Hounds fall to Hillcrest in Jonesboro

Wednesday, December 30, 2009

The Salem Greyhounds made things interesting down the stretch in the fourth period, but the Hillcrest Screamin' Eagles still came away with a 51-39 win over the Hounds Dec. 21 in the opening round of the NEA Tournament at the Convocation Center in Jonesboro.

Hillcrest led 17-4 after the first period of play and 35-22 at the half.

The Screamin' Eagles took a 10-point lead, 41-31, into the final frame.

But the Greyhounds fought back to pull within six midway into the fourth.

That wasn't enough and Hillcrest held on for the 51-39 win.

Clint Ray paced Salem with 11 points.

Trevor Morgan scored a game-high 17 points for Hillcrest.
