Philip Scotties defeat Lemmon Cowboys 55-51

The Scottie boys' basketball team came home from Lemmon with a 55-51 victory over the Cowboys.

Despite their opponent's home court advantage, the Philip players held their own. Philip ended the first quarter with a one basket advantage. The two teams were so evenly matched that when the halftime buzzer sounded the score was tied 24-24.

The third quarter ended with a one basket deficit for the Scotties. The final quarter is where Philip took advantage of several turnovers to pull ahead. Not only was the score soon tied, but the Scotties began pulling ahead to eventually win by four points. The final score was 55-51.

Lemmon's head boys' basketball coach, Josh Anderson, said, "We played hard and they made some huge shots down the stretch. They are a big team and we gave up a few too many offensive rebounds against them. Overall it was a fun game to be a part of."
