Last night the Detroit Lady Eagles jumped out to a 14 point lead in the third quarter before Rivercrest mounted a comeback. Detroit would hold on for a 51-50 victory. Kiley Miller led Detroit with 15 points, including three from behind the arc and Ashlin Johnson finished with 13 points for Rivercrest.

On the boys side Rivercrest used some hot shooting from Shane Crabtree to defeat Detroit 78-56. Crabtree had 25 points for Rivercrest including 15 in the third quarter all from three-pointers. Kody Golightly Led Detroit with 16 points. The Prairiland girls and boy’s swept cooper at home last night. The girls won 56-40 while the boy’s won by over 20 points.

The Paris Lady Cats trailed by 18 at half to Liberty Eylau before climbing back in the game. The Lady Cats ultimately fell 49-45 in Texarkana. The Paris boys rolled to their fifth district win as they beat LE 71-45. Jaelyn Lee led Paris with 16 points. A win against Pittsburg on Friday will give Paris at least a share of the district title.

It was Bland 41 and Honey Grove 22 in girl’s basketball. Demetria Pruitt led the lady Warriors with 12 points.

The Clarksville girls beat Linden Kildare 54-33 to remain undefeated in the district.
