Trojans end Blue Devils’ playoff run

MOOREVILLE — The Water Valley boys’ historic run in the Class 3A MHSAA North Half playoffs came to an end on Thursday night at Mooreville gymnasium.

Cleveland East Side dealt the Blue Devils a 58-36 setback in the program’s first-ever appearance in the quarterfinals of the North Half Tournament.

Water Valley, which advanced to the North Half after 47-38 a road win against Charleston on Tuesday, had been playing their best basketball of the season, and with confidence, lately according to coach John Sherman.

The confidence Water Valley had shown seemed to dwindle around the 3:30 mark in the first period though, after E.J. Bounds hit a jumper to make the score 7-3 in favor of the Blue Devils.
