Hebron Eagles 63, Immanuel Rams 66
BENTON â€“ The Immanuel Christian Rams weathered a first-half storm to outpace the Hebron Christian Eagles in the second half (40-26) and claim a narrow, 66-63 win Friday night in the MAIS Class-A North-Central tournament at Benton Academy.
â€śWe came out tonight with intensity, but we werenâ€™t doing the little things,â€ť Immanuel Head Coach Greg Watkins said. â€śWe wanted this one real bad. We knew how good Hebron was, and I think that gave us some jitters. After halftime, we came out with a better focus.â€ť
