Panther's Advance to Regional Semi-Finals
March 11, 2014Augusta Independent Schools
The Augusta Panthers post-season run continued on Friday night at the Mason County Fieldhouse vs. the 38th district runner-up, the Robertson County Black Devils. The two teams had played two fairly close games in the regular season so this one was expected to be close. Augusta came out like a ball of fire with alternating three pointers from Connor Maddox and Brent Bach and they led 12-4. But it would take more than that to phase the Black Devils as they made a run of their own, 13-2, to close out the quarter and lead, 17-14. In the 2nd quarter Augusta would regain the lead but couldn't shake Robertson County. The Panthers hoped to have the lead at the half but a Dawson Cooper runner in the lane just before the buzzer tied the game at 30 all.
