Playday host Falkville, along with its Morgan County neighbor Danville, went two for two Thursday as this playday featured teams representing Morgan County, Limestone County and Madison County.
James Clemens and Danville wound up being the best of the five assignments, in which both were tied at the half 17-17.
Danville got ahead late in the game and had to hold off a last second shot by James Clemens that missed, preventing the battle from entering overtime.
Decatur Heritage concluded the agenda with a strong second half defensively, allowing Randolph only six points, despite losing two players to ankle and hand injuries.
Danville is entering its second season under J.J. Hill, who directed the Lady Hawks to the Elite Eight last season in Class 4A, falling in the Northwest Regional title game at Wallace State to Deshler.
Falkville, a competitive team for Jonathan Lacy, is eager to move forward in being successful for the new season that will be Lacy's third year in command of the Lady Blue Devils.
