VINEMONT — Brody Peppers peppered Vinemont for a game-high 22 points to help Cold Springs' varsity boys earn a 50-34 road victory over the Red and White on Tuesday night.
The Blue and Gold improved to 14-5 this season, while Vinemont dropped to 7-13.
Despite the win, Cold Springs coach Tim Willoughby didn't necessarily like what he saw from his squad at times.
"Happy to win, especially on the road," he said. "But I didn't think our effort was very good tonight. To be totally honest, we've had some bad practice days and are doing things that good teams don't do in practice. That sort of showed tonight. And if we don't get it cleaned up, we aren't going to accomplish much this year. Even in the best of circumstances, you may not accomplish what you want. But if we don't get things turned around, we're going to have a disappointing end to our season."
Seth Williams reached double figures with 10 points, while Adam Hill (five), Tanner Kilgo (four), Roberto Ayala (four), Micah Calvert (three) and Ayden Alexander (two) also scored.
Collin Teichmiller led Vinemont with 11 points, while Ryan Stewart added eight.
Curtis Kennedy (six), Caleb Sharpe (five), Colby Miller (two) and Will Rhodes (two) rounded out the scoring for coach Preston Boyd's squad.
% Cold Springs 62, Vinemont 35: The Class 2A No. 7 Lady Eagles burst out of the gate strong, building a large lead and pulling away early for the road win.
Cold Springs (13-5) led 17-2 after the first quarter and 37-13 at halftime.
Toni West paved the way with 15 points, while Makayla Taylor (11) and Brooke Crider (nine) were next in line.
Anna Kate Voce (eight), Lacey Rice (seven), Kyla Aaron (six) and Shay Sellers (six) also contributed offensively.
"I'm very proud of the way our girls are playing at this point in the season," Cold Springs coach Tammy West said. "We've been working really hard, and I think it is showing. Effort has never been an issue with this group of girls. They give it all they have every night and every day at practice."
McKenna Kline (12) provided the best offensive showing for the Lady Eagles.
Reagan Robinson (six), Morgan Flanigan (six), Maggie Burks (five), Madysen Hacker (five) and Berkley Gable (one) pitched in as well.
