Snead scored 14 points and grabbed eight rebounds while going 5-for-6 at the line for the game.


Goochland built a 17-7 lead in the first quarter and Greensville never managed to get back into after that. By halftime it was a 24-18 lead but the Bulldogs were still in control and stretched the lead back out to 10 at 41-31 in the third quarter.


Tyquan Odom finished with 15 points to lead Greensville.
