In a nail-biting game, the Blazers (4-2-0) tied the Sherwood Warriors (4-1) 2-2 in Blair's final divisional matchup.
The Blair Blazers (10-5) lost to the Magruder Colonels (5-12) 45-44 in the final seconds of Tuesday's girls basketball game. Blair got off to a great start, earning a 27-8 lead through superior physicality and rebounding in the first half, but numerous turnovers in the second half let the Colonels back into the game.
