Johnson's Career High Keeps Garner Perfect


Garner and Wake Forest-Rolesville dueled for the second night in a row, this time the scene shifted to Larry Lindsay Gym where the Trojans put up their highest point total of the season and Donald Johnson set a career high with 34 points as Garner blasted the Cougars 91-77.

Garner (9-0, 3-0) got off to a slow start and did not hit their first basket until the six minute mark of the opening quarter, however the Cougars also had a cold start and it was only a three point lead when the Trojans scored their first basket. However, Garner shook off the sluggish start and took a 26-11 lead after the first quarter. In the opening frame, Johnson put up 10 points to lead all scorers in the first.

Wake Forest-Rolesville (1-9. 1-3) tried to climb back into the contest in the second quarter and they were lead by Cliff Jones who scored six of his eight first half points in the second quarter. But, the Trojans did a good job limiting the points by Dylan Woodham who lit the Trojans up the previous night.

The saving grace on offense in the second quarter for Garner was, Josh McClain who played an outstanding second quarter and scored seven points in the first half, five of them coming from the line in the second quarter. As a result, the Trojans took a 48-27 lead into the locker room.

Just like last night, the Cougars came out on fire in the third stanza and controlled the pace of play going on a 14-5 run to being the third and with two minutes to play in the quarter, the Garner lead was trimmed to eight points. That's when the Trojans finally got their groove back and took a 63-50 lead to the fourth.

In that final quarter, Johnson put the team on his back and carried Garner to the finish line as he scored 13 of his career high 34 in the fourth quarter. Meanwhile, WFR continued to play hard and cut the Trojan lead to eight with just under one minute to play. However, the Trojans hit their free throws down the stretch to end the game with a 91-77 victory.

The 91 points that the Trojans scored are the most that an Eddie Gray team has scored since January 9, 2009 when the men of Troy put up 96 against the Golden Hawks of Holly Springs.

Garner will now take the holiday break off and return to action on January 4th when they host Smithfield-Selma.

JV Boys End 2010 with Big Win

For the second night in a row the Trojans blasted Wake Forest-Rolesville. Tonight, Coach Bloms and the Trojans defeated the Cougars by 18 with a 80-62 victory. Garner used a big third quarter to break open the game.

Garner ends the 2010 portion of their season with just one loss and will be back in action on Monday at Athens Drive when they take on the Jaguars in the opening game of their Christmas Tournament.

Storage & Moving at Your Doorstep

Free Throw Line Propels Garner to Lopsided Victory


There is an old adage to take advantage of your opportunities, and the Varsity Boys basketball team at Garner High School did that on Monday night. The Trojans shot 74 percent from the free throw line for the game as they routed Wake Forest-Rolesville 79-58.

Garner (8-0, 3-0) used a big first quarter to move out to an early 21-13 lead after the first period. In the opening stanza, the Trojans were 4/4 from the line and they got their outside shooting working too. Gavin Wilson and Larry Richardson both hit some big first quarter three's to pace the Trojans.

In the second quarter, the charity stripe was once again good to the men of Troy as they did not miss a free throw until the two minute mark of the half, as they shot 80 (12/15) percent for the half, from the line. Garner had a nice compliment inside in the second quarter, as Dominique Reed scored nine of his 11 points in the second quarter to give the Trojans a comfortable 41-28 halftime advantage.

Wake Forest-Rolesville (1-7, 1-3) was able to stay in the game thanks to the outside shooting of Dylan Woodham who chipped in 11 first half points. Of those 11, nine of the points came from beyond the arc.

The Cougars came out of the locker room and began the third quarter by taking control of the pace of play. Woodham scored eight points in the third quarter, and finished with 18, to keep pull WFR to within eight midway through the quarter. Garner was able to maintain their advantage thanks to Deion Dorsey who scored six points in the third quarter, and four of them from the line, which kept the Trojans in front by a 59-42 margin.

Garner played most of their second team in the fourth quarter as they came in and did an outstanding job and built the Trojan lead. Once the first team came back in halfway through the quarter, the Trojans were up by double digits. That's when Wilson and Donald Johnson caught fire combining for three, three point baskets in as many possessions to push the lead to 20.

With the comfortable lead, Eddie Gray, emptied his bench as everyone on the roster saw the floor as Garner coasted to a 79-58 win.

The Trojans are back in action on Tuesday night for their final game before the holiday break as they travel to Wake Forest-Rolesville for a 7:00 tip-off.

JV Boys Bounce Back with Big Win

After a tough loss to Knightdale on Friday night, the JV Boys basketball squad used a big first half to cruise to a 68-48 win.

Garner played an athletic first half and played above the rim and an up tempo game to take an eight point lead into the locker room. Then, in the second half, Garner was just too deep on the bench for the slow paced Cougars as Garner eased their way to a 20 point, 68-48 win.

The Trojans are back in action on Tuesday night when they travel to Wake Forest-Rolesville for a 5:30 tip-off.

At Sport Clips, guys win!!!

Third Quarter Rally Propels Trojans to Victory


After trailing by three at halftime, the Garner Trojans used a 23 point third quarter to ease past the Knightdale Knights 76-61 on Friday night at Knightdale High School to keep the Trojans perfect on the young season.

Knightdale (5-6, 1-3) started fast in the opening quarter racing out to a four point lead as Garner struggled to get things going on offense. The Trojans finally got things going as they feed the ball to the post where Dominique Reed scored six of his 11 points in the first quarter, to put the Garner in the lead 18-14 after the first stanza. However, the Trojans left several points on the board as they were 0-5 from the line in the first.

