On Friday night, the Paris Wildcats hosted Pleasant Grove in a matchup of unbeaten district teams. Although the district season is young, this game could go a long way in determining who wins the district title in a couple of weeks.

The game was back and forth early as both teams tried to establish their dominance. After a back and forth first quarter, Paris held on to a slight 16-14 lead. It wasn’t until the second quarter in which they showed their dominance on the defensive side of the ball.

Paris used suffocating defense to turn a two point game into a 15 point game at half time. Jameon Mitchell led the charge as he knocked down three from behind the arc in the second frame.

It all started on the defensive end. We were taking charges. We were playing great defensive. We were forcing turnovers. Of course when we force turnovers, we’ve got to run with the ball and we got some good looks down there.” - Head Coach Billy Mack Steed

Paris used steals and Pleasant Grove miscues to spark their offense. Jaelyn Lee got the crowd going with an alley hoop slam off a pass from Mitchell. Trevon Dennis added another slam and Paris quickly built a 25 point advantage. The Hawks tried climbing back into it, but every time they tried, Paris would extend the lead until the final horn sounded. Paris is now 3-0 in district while Pleasant Grove moves to 1-1.

Pleasant Grove Lady Hawks Too Much for Paris High
