Colonial Forge (26-2), Hylton (14-11), Gar-Field (8-11)

Skinny: Hylton reached the conference finals last season and carried a lead into halftime against eventual 6A state champion Colonial Forge. The Bulldogs return the services of all-conference guard Josh Peterson (10 points per game). O'Connell transfers Jerry Carter and Tyland Crawford, who both played their freshman campaigns at Hylton before donning Knights uniforms last season, are back on Spriggs Road and figure to be big contributors for the Bulldogs. …

High school boys basketball: Colonial Forge gives up key test to Hylton

 

BY NATHAN WARTERS 


WOODBRIDGE — When Colonial Forge lost to defending 3A state champion John Marshall in its second game of the season back on Dec. 9, it came away sufficiently motivated and responded with 17 straight wins. The Eagles, who have their eyes on winning a second straight 6A state title, are hoping their most recent adversity has a similar effect.


Playing without sharpshooting guard Marco Haskins for the second straight game, Colonial Forge struggled to make baskets in a 60–54 loss to host Hylton on Tuesday night. The Bulldogs ended the Eagles’ streak and took over sole possession of first place in the Conference 4 standings with one game remaining in the regular season. The Eagles, 45–3 the last two seasons, have some work to do to make a repeat trip to the 6A-South Region playoffs. The surest way would be to win next week’s Conference 4 tournament championship.


Hylton (15–6, 5–0) played without standout junior swingman Jerry Carter, who is averaging 22 points per game this season but has missed multiple contests with a knee injury. Junior shooting guard Tyland Crawford picked up the slack with 17 points.


The Eagles (18–2, 4–1) led 43–32 near the midway point of the third quarter. The Bulldogs ended the period with a 9-2 run to cut the deficit to four and then out-scored Forge 19–9 in the fourth quarter. Hylton scored seven straight points, punctuated by two free throws and a layup by Crawford, to take a 52–49 lead with 3:45 remaining. Shortly after that, Eagles guard T.J. Flood made a jumper to cut the Bulldogs’ advantage to one. Colonial Forge went scoreless over the next 3:14. It ended the drought with a Flood 3-pointer from the right wing with 11.6 seconds remaining. It was the Eagles only long-range jumper of the game.

Hylton adjusts to life without top scorer Jerry Carter

By David Fawcett


Hylton High School’s run to only its second outright regular-season conference title in school history came at a cost, leaving the celebration a bittersweet one. The Bulldogs (16-6) lost leading scorer Jerry Carter for the season after it was discovered he had partial tears in the patellar tendons of both knees. Carter had been battling what he believed to be tendonitis even before the season started.


The Bulldogs received a timely return from junior Tyland Crawford, who missed Hylton’s first eight games recovering from a broken foot he suffered in July during an AAU Tournament in Las Vegas. Crawford, who also transferred from O’Connell, has been a spark in his 14 games.

 

With Carter out, Crawford is the team’s top scorer at 13.2 points a game and is capable of scoring inside and out. Crawford, like Carter, was named all-Conference 4. “He’s a monster and real asset for us,” Smith said. “He’s a freak of nature.”
