Etna Green high school's cage quintet, paced by forward Risner, pushed Atwood's highly touted Greyhounds to the limit Wednesday night, Jan. 8, before bowing out in the final chapter, 29 to 23. The Greyhounds, playing cautious ball from the initial quarter, led Etna Green 7 to 3 at the conclusion of the period. The Etna Green sharpshooters rallied during the next period, trailing Atwood 12 to 10 at the half-way mark. Atwood maintained a narrow 21 to 18 advantage at the end of third-quarter play. Etna Green's cagesters couldn't keep pace during the final stanza as their defense wilted before a powerful Atwood drive. Forward Cochran paced Atwood's high scorers with 9 points. Risner had 11 points for Etna Green.
