Phs Basketball Teams Soar Above The Falcons


The Payson High School basketball teams swept the Alchesay Falcons in crucial 3A East showdowns Friday evening in Wilson Dome.

The boys remained undefeated in the East (9-0) with a 79-45 victory that was fueled by senior guard Levi Neal's 19 first-half points.

Overall, the team upped its record to 19-6.

In girls' action, the Lady Horns rode their height advantage to a 54-33 victory over the Whiteriver team.

"The girls played really well," coach Stacy Anderson said.

With the victory, the Lady Horns improved their East credentials to 6-3 and kept their hopes alive for at least a share of the region championship.

The PHS teams wrap up the regular season today, Saturday, against Snowflake in Wilson Dome. Girls' action tips off at 6 p.m. and the boys take the court at 7:30 p.m.
