Maxwell, Pioneers defeat Alexander
ATHENS - In the final game of the evening, Zane Trace defeated Tri Valley Conference's Alexander
62-52 to advance to next week's disrtict title game against undefeated North Adams.
Kirk Maxwell scored a game-high 25 points to lead the Pioneers. Gabe Haynes added 12 points, but
more importantly his defense held the TVC Player of the Year Greg Frost in check. D.J. Merriman
scored 11 points and Rick Chamberlin added nine points.
The Spartans owned the advantage after each of the first three periods with leads of 12-11, 27-23, and
44-43, respectively; however, Maxwell and Haynes exploded in the fourth period to grab the lead and
Alexander outrebounded the Pioneers and the Spartans won the turnover battle, but Zane Trace's
five-of-eight shooting from three-point land in the second half proved to be the difference.
