HS Basketball Thursday Recap, Scores, Schedule

by: Scott McCaulley

A busy day highlighted by several close finishes in Postseason Basketball Action on Thursday.

In Boys Action in a battle of Lakes Area Teams at College of the Ozarks, Crane and Blue Eye went toe to toe for four quarters and two overtimes before the Pirates hold off the Bulldogs 42-41 in the Class 2 District Semi-finals. While Blue Eye led most of the game, Crane used their pressure to slowly get back in the game and eventually grab the win. Greenwood beat Billings in the other semi-final game 69-56.

A similar game at the Class 3 District in Strafford as the host and top seed Indians trailed a good part of the game to Forsyth. The Panthers though fell behind in the fourth quarter by seven only to rally back to within two just as time expired giving Strafford the 66-64 win. The other game at Strafford also was a two point game with Fair Grove beating Springfield Catholic 52-50.

In Arkansas, the Harrison Lady Goblins open 4A Regional Play in Berryville with a 62-46 win over Clarksville. The win for the Lady Goblins gets them to this afternoon’s Regional Semi-final against Ozark plus also earns them a Spot in the State Tournament. This afternoon’s game will air love on 94.9 FM/AM 1220 KHOZ.

Other Arkansas Winners include host Eureka Springs in the 2A Girls Regional (39-38 over Mountainburg),  Bergman Boys at 3A Regional in Waldron (62-52 over Charleston), and the Jasper Boys at the 1A Regional in Alpena (79-76 over New School).
