Unicoi Co. led 17-9 after one, then a great second quarter, where at one
time they outscored Unaka 15-2 to build a 40-18 lead.
It was smooth sailing as Coach John Good was able to get all his
players valuable playing time.
Unicoi Co. only outscored Unaka by three in the second half, 42-39, but
the lead they built in the first half was too much to overcome.
