Boys basketball: Paulding holds on to defeat Ayersville

By KEVIN EIS cnsports@crescent-news.com Published:

Paulding managed to up its win streak to three on Saturday evening, capping off a weekend of survival for the Panthers. One night after sealing a dicey 47-44 Northwest Conference win over Crestview, some key fourth-quarter plays and free throws paid off big, as the Panthers held off an Ayersville squad which was not about to lie down for a 53-47 non-league victory in Panther Country.
