Senior guard TJ Wilson was the spark Guthrie needed after scoring just 30 points the day before. Wilson drill three 3-pointers in the first quarter and added three more in the game. He finished with a game high 20 points and was named the Legend’s Legend of the Game.

The Jays built up a 25-20 halftime lead and opened the game with a 23-7 run in the first 13 minutes of the second half.

Guthrie was without junior L’liott Curry, who sat out with an injury.

Edgar Baez scored double digits with 11 points while Bailey Nichols chipped in with 10.

Del City holds off Guthrie in first round of Mid-Del tourney

Guthrie outscored Del City on the Eagles home floor in three of the four quarters in the first round of the Mid-Del Holiday Tournament, but the second quarter margin of points was enough for the Eagles to keep their distance.

The BlueJays jumped out to a 6-0 lead in the first three minutes, but Del City finished the next five minutes with an 11-6 advantage to pull within 1-point, 12-11, after the first quarter.

Del City (4-2) picked up their first lead, 19-18, of the day at the 4:08 mark of the second quarter thanks to an 8-2 run in a span of 2:22. Eventually, the Eagles put up 19 points in the second quarter compared to Guthrie’s eight points.

A big part of the game came in the fourth quarter when senior guard TJ Wilson drilled a 3-point shot to pull Guthrie within four points, but on the other end Del City hit a 3-point shot of their own to go with a foul under the basket. The Eagles then hit a field goal off the inbound play to take it from a four point game to a 9 point game in a matter of seconds.

However, Guthrie was able to tie the game back up at 49-all with two minutes to play in the game.

Guthrie (1-2) was led by seniors Edgar Baez and Bailey Nichols with 14 points. Adding in double-digit scoring was junior L’liott Curry with 12.

The Jays were impressive from the free throw line by hitting 12-of-13, including a perfect 10-10 in the second half.

The Jays will now turn around and play Heritage, AR at 3:30 on the consolation side of the bracket on Friday afternoon.
