Henrico boys, Highland Springs girls roll into Central Region finals

Posted: Updated:
RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

For the second straight season, the Henrico boys and Highland Springs girls will play for a Central Region basketball championship, as both earned region title game spots with wins on Friday.

The Warrior boys dominated from the tip-off and led by as many as 35 points to top L.C. Bird, 67-32.  Henrico held a 21-5 lead after a quarter, and closed the game by out-scoring the Skyhawks, 18-5, in the fourth quarter.  Tim Jones and Stephen Booker paced the Warriors with 14 points, while Booker added 12 rebounds.  Marvin Smith also tallied a double-double, with 13 points and 13 boards.

Henrico moves on to face John Marshall in the Central Region championship game.  The Warriors took care of the Justices earlier this season, 84-66, in the Times Dispatch Tournament.

Highland Springs found itself trailing Cosby by seven after a quarter, but came back to take a three point lead by halftime and went on for the 64-52 win.  Cosby would take a one point lead in the third quarter, but a big fourth frame paced the Springers to the victory.  De'June Robinson led the way for Highland Springs with 16 points.

The Springers advance to face L.C. Bird in the region title game. That game will tip off at 6:00pm on Monday at the Siegel Center.  The boys match-up featuring Henrico and John Marshall will follow at 7:45pm.
