Varsity Boys upset Palmetto 59-58! Congratulations to Powdersville Varsity Boys Basketball on their victory over Palmetto at home on Tuesday, February 6, 2018. Patriots led the entire game over Palmetto, the second-best team in the region.
Powdersville was up 33-27 at the half and led by 10 during the final period. Palmetto put forth a noble rally to catch up in the final minutes of the game. With less than 30 seconds remaining, Palmetto stole an inbounds pass and scored to pull within two points. Powdersville beat Palmetto’s press on the next play for an easy layup and a four-point lead with a few seconds left in the game. Palmetto scored a last second three-pointer, but it was not enough to change the outcome. Patriots won by one point! Great way to finish the season!!
Draylan Burton led the Patriots with 22 points while Braylan Boggains and Kavion Morris added 14 each. Powdersville finished the season 5-15 overall and 2-8 in the region. Best wishes to seniors Boggains, Qushawn Brown, Zach Hurst, and Brandon Tutt in their future endeavors! Looking forward to seeing our other Patriots back again next year! #OneTeamOneDream #GoPatriots!
