For the second year in a row, the Paris Wildcats erase a double-digit lead in the second half of a regional quarterfinal game. Last night, as heard on 101.9 KBUS, Paris trailed by 16 with four minutes left in the third quarter before outscoring Henderson by 26 points the rest of the way. Included in that was a 24-0 scoring run for the Cats. Trevon Dennis led Paris with 23 points including 12 in the fourth quarter.
Dallas will play number two ranked Dallas Carter on Friday night at 6:00 pm. The regional tournament will be played at the field house at Texas A&M Commerce. That game can be heard on 101.9 KBUS.
In other regional quarterfinal action, the Rivercrest Rebels season comes to an end but not before giving the number one ranked team in the state all they could handle. Martins Mill needed a buzzer-beating layup to defeat the Rebels 48-46 last night in Greenville.
On the diamond last night Prairiland defeated Queen City 8-1. Leading 2-1 in the sixth, the Patriots plates six runs to break the game open.
The Dallas Stars fell to Edmonton 2-1 in overtime despite having 16 more shots on goal. Former Star Alex Chiasson scored the game-winner on a power-play goal in the overtime period.
