AFTON - Chuckey-Doak's boys ran their way to an early lead and never looked back as they defeated West Greene at home Tuesday night, 80-47, in District 2-AA action.

The Black Knights (12-8 overall, 6-2 district) pushed the tempo and moved the ball around, led by Ben Gridley with 17 points and Cory Swinney with 16.

"I thought they did great job," Chuckey- Doak head coach Sam Broyles said. "We've really been working on pushing the pace in practice and it paid off tonight. We've been working hard on getting into our offense quickly and you saw the results of that tonight."

"Cory Swinney had six assists in the first half. That was the best ball movement I've seen out of this team and that is what it takes. When we're moving the ball, everybody goes little harder and we get better looks."

The perimeter tandem of Johnson and Gridley, accompanied by point guard Garrett Johnson, pressured the Buffaloes' front court all evening, forcing turnovers which consistently resulted in points.

Chuckey-Doak started slow to open the game as West Greene (1-13, 0-7) dropped in seven unanswered points in the first three minutes of the first quarter.

In the final five minutes of the opening period, though, the Black Knights outscored West Greene 22-6. Swinney gave Chuckey-Doak a lead they would never relinquish when he received a Josh Lamb pass from across the lane and laid it off the glass.

On two consecutive possessions, Swinney picked the Buffaloes' pocket and moved the ball up court to Birkir Vidisson who connected on each dish. The Black Knights finished the first quarter up 25-13.

West Greene started the second quarter with some tough defense. The Buffs kept Chuckey-Doak out of the scoring column for almost two minutes to start the quarter but things quickly changed.

The Black Knights flipped the switch and scored 10 points in the next 1:08. The first six of those came from Gridley as Chuckey-Doak Pushed their lead to 22.

West Greene closed the quarter strong, narrowing the gap to 12 by intermission. Tanner Early scored five in the final portions of the half and led the Buffaloes with 17 points in the contest.

Coming out of halftime the Black Knights focused more on their inside presence, as posts Lamb and Taylor Johnson each went for four. Birkir Vidisson added five hard earned points in the paint in the period. The Chuckey-Doak lead doubled to 24 points by the third quarter.

In the final period Chuckey-Doak continued their defensive dominance allowing only eight points despite their three primary perimeter players exiting early.

Garrett Johnson and Swinney saw limited minutes due to foul problems and Gridley was sent to the locker room early after an unintentional blow to the eye.
