Up 23-17 to start the 4th, Meridian kept their momentum, out-scored the Rams down the stretch by three, out-scoring Shelby by 11 points in the 2nd half. However, it left the Hawks three points down at the final buzzer.

When Meridian had their 13-5 run, Miller didn’t score. Wade Johnston and Braydon Vice played key roles in the 3rd, as Johnston hit a trey and Vice a two, giving them five points during a drought in a 3-point win.

In the 4th period, the Rams kept pace and Miller scored another 10 points, 4-of-7 at the line.
