Table Rock's Gabe Ferguson (1) and Liberty's Zach Costello (23) vie for a rebound on Tuesday as the rivals opened the 2021 season.

The Table Rock Middle boys basketball team on Tuesday turned a contest pitting last season’s second- and third-place Foothills Athletic Conference finishers into a runaway, downing crosstown rival Liberty on the road by a 57-6 final margin.

The Falcons were led by Kobe Johnson (18 points), Grant Martin (10 points), Gabe Ferguson (eight points) and Hank Johnson (six points). No Liberty individual statistics were available.

“We still have a lot to work on,” TR fifth-year coach Chip Lewis said, “but it was a great team win with contributions from every player.”

Liberty hosts Heritage today while TR is idle until playing at Heritage on Monday.
