KNOX CITY — The start was great in Friday’s game for Blackwell as the Hornets marched to a score on their first series of Friday’s Class 1A, Division II state semifinal with Motley County.
The joy, however, did not last long.
Blackwell saw its lead go away when Motley County tied the game at 8 on its first series. The next four possessions ended the same way as the Matadors raced to a 48-30 lead at halftime en route to a 56-44 semifinal win.
