On Thursday night the Opelika VG basketball team took on Beauregard and carried the game and took home a win with the score of Opelika 63 to Beauregard’s 15.
In VB Basketball, Opelika and Beauregard went head to head throughout the game. With 3.6 seconds on the clock, Beauregard throws the ball down court to Porterfield, where he hit a 3 pointer at the clock. That gives Coach Johnson his first win as a Beauregard coach by the score of Beauregard 79 Opelika 76. What a game on both sides.
