New Site used a familiar yet no so simple plan of attack in their semifinal matchup against East Union in the 1-2A tournament.
Shoot the ball about as well as possible and play defense as hard as you can.
It proved to be a recipe for victory as the Royals defeated the Mantachie Mustangs 84-40 on Thursday to set up a rematch against Potts Camp with a district title on the line.
The Royals connected on 15 three pointers in the contest and started the 2nd quarter on a 19-0 run to leave no doubt after they led by just 4 after the first quarter.
New Site is shooting the lights completely out of the gym. They have hit 7 three pointers, 5 from Walker Moreland. Colton and Carson Fitzsimmons have each hit one, including this one from Carson.

New Site was led by Walker Moreland with 25 points while Carson Fitzsimmons put up 24.
New Site and Potts Camp are the consensus top 2 teams in 2A this season. They played an instant classic at New Site earlier this year.
Game time is set for 8:30 on Friday at Walnut.
