Yesterday, The Dragons finally returned to the Dragons Den to play a true home game for the first time since November 18th to host the Spartans of West Hall in non region action.

The Dragons would outscore the Spartans in the 2nd quarter 14-13, but still trailed West Hall at halftime 26-25. Pickens came out in the 2nd half and executed both offensively and defensively to outscore West Hall 22-7 to secure a 48-32 lead headed to the 4th and final quarter. The Dragons would seal the win as they outscored the Spartans 28-26 to grab the win 76-58 to move their record to 4-2 on the season.
