Calhoun City Wildcats advance with overtime victory

Calhoun City's Wildcats saw a 13-point halftime lead evaporate in the final period of their game against Eupora Tuesday night in the opening round of the Region 2-2A tournament at East Webster.

The Eagles rallied to force the final game of the night into overtime. There the Wildcats managed to extend their season at least another week by pulling out a 71-65 victory. The win means the Wildcats will advance to the region semifinals where they will face tournament host East Webster Thursday at 5:30 p.m. It also guarantees them a place in the North playoffs next Tuesday. The outcome of Thursday's game will determine whether that's at home or on the road.
