    For three quarters, Harrison County executed their game-plan to near perfection and had an unlikely 35-31 lead over highly-regarded Clark County.

    The fourth quarter was a different story altogether, however. The Cardinals played flawlessly down the stretch, converted their free throws and outscored the Fillies 32-12 for a deceptive 63-47 win.
