HANOVERTON, OH – When the Lisbon Blue Devils entered United’s gym on Friday night, one think was on their minds, revenge. United went into Lisbon on January 31st and caught them off guard, winning 67-52. This time however, the Blue Devils took a stand on United’s home floor and won 46-45.
The first quarter saw Lisbon’s shooters take over en route to four quick three pointers. By halftime, the Blue Devils were in control 31-16. The second half however saw the Golden Eagles chip away consistently, ultimately taking a one point lead late in the fourth quarter, 45-44. At that point, Lisbon’s Ryan McCullough took the ball the length of the floor and hit a floater just over the out stretched hand of the United defender with just under 10 seconds remaining. United then had an opportunity at the buzzer as Keaton Baker’s three point attempt fell just short.
The United Golden Eagles were led by Nate Miller with 14 points and Keaton Baker with 9 points.
