LOUDON- Sequoyah struggled in their first test with the Redskins in the Chop House earlier
this year. That was understandable
as Loudon's boys are off to their best start through nine games, 7-2, since 2002, when the Redskins started 8-1.

The Redskins were able to take a lead into the half and hold off a late push on Tuesday night, winning 56-53.
Down 15-13 after the first quarter, point guard Hayden Webb caught fire, scoring 15 points in the second with. Webb hit five consecutive shots, including three from behind the arc, as he led the Redskins to a 32-23 lead at the half. Webb finished with 17 in the first half and 25 for the game, despite cooling down in the second half.

Sequoyah would not go away quietly, though, and made a strong push in the fourth quarter.
With two minutes left in the game Loudon led by two. But a with two quick buckets off of Redskins turnovers and offensive rebounds, the Chiefs cut the lead to 50-48.

A tie ball gave possession back to Sequoyah with 1:21 remaining,
but Tyler Ferguson atoned for a turnover two possessions before with a steal. quick pass to Webb and a foul by Sequoyah's JJ Harmon put Loudon at the free throw line.
Webb knocked down both shots to push the lead back to four points, 52-48.
Shon Stevens hit a three for Sequoyah and Loudon's Chris Chenault was fouled with 42.6 on the clock.

Chenault hit both shots and Loudon called for time out. Stevens scored on a lay up out of the time out to make it a one-point game once again with about 30 seconds lft.
Loudon in bounded the ball and ran over half the clock time off before Sequoyah finally fouled to put Webb at the line with 12.6 left to play.
Webb hit both shots, and as time expired Sequoyah's Andrew Millsaps missed a contested three-point shot as Hardy defended.
