The #2 Jones Lady Longhorns were victorious over the Washington Warriors 65-28 while the Jones Longhorns fell short to the #3 Star-Spencer Bobcats Thursday evening at Jones High School.
The Lady Longhorns advance to the Winners bracket to take on Lexington Bulldogs at 6:30 on Saturday evening at Jones High School. The Boys teams will work their way though the Consolation bracket against Marlow at 3:00 on Friday.
The Lady Longhorns tenacious defense and effecient offense proved to be too much for Washington Thursday evening. A 22-0 run that stretched from the begining of the second quarter into the third quarter proved to be the difference in the game.
The Varsity Boys team hung tough with an extremely talented Bobcat team through the first half. But the #3 team in Class 3A found a way to stretch the seven point halftime lead to a sixteen point lead going into the 4th Quarter to pull away from the Longhorn squad.
The Boys will look to bounce back Friday afternoon against the 14-11 Marlow Outlaws. A victory on Friday would give the Longhorns an opportunity to advance to Area at 3:00 on Saturday.
The Girls will face the #15 Lexington Bulldogs Saturday evening at 6:30. No matter the outcome of the game on Saturday, the Lady Horns have a spot in the Area games next weekend in Chickasaha.
