Elysian Fields TX- After dropping three of four games last week at the Glen Evans Tournament in Troup, Beckville was able to get a big win over the Elysian Fields Yellow Jackets. Stephen Darden has led the Bearcats all season and tonight was no different. Darden would knock down 26 points, 15 of those coming from beyond the arc.
In a game that was tightly contested Beckville managed to go into halftime up 34-31. The Bearcats would take a 47-41 lead into the 4th period. Coach Andre Jones attributed the 4th quarter knock-out blow to a tough full court press that Elysian Fields had no answer for.
The Bearcats put up 21 points in the 4th period most of these points were scored off of turnovers created by the Beckville defense.
Trey Lindsey had 9 points while CJ Robinson, Taylor Hightower, and Brandt Harris all chipped in to give the Bearcats a 2-0 start to district play. Beckville will return to action Friday at Home, when they will host the Ore City Rebels.
