The Warriors boys claimed a 59-54 win as Davis Ledford and TJ Thomas made all four free throw attempts in the final 10 seconds. 

After a back-and-forth start, the Warriors regained a 17-16 lead in the middle of the second quarter on a Dallas Forsyth 3-pointer and never trailed again. 

Jack Boltja led the way offensively with 23 points. It was the 10th straight region win in the Beverly Athletic Center for the boys, stretching back to 2018.
