Hornets Continue Winning Streak After Taming Tigers

The Chillicothe Hornets boys basketball team has now won four games in a row after their win Tuesday night at Macon. The Hornets were leading midway through the 2nd quarter by a score of 19-13 when Chillicothe ended the first half and started the 3rd quarter on a 16-1 run that put Chillicothe up over 20 points. The Tigers had no answer for James Matthew down low, who finished with 19 points and a double double.
