In a Saturday night game the West Gadsden Panthers got by a tough Rickards boys’ basketball team 68-61.
“It was the best game we played this year,” West Gadsden coach Andrew Moten said. “It was a win we really needed, and it was a game in which I felt all the team played well at one time.”
A large crowd saw four players score in twin figures for the Panthers. Leading those scorers was Arlist Kenon with 14 points. Archie Albritton added 13, Devonte Gibson 12, and Marquis Brown 10. Brown also had his bulk felt with 10 rebounds.
