Game #1: Zanesville Blue Devils vs. Maysville Panthers

We had an All-Zanesville matchup as the Blue devils hosted the neighboring Maysville panthers in boys basketball. 

Scoring came in bunches early on for both teams but it’d be Maysville getting on the board first with athree-ball from Raushad Hampton. Great way to start for the road team. 

On the other end…Zanesville looked to Issac Mayle to get them started and he did just that, scoring the first eight points of the game for the Blue Devils including this triple. 

Panthers looking to respond, great move by Alex Bobb to get space and a big time finish with the defender all over him.

Zanesville trading buckets for every Maysville score. This game had plenty of excitement for both teams. 

When the dust settled it would the Maysville Panthers coming out on top over the Zanesville Blue Devils 65-56.
