging but it didn’t keep them from challenging themselves.

In the first six minutes, Indian Springs made just 1-of-6 shots and committed 14 turnovers, so the Eagles’ 25-2 lead took care of the outcome. Lost in the sloppy play and the substitutions that limited the final score to 59-25 was the play of junior center Caroline Kirkham, who had eight points in the first quarter and eight more in the third to finish with 16.

Survive and advance.

That might have been the theme for the Catholic girls in the Class 4A Area 4 championship game in the Catholic gym on Friday night.

It wasn’t their best performance, but a 38-37 win over BTW Magnet was enough to help the Lady Knights capture the area title and host a sub-regional game on Monday. Catholic will play Ashford at home tonight at 7 p.m.
