Staff report

Paducah Tilghman's Austin Mayes was fouled trying to score off an offensive rebound as the final horn sounded and the Tornado trailing Ballard Memorial 55-54 Friday night. Mayes sank both free throws and Tilghman escaped the upset-minded Bombers with a 56-55 victory at Otis Dinning Gymnasium.

The Tornado trailed early, 4-3, but dominated the rest of the first half to take a 31-21 lead into intermission.

Ballard Memorial chipped into the lead and managed to tie the game at 50, then took its first lead of the second half at 55-54 late in the game on Dre Bledsoe's 3-point shot.

Mayes led a balanced Tilghman scoring attack with 10 points; Devon Hart, Andre Strayhorn and Sayveon McEwen each scored nine.
