In the 3rd quarter, both teams were neck and neck as far as scoring goes in the frame. The ‘Nettes outscored Fannin 12-11 in the third to keep their lead going to the 4th, 36-24. The 4th and final quarter would belong to Pickens. They used a combination of tough defense to convert to offense to grow their lead. Using a 17-5 quarter run, the ‘Nettes closed the game out and came away with the win, 53-29.
