The Sneads Pirates and the Malone Tigers traveled to Altha last week to participate in a preseason classic that pitted the two county teams against each other.  When all was said and done, it was Sneads with the narrow 60-57 over the Malone Tigers.

Both teams battled to an 8-7 finish in the first quarter with Malone taking the edge.  Spencer Floyd nailed a three, with Odarius Murff picking up two from the line and Deontre Decree picking up a basket.  Ocasio Murff added the final points to give Malone the edge.  For Sneads, it was Courtavious Garrett leaving the football cleats behind for the court and hitting from downtown, while D3 Darbyshire and Quan Daniels both had one bucket each. 

Both offenses stepped it up in the second quarter with Sneads coming out on top 24-20, with six Pirates posting points, led by Quan Daniels with eight points, followed by Chase Harrell with five points.  Malone was led by Quinton Groomes with 11 points, nine of those coming from three-point range, Ocasio Murff knocking down six points.    At the half, it was a slim 31-28 lead. 

Sneads went up by two in the third quarter 19-17 with Taylor Brown for Malone posting eight points, two from three-point range and Quinton Groomes posting a three.  For Sneads, it was Jalen Johnson with five points, followed by Courtavious Garrett with three.  

The final quarter went to Malone, 13-11 but they were just a few points shy of a comeback.  Odarius Murff did his share, putting up two buckets and one from the line, followed by a downtown shot and one from the line for Joshua Rivers.  Sneads was led in the fourth quarter by Jaquan Daniels with six points, four of those coming from the line.  

Leading the Tigers on the night was by Quinton Groomes who had 14 points, including four threes on the night, followed by Taylor Brown with nine points.  Ocasio Murff had eight points, with Colby Harrell posting seven, and Joshua Rivers coming up with six.  On board with five points was Elijah Larry, followed by Spencer Floyd and Jarod Southwell each with a three-pointer, and Demontrae Decree with two points.

Sneads was led in scoring by Quan Daniels with 16 points, followed by Courtavious Garrett and Chase Harrell with eight points each.   D3 Darbyshire, Deashun Hilliard, and River Clark all posted six points, with Jalen Johnson with four points.  Varell White, Jay Nathan Hayes, and Xzavier White all posted two points each.

Sneads was scheduled to open at home Tuesday against Crossroad Academy before hosting cross-county rival Graceville tonight (Thursday).  Game time is at 5:30 for junior varsity and 7 p.m. for varsity.
