It didn't take long for South Oldham to assert themselves during Thursday night's game against Western Hills, blitzing the hapless Wolverines 91-47 in a track meet that was over almost as soon as it began.
After trading baskets to start the game, the Dragons opened up a 24-6 run to close the quarter behind 10 points from senior forward Shae Goodlett. In the second quarter, DeVonte Jones took over the scoring load, chipping in 9 of his own to help South's lead balloon to 56-18 at the half.
From there, South Oldham Coach Steve Simpson turned it over to the junior varsity squad to close out and they outscored the Western Hills' varsity 37-29 the rest of the way to secure the Dragons' fourth win of the season.
Goodlett finished as the game's leading scorer with 22, while Jones added a double-double of 16 points and 11 rebounds to pace the team.
Starting Dec. 20, South Oldham will head to the road for the next nine games before returning to The Dungeon at 7:30 p.m. on Jan. 14 against No. 4 Bullitt East.
On Jan. 4, South will travel to Oldham County for an important district game that could decide the No. 1 seed in the 29th district tournament.
The team will also welcome back Jack Sherry next week, who was forced to sit the first seven games of the season for a violation of team rules. Sherry was the team's leading 3-point shooter last season, connecting on 31 percent (45-147) of his shots from behind the arc.
