DOVER — History repeated itself as the Southmont Mounties dropped a 54-34 decision to Western Boone in the first game of a boy-girl doubleheader Friday night.
As was the case in the championship game of the Sugar Creek Classic last month a bad third quarter was the difference in the game.
Southmont had erased a big first-quarter deficit and managed to get within striking distance at halftime trailing just 18-15 after trailing by double digits earlier in the half.
That would not happen as western Boone blitzed the Mounties (6-6, 1-4) by a tune of 24-7 to break the game wide open and send the Stars to their 21st straight win over the Mounties.
In the third quarter, it was 12 turnovers and a balanced attack that led the Stars (4-6).
