The Trimble County Raiders came within two baskets of winning three games in last week’s North American Stainless Classic in Carrollton. The Raiders played the equivalent of 13-1/2 quarters in three contests but fell to defeat in two games by two points in an exhaustive, but determined, effort.
Trimble faced Switzerland County in their opening tournament matchup on Wednesday. The Raiders and Pacers battled to a deadlock after four quarters of play. Switzerland County emerged the victor after the extra three minutes of overtime play, 55-53.
