Pleasant Home had a “heck-of-a” third period in a 66-49 area victory over rival Florala on Friday night.

The Eagles were tied 14-14 with the Wildcats after the first and only led by eight points at halftime.

“We had a heck-of-a third quarter,” PHS coach Jerry Davis said. “We really played well.”

Lance Davis led PHS with 30 points and nine rebounds. Chase Gunter shot 4-for-4 from the perimeter and finished with 14 ponits, and Troy Fantroy had a double-double 10 points and 12 rebounds.

“I was very pleased with the way we played,” Davis said.

In B-team action, the Eagles won 35-30 in overtime.

In girls action, the Lady Eagles went on to rout Florala, 46-27.
