The Mt. Juliet boys and girls basketball teams let early leads slip away Thursday, as they started the season with losses to Oakland in the Hall of Fame Classic opening games.

The girls got off to a fast 11-0 lead midway through the first quarter, hitting three 3-pointers in a row. However, the Oakland girls started to get into a rhythm, and they cut the Lady Bears lead down to seven to end the first quarter down 15-8. 

A few turnovers and missed shots let Oakland pull a little closer by the half, 23-19. Ronjanae DeGray led the team with six points in the first half. Paris Lawson led the way for the Lady Patriots with nine points in the first half. 

The Oakland girls came out strong in the third quarter. Ansley Eubank and Shelby Gibson scored the majority of the points in the third, while DeGray and Ashley Roby combined for 11 points for the Lady Bears. Mt. Juliet continued having turnover problems and went into the fourth down 40-35. The Lady Bears only scored five more points to end the game, while Oakland was able to score 16 more and win 56-40. 

DeGray finished the game with 12 points. 

The Mt. Juliet Boys team had almost the exact start and outcome as the girls did. The Bears jumped out to a quick 11-0 lead and played great defense. 

They were rebounding well, and Oakland couldn’t hit a shot. After the quick start, it was all Oakland led by Seniors T.J. Seward and Ricky Dunnaway. The Bears could not contain them, as Seward was hot from the 3-point line and 6-7 Ricky Dunnaway finshed in the paint. Seward hit five 3-points in the first half and Dunnaway had 12 points. Austin Brown led Mt. Juliet with six points. The Bears were down 32-19 at the half. 

Mt. Juliet continued to fight hard in the second half. They were able to contain Seward and Dunnaway in the third quarter. The Bears spread the points around as Will Byrum, Tyler Faulkenberry, Ben Harned, Austin Brown and J.R. Sanders all got points, but it wasn’t enough as the Patriots were up 50-32 going into the fourth. 

In the end, the Patriots were too strong for the Bears, as they fell 62-41. Dunnaway finished with 20 points and Austin Brown, of Mt. Juliet, finished with 12 points. 

The boys and girls next game will be Friday, at Hillsboro High School. The girls game starts at 6 p.m. and the boys start at 7:30 p.m.

Win and most likely get in was the goal for the Golden Bears Thursday night in Portland. 

Mt. Juliet needed a win to get into the TSSAA State Playoffs, and that’s just what the got in an easy 49-0 rout of the Panthers. 

The Panthers got the opening possession, but the Bears forced a three and out with a quarterback sack by Bobby Kisler on third down. It took the Bears seven plays to get on the board with a 32-yard touchdown run by Kyle Mahler to go up 7-0. 

Mt. Juliet took advantage of good field position on their next drive and went up 14-0 on a 2-yard touchdown run by Aidan Raines. 

The Bears forced another Panther punt and drove down the field to the Portland 6-yard line. Kyle Mahler had a 49-yard run on the drive, but they couldn’t score and attempted a fake field goal that failed.

Mt. Juliet’s defense would not break as Peyton Haynes returned an interception 14 yards to extend their lead 21-0. 

The Bears defense didn’t even bend. Portland didn’t get past their own 32-yard line the entire first half.  After another Panther punt, the Bears capitalized with a 51-yard touchdown strike from Nolan Chowbay to Mahler to go up 28-0. 

The Bears got the ball right back when Panther quarterback Ethan Brummett attempted an option pass to Malik Maxwell, who missed, and was recovered by Tavner Simmons of Mt. Juliet. The Bears responded quickly as Chowbay hit Alex Landis for a 14-yard touchdown pass to go into the half leading 35-0. Kyle Mahler finished the half with over 80 rushing yards and two total touchdowns. Nolan Chowbay had two passing touchdowns. 

The second half started with a running clock and the second team offense and defense in for the Bears. Portland forced a Mt. Juliet punt and had their most successful drive of the game, getting into Bears territory for the first time and going down to the 32-yard line. Portland just couldn’t get it done as they turned the ball over on downs. Kisler recorded his second sack of the game on the drive. 

Mt. Juliet would get two more scores with a 21-yard touchdown run by Colin Williams and a blocked punt in the endzone recovered by Braden Lovett for a final score of 49-0. 

The Bears finish the regular season with a 5-5 record and will play at Oakland High School in Murfreesboro at 7 p.m. this Friday.
