Johnson County upended by co-champion Unicoi

By

Mountain City was rockin’ and coach Austin Atwood’s crew nearly played the role of spoiler.

Johnson County pulled within four points late, but a 7-2 run by the Blue Devils in the final minute and a half gave the squad a 48-39 win at Ray Shoun Gymnasium during Friday night’s stretch of Three Rivers Conference action.

The win ultimately gave the Blue Devils (22-5, 10-2) a share of the TRC championship, with Sullivan South, while netting a No. 1 seed in next week’s District 1-AA tournament to be held at Happy Valley High School. The win also guarantees Unicoi County a berth in the following Regional 1-AA tournament.

Lady Devils 68

Lady Longhorns 38

The Lady Devils netted five players in double figure scoring and hit 11 3-pointers throughout the contest to pull away with a much-need win, snapping a three-game losing streak.

Junior Lady Devil Haley Webb led the way with 15 points, drilling in four 3-pointers, while receiving a pair of 12-point performances from fellow junior Chelsey Harness and Morgan Lee Brown.
