Xytlaly (Collie) Bautista lit up from outside for three 3-pointers in the game. She also had a field goal late in the game for a total of 11 points The Fillies had a total of 7 from downtown.

In the boys game, Sutton dominated most of the game-winning the  game 68-50. The Mustangs were led by senior Jacob Haight who poured in 19. Haight was 7-9 from the line and tossed one in from downtown. Colton Haight poured in 11 points off the bench including a 3-pointer of his own.

At the end of the first quarter, the Cougars trailed only 15-11. They actually tied up the score in the second quarter 19 all before Sutton regained the lead and never looked back from there.

 The Mustangs defense proved to be too much for the Cougars to handle, as Cross County only scored 13 the entire second half compared to Sutton’s 32 points. The second half Mustang surge was in large part to  Quenton Jones who knocked in 12 of his 15 points after the break.