In the second quarter, Garner (7-0, 3-0) again struggled to find their stroke as Knightdale Sophomore, Deshaun Griffin scored six points in the second stanza which gave the Knights a 29-26 lead at halftime.

After halftime, Garner came out on fire as the outside shooters got hot as on back to back possessions, Gavin Wilson drained three point shots, but not to be out done, Donald Johnson also caught fire from outside. As a result, Garner erased the three point deficit and took a 52-38 lead into the final quarter.

Johnson took over for the Trojans in the final quarter as he scored 10 of his game high 23 points in the fourth quarter to keep Garner at a safe distance as they never trailed again. With the 76-61 win, the Trojans break a two-game losing streak to Knightdale.

Varsity Girls Fall to Knightdale

Coach Mays and the Varsity Girls had a tough time getting their rhythm in the first quarter, falling behind 4-0 to start the contest, however they cut the lead to five, at 30-25 at the break.

But, the Knights were too much in the third quarter as they built a lead. Garner hit the comeback trail in the final quarter and cut the lead to three with under a minute to play, but, Knightdale hit their free throws down the stretch to come away with a 48-43 win.

Another Late Rally Keeps Garner atop the Conference


Garner and Clayton played another thriller on Tuesday night at Trojan Coliseum, and in a game of runs, it was the Trojans who had the last spurt to slip past the Comets 80-77 to stay atop the Greater Neuse River.

Clayton (5-1, 1-1) began the game on a 5-0 run behind great shooting from Stevy Wright and Adam Parrish, however Garner (6-0, 2-0) answered right back with a 5-0 of their own to knot the game at 10 in the early stages of the first quarter.

After a tight first quarter, the teams ended the period knotted at 16 as Garner caught fire from Donald Johnson and Gavin Wilson.

The second quarter was more back and fourth as Clayton used the inside play of Freshman, Gary Clark to take the lead, however, Garner refused to die in the first half and trailed only by two points at the break, thanks to Dominique Reed who chipped in 10 first half points to keep the men of Troy close.

In the third stanza, Garner got big production from Johnson who scored seven points to give Garner a four point lead. However, Clayton came right back thanks to the of Parrish who chipped in eight points in the quarter to keep the game tied at 57 heading to the fourth quarter.

Clayton began to pull away in the final quarter leading by as many as nine points as Clark could not be stopped inside as he finished with 19 points to lead the Comets.

Garner tried to get back in the game, but with 2:30 left in the game, the Clayton still had a nine point lead. To the credit of the Trojans, they came back with the help of their defensive play and cut the lead down to one with just 20 seconds left.

Clayton then in-bounded the basketball where Wilson stole the pass and fired it ahead to Josh McClain who laid it in for the one point Garner lead. On the ensuing possession, Clayton drove into the paint but an offensive foul was called on Anthony Gaskins. Clayton fouled Johnson on the inbound, where he went to the line, made both foul shots and give the Trojans a three point lead.

Garner stole the inbound pass as time expired and the Trojans came back for a big 80-77 win. The Trojans will hit the road on Friday night at 7:30 when they travel to Knightdale for a 7:30 tip off.


Gavin Wilson 24 (career high), Donald Johnson 19, Dominique Reed 14, Josh McClain 6, Larry Richardson 6, Cliff Holt 5, Emmanuel McClain 4, Deion Dorsey 2.

Trojans Survive Enloe to Break Streak


Entering play tonight Garner had lost the last eight meetings with the Enloe Eagles and on Tuesday night, the Trojans were pushed to the limit before breaking the streak in overtime, 64-61.

Garner (4-0) took the early advantage in the first quarter jumping out to a 15-8 lead after the first quarter. The early advantage for the Trojans were caused by great hussel plays on the floor.

However, Enloe (3-3) came back in the second quarter and outscored Garner 15-8 to even the score at the break, 23 all.

In the second half, Garner got in foul trouble in the third quarter but the Trojans managed to hang tough and going to the fourth and final stanza, the contest was still knotted, this time at 38.

It didn't take long in the fourth quarter for the Eagles to exploit the Garner foul trouble and in the blink of an eye, Enloe had a 10 point lead, which prompted Coach Gray to call a timeout.

With five minutes to go in the game, Garner was still down by seven but began on the comeback trail and cut the lead down to two points late in the game and eventually took a two-point lead late in the contest. Enloe came back and forced overtime with the score tied at 57.

In the overtime period, all of Garner's points came from the free throw line. Meanwhile, Enloe was still getting points down low to keep the game close. But, in the end, it was the free throws that the Trojans were able to hit which pushed them over the top as they survived a shot at the buzzer to edge Enloe 64-61.

Garner will open up Greater Neuse River Conference play on Friday night when they travel to West Johnston for a 7:30 tip off.


Garner: Donald Johnson 19, Dominique Reed 14, Gavin Wilson 12, Josh McClain 7, Emmanuel McClain 4, Larry Richardson 3, Cliff Holt, 2, Deion Dorsey 2, DeAnthony Harris 1

Coach Gray and his squad came out for the second half ready to play and so did Donald Johnson as he led Garner with 13 second half points to lead the Trojans with 19 for the game as the Trojans had a 56-34 lead going to the final stanza and rolled in the fourth to a 79-46 win.

They will be back in action on Tuesday when they travel to Enloe for a 7:30 tip.
