Sparta Sweeps Field at Trico
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.
