In their previous meeting, Paris delivered Mansfield a punishing 59 – 38 defeat. While not characterized by quite the same dominating performance, the rematch ultimately ended up the same way. Paris didn’t have too many spare points in its contest with Mansfield, but still walked away with a 19 – 12 win.
Paris’s offense came in ready to rumble, picking up 19 points in the first half. That put it at a 19 – 6 advantage. They coasted on this initial advantage in its totally barren second half.
The defeat brought Mansfield down to 1-3. Paris is now evened up at 2-2.
“Disappointed for our kids with the outcome of this game. I know how bad they wanted it and i think it showed. I think we have shown a lot of growth since this point last year, now we just need to work on getting over the hump. Every week there seems to be one quarter that we just dont execute well on either side of the ball and then we come out the other 3 quarters and play up to the potential that we have. I have to do a better job of putting them in different game like scenarios throughout the week in practice so that they are better prepared when those situations come up on Friday nights. Proud of our effort, intensity and physicality, now we just need to get more consistent. That’s key!!!” – Coach Craig Bentley
