WEBBERS FALLS 54, STUART 41 — In Class A Area IV action, Webbers Falls chunked the turnovers and when it did, the Warriors scorched Stuart on a 21-3 fourth-quarter assault at home to win a district championship for the first time in recent memory.
Jordan Sharp had 10 of his game-high 24 points in the final quarter after Stuart had led by as many as 15 points. Jup Carter had 15 points and Hunter Walker 10. Webbers will carry a 10-13 record into a regional semifinal later this week.
“We talked about it and no one’s for sure when we’ve done this,” WFHS coach Colby Wade said. “Turnovers ate us up but we started making defensive stops and taking care of the ball instead of throwing it away.”
