Tuesday's Holiday Tournament Recap includes tough days for local teams in Missouri and the smaller school defeating the bigger school in a Boone County match-up at the Lendel Thomas Classic.
In Harrison, the host Goblins lost a close one to Bergman, as the Panthers notched their 18th win of the season with the 79-71 win. With Springfield Hillcrest's 76-24 win over Earle, that sets the stage for a possible three-way tie in the round robin event.
This afternoon's final games will feature Bergman taking on Earle at Noon followed by Harrison playing Hillcrest at 2:00. A Hillcrest win would give them a perfect 3-0 mark while a Harrison win over the Hornets along with a Bergman win in their game would leave all three teams with 3-1 marks.
