WYTHEVILLE –– Galax coach Verl Brown often says that it’s not how you start but how you finish. The context of those words usually applies to a full season. But so far, it has been applicable on a game-by-game basis.
For the second straight night, the Maroon Tide followed up a so-so first half with a strong second half to pull away for a road win against a Hogoheegee District rival. Thursday it was George Wythe who withered in the final two periods as Galax zoomed away for a 51-39 nondistrict win.
