Callaway cruised to a 61-50 region win over Eagle’s Landing on Saturday. The final score was not indicative of how the game flowed, however. 

The Cavaliers got off to a blazing start with DeShun Coleman scoring eight of his team high 15 points in the first quarter as the Callaway offense and defense worked in unison. By the end of the first quarter the Cavaliers had taken a 23-7 lead. 

The Chargers were able to cut the lead down to 14 points at the break, but it was still all Cavaliers in the opening phases of the game.

The second half saw the teams trade blows, but the Cavaliers were not able to get more separation, leading by 14 points heading to the fourth quarter. 

The Chargers were able to cut the lead to eight late in the game, but the win was in little doubt as the Cavaliers nailed their free throws and passed their way out of pressure. 

Natorrius Truitt scored 11 points and Javonte Parker had 10 to help lead the offensive attack. 

Callaway had eight different players score in the game as the bench helped power the home team to a win.

Callaway is now back over .500 (5-4) and are second in region 5-AA with a 4-1 region record. The Cavaliers will be back in action against region leaders Columbia on Tuesday on the road.
