LaFayette Ramblers

A 23-5 advantage after the first quarter of play was plenty of breathing room for the LaFayette Ramblers on Thursday as they routed South Greene (Tenn.), 68-37, on the first night of the Whitwell Christmas Tournament in Marion County.

Jon Morgan had 25 points in the win. Alex Kelehear finished with 15, while Andrew Pendergrass added nine.

Sam Meade had 12 points to pace South Greene.

LaFayette (11-1 overall) will play at 4:30 p.m. Central time on Friday against either Sequatchie County or Huntland in the semifinals.
