On Saturday morning the Panthers were in Harrison County to face the Scott Eagles, 37th district represenative, while Paris (40th) took on host Harrison County (38th). Augusta and Scott played a tight back and forth 1st quarter with the Panthers holding a slight 12-11 edge. Augusta started to feel it the 2nd quarter as they outscored the Eagles 18-11 to take a 30-22 lead at intermission. The Panthers were dominate in the 3rd quarter dropping 18 points once again to lead 48-32 going into the 4th quarter. Suddenly the road to the finals got a little cloudy. The Panthers got cold, struggling to hit anything and Scott took advantage. The Eagles got to within 3 at 51-48 with only :40 to go but Augusta would close the game out, 57-50. The win made them 9-0. Owens Crawford led the Panthers with 19 points. Connor Maddox had 17 and Camryn Snapp added 10.
Scoring vs. Scott: Crawford 19, Maddox 17, Snapp 10, Spradlin 7, Staggs 4
