Canyon Boys Win Another Thriller
Posted By: Mike Roden - 1/25/2020 12:00:00 AM

For the second straight game, the Canyon Eagles won a District 3-4A contest with a last second shot.

Last week, Joe Shaw hit an overtime basket with one second left to beat Levelland. This week it was freshman Kemper Jones hitting a tough shot along the lane at the buzzer to give the Eagles a dramatic 66-64 win at Hereford. 

Stephen Ferguson led Canyon with 20 points, that included going 9 of 10 at the free throw line.  Jones finished with 16 points and the game-winner as the Eagles stay in a first place tie with Estacado at 2-0 in district. Canyon will play at Estacado on Tuesday.

The girls' game was another routine win for the number one-ranked Lady Eagles. Canyon jumped out to a 15-2 lead in the first quarter and coasted to a 51-28 win to move to 24-1 overall and 4-0 in district play.
