The Firebirds had a battle Wednesday night against the Elks at Centerville High School. The Elks had the lead going into the half at 21-18. The Birds made some halftime adjustments and won the 3rd quarter 15-4. The Elks took over the 4th quarter and tied the game with seconds remaining. The Firebirds had a great look at the buzzer, but the shot fell short causing the game to go into Overtime.
In Overtime, the game went back and forth. The Birds were up 2 and Centerville had a chance to tie, but missed the final put-back at the buzzer. Fairmont wins a close GWOC contest as they head into their last regular season game.
Fairmont is now 19-2 with 1 game remaining on Saturday. It will be Senior Day as the Firebirds take on Miamisburg at 2:00. Join us in celebrating our seniors and we also have a chance to lock-up the GWOC as co-champions! Saturday we will need a LOUD CROWD!
Great job Firebirds and see you Saturday!
