Bryant Blue led 23-21 going into the fourth quarter but Conway Blue came away with a 36-29 victory.

The game was tied at 5 after a quarter. Bryant Blue held a 16-15 edge at the half.

Grayson Ruple led the Hornets with 13 points. Evan Lee added 7 with Logan Alleni and Jordan Gentry scoring 3 each. Jacob Pipkin finished with 2 and Tanner Ezell 1.

“We played a good game,” commented Hornets coach Derek McGrew. “We had some critical turnovers in the fourth quarter.
