Royals Advance to Second Round of State | HS Sports
Two years ago, BCHS saw their season end in Thomasville at the hands of the Bulldogs. Wednesday, the Royals hosted Thomasville looking to shake off Saturday's region championship game loss.
Up eight after one, the Royal offense had just one basket in the second. But six of ten foul shooting helped keep the lead. Rydealous Taylor scored the first eight of the third as BC went up by double digits. Taylo's bucket broke what had been a 3:45 span without a basket in the fourth, spurring a 15-3 run to end the game as Bleckley advanced to the sweet 16 for the second straigth year 62-45. Foul shooting was 15 of 26.
Mario Beck scored eight of his 22 points in the fourth quarter. Taylor finished with 21. Round two will be Saturday at Westside-Augusta Saurday at 5 pm. The Lady Royals host Dublin Friday at 6 in round two of state.
