The second game of the 2021 Claiborne County 5-6 grade tournament featured the Owls and Eagles on the boys side of the bracket.

Just when the game was getting started and the teams were scoring an issue with a player for Livesay stopped play. A player entered the game that was not listed in the book.

After a technical foul was called there was much discussion about why and eventually the game resumed.

At the end of the first period the score was 10-4 with the Eagles leading.

The Eagles tried shooting the three ball but it wasn’t falling and the Owls were struggling as well so the score barely moved.
