The Mountain Home High School basketball teams wrapped up their three-game home stand Tuesday by splitting with Greene County Tech. Matt Sharp has the details.
The Lady Bombers began the evening by defeating the Lady Eagles 49-35. Mountain Home dominated Tech in the first half, especially on the defensive end as the Lady Eagles were held to just seven points. The tide turned in the third quarter as the Lady Bombers were outscored 16-10, but they pulled back away and went on to win by 14.
Addison Yates led Mountain Home with 16 points, and Anna Grace Foreman added 10. For Tech, Emma Bates scored 10 points.
The Lady Bombers improve to 18-4 on the season and 7-2 in the 5A-East. The Lady Eagles fall to 4-17 and 1-8.
Mountain Home did not fare as well in the boys’ game as they lost to Tech 41-24. The Bombers came out scoring the first five points of the contest, but there wasn’t much going right after that. The Golden Eagles took over from there as they only committed five turnovers in the game and forced Mountain Home into 17. Tech would build a lead as big as 20 before going on to the 17-point victory.
No one was in double figures for the Bombers. The Golden Eagles were led by Zane Butler with 12 points, Payton Laubach had 11, and Cade Cancilla chipped in 10.
Mountain Home drops to 12-10 overall and 3-6 in the league. Tech is now 18-5 and 5-4.
Friday will be Mountain Home’s first road trip in 2 1/2 weeks as they go to Paragould.
