Ware Falls to Coffee at Home 64-51

The Ware County Gators opened up 2018 with a 64-51 loss to 6A Coffee High at home last night in the Gator Den. The Gators played the Trojans toe to toe for three quarters but only connecting on two free throws in the second quarter was too much for the young Gator team to overcome.

The Gators have struggled putting together four consecutive quarters all season, however, they have not played a region game yet. The Gators will travel to Guyton on Friday to take on South Effingham in the first region contest of the season.

AJ Pinkney and Adarius Scott led the Gators with 15 points each. Complete Box Score and scoring recap below.
