DRAFFENVILLE -- The Falcons of Hickman County struck first at the home of the CFS Eagles last Tuesday, but their effort was cut down with three quick baskets by Mickey Bivin, Ari Phillips, and Andrew Allen. Hickman County drew a foul, making good on one of the shots, but Phillips was back with his second basket for the 8-3 lead midway through the first quarter.

Allen opened the threes up to take a six-point lead over Hickman County. Bivin took the second three to pull ahead by 11. Isaac Hovekamp added two from the line, and the Eagles were ahead by 13 before the first buzzer. The Eagles played a consistent offensive and defensive game, never allowing the Falcons any closer than 10 points. CFS allowed Hickman County 24 points in the final quarter, still taking the win 77-60.
