Larry Stanford/The Thomaston Times
The Upson-Lee Knights struggled with turnovers in the first half of the game, falling behind 31-16 at halftime. However, a huge third quarter rally cut the Raiders lead to 31-29 in the third quarter. Unfortunately the Knights were unable to keep the rally going, falling to Riverdale by a 52-38 score. Above, UL’s Malik Crafter gets fouled on a drive to the basket in the Knights loss on Friday night. The Knights (9-15) will now turn their attention the the Dutchtown Bulldogs (6-18), as they face them tonight in the first round of the Region 4 Tournament at Jonesboro High School at 8:30 p.m. If they Knights can get past the Bulldogs, they will face Riverdale once again on Wednesday night at Griffin High School at 8:30 p.m., with the winner receiving a berth to the State Playoffs.
