Lions 38 Wildcats 30, Panthers Tonight at CHS
Coach Shane Hawkins received a solid performance by his Lions squad as they knock off the Anna-Jonesboro Wildcats 38-30 in the first of two SIRR Conference games this weekend.
It was a typical conference battle that you see in every River to River conference matchup, the Lions were able to push the lead to double digits just a couple of times, but maintained a seven or eight point lead most of the night.
The Lions led 12-5 after one, 24-17 at the half and 30-22 at the end of the third quarter.
Senior Eli Downen led the Lions in scoring with sixteen. Playing on a bum ankle Bryce Anderson had five, Taylor Siemer had 3, Jake Hixson added 2. Sophomores Peyton Bittle (2 points) and Caden Hawkins (6 points) got the start for the Lions.
