The Phoenix came out and got a gutsy win, 47-44, in a tight game from start to finish at home against LFO.

Sonoraville (4-19, 3-9) trailed 37-33 early in the fourth quarter, but made several key plays and outscored LFO 14-7 from that point on to get the win.

"This was a huge win for a lot of reasons," said Sonoraville coach Brent Mashburn. "I wasn’t really sure what to expect with us not being in the gym in almost a week because of the storm and everything, but I couldn’t be more proud of these guys. They came out and played their butts off and did everything they could for 32 minutes to win this game.

"It’s good to see hard work paying off, and it also gives us a chance to improve our seeding for the region tournament."

Alex Cheeks had a big night for the Phoenix with 16 points, including six of those in the crucial fourth quarter. Chris Baker added 11, and Jackson Murray had seven, including two free throws that pushed the lead to three with under 20 seconds left.

The game was tight throughout with neither team holding a lead of more than six points at any time.
