The Greenwood’s girls basketball team watched as its 21-point halftime lead nearly evaporated in the second half. Deauna Evans, the Woodmen’s best player in the first half, sat on the bench with a sprained ankle.
By all outward appearances, the Woodmen’s bid for sole possession of the Mid-State Conference championship was slipping away.
The Woodmen have played in so many close games over the past two seasons, Friday’s situation against visiting Decatur Central was a familiar one. They handled it the same way they have so many other tight contests.
