It was a rare midweek matinee as BCHS traveled to West Laurens Wednesday afternoon. A bad second half sunk the Lady Royals while the Royals rallied and held off an attempted Raider rally.

Trailing by three at halftime, Nykez Farrow’s buzzer beating three to end the third gave the Royals a 41-36 lead. A nine-point lead was cut to two before Kam Everett hit a three. An Everett free throw and basket pushed the lead to six.

The Raiders got within three with 26 seconds left. BC missed the front end of one if one, giving the Raiders a final shot at tying the game. Though the Raiders got shots at a game-tying three, they were all short as the Royals held on 54-51.
