Ashland coasts to wins over Byers
The H.W. Byers basketball teams traveled to the neighboring county (Benton) to take on Ashland for rivalry games Friday night.
The Lady Blue Devils cruised past the Lady Lions in a 65-13 final decision.
Byers got the tip, but came up empty. Back-to-back threes from O’Briana Davis and a trey from Kaylen Archibald helped the Lady Blue Devils grab an early lead, 9-5. Byers’ Dallas Fitzpatrick sank a bucket and Briana Murphy hit a three. The Lady Blue Devils poured in some more shots and were up 24-6 as the first expired.
