KINGSPORT—Johnson County had a tough time putting away Sullivan North 53-47 on Friday night, but the Longhorns persevered and brought a much-needed Three Rivers Conference victory back to Mountain City.
“It’s tough playing two nights in a row,” Johnson County head coach Austin Atwood said. “They played their guts out last night at Elizabethon, so I’ll take any win we can get on the road. Especially when you can do it not playing very well.”
Sullivan North was able to climb within four points with under a minute left, but wasn’t able to overcome an early deficit.
