Behind smothering defense and Ty Cockfield’s game-high 31 points, Johnson’s victory over Southeast Whitfield was never in question. The Knights now have to hope it didn’t come at too high of a price. Johnson defeated Southeast Whitfield 72-44 in the opening round of the Class AAAA playoffs on Thursday at the Frank J. Knight gymnasium in Oakwood, but second-leading scorer Rod English left the game late in the third quarter with an ankle injury and his status is uncertain for the Knights’ second-round game against West Laurens.
