Both games were hotly contested and went into overtime in games originally to be decided by the first team to score 20 points with at least a four-point margin of victory.
TCSO, behind 16 points by Officer Mark Nichols, 14 by Sheriff Ray Burnam and scoring by Officers Ricky Burgess and Mike Ayers, defeated the Middle School All-Stars 36-32. TCSO built a huge lead early in the game, but the Middle School All-Stars, led by Tyson Bush’s 12 points and a balanced scoring attack by Conner Barnes, Graham Futrell, Riley Stallons and Trevor Barnes, came back to knot the game at 20-20.
The game see-sawed back and forth with five more lead changes until Officer Nichols muscled a shot down low between two defenders to end the game. In the second contest of the evening, the TCSO team, aided by the fresh legs of Brian Davis and Micah Gordon, took on a High School All-Stars Team comprised of Jarrod Butler, Colton Phillips, Curtis Faughn, Chris Hendricks, Elliot Boyd and Jaquarius Watkins.
