Johnson Countys fourth quarter performance resembled a fourth of July fireworks show at Freedom Hall. They exploded for 22 points in the final frame to knock off Happy Valley 57-42 on Monday night inside of Ray Shoun Gymnasium.
The game was tied 35 all heading into the final frame. But a 12-0 run would suddenly put the game out of reach, allowing Johnson Countys freshmen team to run their season record to 8-3.
The Horns took a 13-7 lead after one but Happy Valley battled back to tie the game at 22-22 at the half.
Johnson County built a four-point lead late in the third quarter, but a basket by Nathaniel Henegar and one from Kevin Whitaker tied the game at 35 all heading into the final frame.
Thats when Johnson County caught fire.
A nice hustle play by Gage Hampton allowed Bud Icenhour to score. Dawson Snyder followed with a nice feed to Jordan Edes for a deuce and Nathan Arnold would do the same for Gage Hampton.
Over half their fourth quarter points came off of fast break layups. Johnson County didnt have a turnover in the final frame.
