After falling handedly to the Mayflower Eagles on the road earlier this season (78-48), the Harmony Grove Cardinals fought to the bitter end Tuesday, despite coming up short at home 50-47.
Foul trouble was a concern most of the night for two of the Cardinals main playmakers.
CJ Davis, one of Saline County’s leading scorers, and Cameron Tipton both fouled out of the contest for the second straight game, both of which resulted in losses.
