Boyd-Buchanan 64, Silverdale Academy 45
CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) -- Hall Allen scored 22 points and Boyd-Buchanan used a big second half to beat Silverdale Academy 64-45 Friday night to stay in a tie for first in District 3-A.
The Bucs (18-7, 4-1 in 3-A) remain knotted with Arts and Sciences atop the standings with two games left in the regular season. The Patriots beat Copper Basin 71-44 Friday night.
Silverdale looked to play the spoiler early, opening up a nine-point first quarter lead. The Seahawks kept pushing the tempo in the second quarter, forcing a variety of Boyd-Buchanan turnovers en route to a 29-20 halftime lead.
The Bucs were a different team in the second half, though, catching fire to outscore Silverdale 44-16 over the final 16 minutes.
Justin McMillan added 17 points for Boyd-Buchanan and Austin Walker chipped in 12.
Ben Strawn led the Seahawks with 14 points, while Spencer Mossburg finished with 11.
Brainerd 71, East Ridge 65 (2 OT)
CHATTANOOGA -- Orlando Moore led three Brainerd players in double figures with 22 points and added 19 rebounds to help the Panthers outlast East Ridge 71-65 in double-overtime Friday night.
The win helps the Panthers keep pace in the District 6-AA race behind first-place Howard. Brainerd (11-10, 9-4 in 6-AA) is now tied in the loss column with both East Hamilton and Tyner, two games behind the Hustlin' Tigers (9-2).
East Hamilton lost at home to Central on Friday night to fall from sole possession of second place, while Tyner beat Hixson to make it a three-way tie.
East Ridge owned a three-point halftime lead and pushed the advantage to nine in the third quarter. Brainerd rallied in the final period to force OT, then needed an extra ten minutes to put the Pioneers away.
Tyree Stubbs and Marques Tipton each added 16 points for Brainerd.
Eddie Hitchcock led East Ridge with 19 points. Kolbe King added 17, J.J. Johnson finished with 12 and Derrick Davidson added ten.
