Sparta Sweeps Field at Trico


By WSIL Sports

CAMPBELL HILL -- The Sparta Bulldogs wrapped up a perfect Pioneer Invitational with a 57-54 win over Chester Wednesday night.

The Yellow Jackets tried to spoil the Bulldogs' run at 5-0 in the tourney, building a five point lead at halftime.  Sparta used a 12-3 third quarter run to take the lead.  The Bulldogs extended that lead to nine in the fourth, before Chester rallied.

The Jackets cut it to three and had a chance to tie, but Jake Lochhead's potential game-tying three at the buzzer came up short.

Also Wednesday, Steeleville beat Shawnee 69-49, and Trico downed Red Bud 54-44.
