The West Gadsden Panthers won their district last week, and as a result will be hosting Sneads High School on Feb. 21. The Panthers capped off their regular season by winning a thriller in overtime against rival East Gadsden.
The East Gadsden Jaguars came up short in their quest to become district champs as they lost in a heartbreaking game against Florida High. At one point in the game, the Jaguars held a seven point advantage, but costly turnovers and a last minute tip-in sealed East Gadsden’s fate as they lost by a score of 45-43. The Jaguars will also be a part of the regional play-offs.
