EAST BEND — Last week saw the Forbush Falcons girls basketball team continue its strong run it’s been on over the past few weeks, while the boys saw they still have a bit to work on if they’re to be an elite team in the Western Piedmont Athletic Conference.

The Forbush Falcons girls basketball team won Tuesday’s away conference game against South Stokes by a score of 60-31. The boys, however, lost Tuesday’s away conference game against South Stokes by a score of 75-65. Despite the loss, senior Hunter Chapman scored 24 points.

The Forbush Falcons girls basketball team won Wednesday’s home non-conference game against East Wilkes by a score of 58-50. The boys got their lone win of the week, in a home non-conference game against East Wilkes by a score of 97-77. Four players scored double digits, with senior Lucas Kennedy dominating from three-point range with seven. Kennedy finished with 30 points, while Chapman got 24 points for the second straight game.

The Forbush Falcons girls basketball team won Friday’s home conference game against West Stokes by a score of 58-32. The boys lost Friday’s home conference game against West Stokes by a score of 67-48.

After Friday night, the Forbush girls kept pace with Surry Central and North Surry with a 12-3 record, and 2-0 record in conference play. Out of all the teams in the conference, the Falcons have the best overall record. The boys team, meanwhile, fell to 0-2 in conference play with a 7-7 record overall. They’ll need a strong finish down the stretch if they’re to climb up towards the top of the conference standings.
