transition for the home team.


More pressure from Salem - this
time Stephen Barnette will help Turner

easy one as Salem led 10-to-nothing
right out of the gate.


The G-men would get back in the
game as senior J.D. Hunter hit a
variety of shots including this tough
runner off the right side of the lane. *CG final Graham
