    After a slow start to the game, the Oliver Springs Middle Lady Bobcats beat Rockwood, 34-8, Thursday evening at the Rockwood Middle School Gym.

    Savannah Ray finally broke the stalemate with a hard-fought two points over the Rockwood defense.

  • ‘Cats and Tigers go to the wire

    The Rockwood Middle School boys edged Oliver Springs Thursday night, 51-49, thanks to a last second acrobatic shot Thursday evening at Rockwood Middle Gym.

    “We can’t put ourselves in that kind of situation,” Bobcat Coach Lance Jones said.

    “We’re not a very experienced team and we didn’t handle the press very well. We let them hang around when they shouldn’t have.

    “We’ll get back in the gym tomorrow and we’ll fix it.”
