REGION QUARTERFINALS—BOYS SATURDAY

R2AAA: Clinton 52 Farragut 50…In by far the most competitive game of the Region quarterfinals, the Dragons survived and advanced at home in a back-and-forth affair not decided until Jeremiah Blauvelt blocked a shot that would have tied the game as time expired. Clinton used a combination of tough defense, clutch free throw shooting and some timely three-pointers to overcome the Admirals, who kept it close all night and led at halftime by 3. Jackson Garner scored 18 points to lead Clinton in the scoring column. The Dragons improved to 17-5 and advancecd to the Region semifinals on Tuesday.

REGION QUARTERFINALS—GIRLS FRIDAY

R2AAA: Bearden 76 Clinton 37…The Lady Dragons were able to hang with the top-ranked team in Class AAA in the state on Friday night for about a quarter, then the Bearden Lady Bulldogs showed why they were ranked number one. Bearden pulled away to end Clinton’s season despite 12 points from Belle Starnes and a gritty overall team effort that ultimately came up short against an absolutely loaded Bearden squad. Clinton’s season ends with a 9-15 record, which is not indicative of how competitive they were all season.
