PGS 7th boys win 1A regional title
Sports Editor

Crawford County has its first regional champion of the basketball season, courtesy of Palestine Grade School's seventh grade boys.

Top-seeded Palestine picked up an 18-13 win over third-seeded Tri-County to claim the Class 1A Regional championship at Palestine Grade School Tuesday night.

It wasn't easy for the Pioneers, as they fell behind 2-0 after the first quarter, before outscoring Tri-County 4-2 in the second quarter to tie the game at 4-4 at halftime. Palestine then blanked Tri-County 5-0 in the third quarter to take a 9-4 lead, then each team scored nine points in the fourth quarter, allowing PGS to hold on for the win.

The Pioneers won the game despite 12-27 free throw shooting, but Tri-County was even worse, as they made just 2-12 foul shots.

Lucas Tingley led PGS with 12 points and one steal, while Ethan Williams posted three points, five rebounds and three steals. Lance Wesner totaled one point, six rebounds, three steals and three blocked shots, Matt Funk netted one point, three rebounds and one steal, Max Illyes collected one point, two rebounds, two steals and two blocked shots and Wyatt Kennedy had one rebound.

Palestine advances to the Stewardson-Strasburg Sectional, where they will play the winner of Thursday night's Stewardson-Strasburg Regional championship game between Dieterich and Stewardson-Strasburg on Wednesday, Jan. 30, at 6 p.m.
