For the first time since the two schools were region foes in 2005-06, Bleckley and West Laurens met in basketball action Saturday at the Raiders SaddleDome. It was a story of comebacks as one team from each school rallied to win.
N'yaia Anderson's 14th point of the first half with three seconds left gave the Lady Royals a 35-18 halftime lead. Four Lady Raider three-point shots helpd cut the deficit to five going to the fourth. WL went ahead with 53 seconds left. One of two Bleckley free throws with eight seconds left cut a two-point deficit to one. A quick foul, then one of two free throws again mad it a two-point game. BC's last second shot was short as they lost 66-64.
Anderson finished with 17. Dewanda Blackshear had 11. Cam Tillman scored 10.
