With evidence of last week’s ice/snow storm lining the roadside, the Hayesville Yellow Jackets loaded up and headed to Nantahala to face the Hawks.
The Jackets entered the match-up favored to win and didn’t disappoint, coming away with a 74-54 victory.
Hayesville shooters got the hot hand from the opening tip-off. The Jackets put up 32 points in the opening quarter, led by Josh Cottrell who had 16 in the opening stanza. Scoring settled down for Hayesville in the second quarter but the Jackets still managed double digits with 17 before the half.
