Bruises abounded in a fierce battle during the first of the MEC tournament between Daleville and Eastern Hancock, with the Royals winning the day with a late run. While the game’s margin was never more than 5 for the first three quarters, the Royals turned two turnovers into quick scores midway through the 4th that proved to seal the Broncos’ fate.
“The energy was right, the intensity was great, we just couldn’t capitalize at a couple crucial moments that would have changed the momentum,” the coach was reported to say, slightly dejected on his couch but encouraged by a level of effort and camaraderie that will surely prove important down the stretch. “If they play this well the rest of the season, we’ll stack wins and make a serious run at county.” Well said, Coach. Well said.
