Dragons Win Third Straight As They Tame The Bobcats

Dragon's Corner, Featured Stories, Team FYN Sports

The Dragons varsity basketball team hosted the Bobcats of Gilmer in the Dragons Den for a region 7AAAA battle. Pickens, coming off of an incredible comeback against Heritage on Tuesday, looked to keep the momentum going against their rivals to the north. Dragon Nation would have a lot to cheer about Friday evening.

The first quarter opened in a similar way as the girls game with both teams searching for consistency. The Dragons got out front to end the quarter with the 15-9 lead. Pickens would use a combination of both sides of the ball to outscore Gilmer in the second quarter, 23-15 to take a 38-24 lead into the locker room. Coming out for the third quarter, the Dragons were able to maintain the lead after outscoring the Bobcats 19-12 to hold a 57-36 advantage going to the fourth. Gilmer made a mini run in the final quarter of the ball game outscoring Pickens, 18-11, but the Dragons closed it out and got the win, 68-54.

The Dragons are now 6-2 on the season and 2-1 in region play

Leading the way for Pickens last night would be:

Shannon Brooks: 27 points, 5 rebounds, and 4 steals

Holden Roop: 15 points, 1 assist, 1 rebound, and 3 steals

Trent Rizoti: 13 points, and 7 rebounds

Clay Wigington: 9 points, 1 assist, 6 rebounds, 3 steals, and 3 blocks
