TUESDAY BOYS’ REGION SEMIFINALS (ELIMINATION GAMES)
R2AAA: Bearden 67 Clinton 40…The Dragons got off to a slow start offensively and trailed 29-11 at halftime, as the Bulldogs like their female counterparts on Friday, ended Clinton’s season, Elijah Bredwood led 28-3 Bearden with a game-high 25 points, and the home team claimed a spot in the Region championship game. Junior Jackson Garner (who eclipsed the 1500-point mark for his career on Saturday) led Clinton with 16 points, but it was not enough to overcome Bearden. Clinton’s season ended with a record of 17-6 and a second consecutive berth in the Region semifinals, but the Dragons have high hopes moving forward, as they will return everyone from a roster that included no seniors this season next year as they move in to a new District that will include Anderson County, Halls and Scott.
