Panther's Advance to Regional Semi-Finals

March 11, 2014
Augusta 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.
     The 3rd quarter would be the difference in this one as Augusta's defense would break this one wide open and give the Panthers control.  It didn't help that Robertson County just couldn't stop Brent Bach.  The Panthers finished the 3rd quarter leading 53-41.  In the 4th quarter the Black Devils made a couple runs in hopes of coming all the way back but  they couldn't make it and Augusta finished off the game, 75-62.  The win gave the Panthers their first region win since 1950.  It also gave them 20 wins (20-11) for the second straight season.  Brent Bach led all scorers with 43 points.  He was joined in double figures by Connor Maddox with 17 and Camryn Snapp with 11.  The Panthers would move on to face the Montgomery County Indians in the region semifinals.
Scoring vs. Robertson County:  Bach 43, Maddox 17, Snapp 11, Freeman 2, Crawford 2
