WINNSBORO — The Fairfield Central boys’ basketball team fell to the Keenan Raiders Saturday night by a score of 82-77.
Despite losing their first game in just over three weeks, which was also to Keenan on Jan. 17, Griffin head coach Devin Liferidge was pleased with his team’s valiant effort.
“We had some things that didn’t go our way, but I still felt like the effort was there and the kids played hard,” he stated after the game. “Our goal doesn’t change and I still feel like we’re a state championship contending team.”
There were six lead changes in the first quarter, but after the first eight minutes of play Keenan took a 10-15 advantage and would never relinquish the lead.
Fairfield’s Keith Workman scored a team-high 27 points in the losing effort. The Griffins will wrap up the regular season on Tuesday (Feb. 11), when they host North Central for Senior Night.
