    “The positive is that we got off to a good start,” Shelby County Coach Mike Sowers said. “However [46-0]...that simply can’t happen.”

    “We played poised,” Collins Coach Phillip Conder said. “As the lead grew we didn’t panic and start throwing up shots. We did a good job of running our offense and taking good shots.”
