Mavs, Raiders’ season over
By TAYLOR MITCHELL
It’s been a long basketball season for lots of teams across the state. For the Manchester and Benton boys teams the long season has come to a close. The Mavericks fell to Oak Hill 72-44 and Benton lost 46-41 to Humphreys Academy in the first round of their respective district tournaments.
The Raiders came close to advancing to the semi final round on Tuesday night, despite trailing 24-14 at halftime. Benton came out in the third quarter to score 13 points, cutting Humphreys’ deficit to just six points.
Several times in the fourth quarter the Raiders brought themselves to within three points of tying the game, but never could find a way to match Humphreys.
