What looked like a runaway win for Clear Springs early became a fairly close game, as the Chargers held on to beat Seven Lakes at home Tuesday.
Led by nine first-quarter points by Niyah Johnson (13 total points in the game), Clear Springs raced out to a 26-8 lead by the end of the first quarter. The Chargers maintained a solid 38-22 advantage at halftime, but Seven Lakes won the third quarter, 19-10, to get back into the game.
