With the subregion title and a No. 1 seed on the line, the Evans High School Knights and Lakeside Panthers battled fiercely Saturday night.
Each team took the other’s best shot, but in the end it was the Knights that prevailed, beating the Panthers 66-57.
The win gave the Knights the Region 2A-AAAAA title for the second consecutive year. The Knights (17-8. 7-2 region) were 9-0 a year ago in the county, but head coach Kevin Kenny was OK with a 7-2 mark in 2014 as they reached their ultimate goal.
