Royals Edge East Laurens in 3-AA Semifinals

Royals Edge East Laurens in 3-AA Semifinals

BCHs had a seven-point halftime lead of their region semfinal game versus East Laurens Friday night.  That lead vanished as the Falcons went ahead via a 13-0 run.  Quan Fleming had the Royals only four points as the teams were tied at 30 to begin the fourth.  EL built a five-point lead.  Mario Beck's three-point play with 2:02 left made it 41-40 Bleckley.  Dytrez Nelson's three-point play with 1:27 remaining made it 46-42.  A Falcons jumper with under a minute made it 46-45. 

Four straight Bleckley misses at the foul line gave EL life with five seconds remaining.  A last-second three was short as BCHS hung on for the win.  Beck scored five of his 11 points in the final two minutes.  Marcus Mack had 10 points and five assists.  It will be the first region title game for the Royals since 2007 when they take on Laney Saturday at 8:30 pm.
