The Whiteford Bobcats men’s basketball team defeated the Britton Deerfield Patriots 69-57 from the freethrow line Friday evening.

A sharp-shooting team with an accurate three-point shot defeated the Britton Deerfield Patriots 65-48 Jan. 25.

BLISSFIELD — The Blissfield men’s varsity basketball record stands at 3-9 overall and 2-6 in the LCAA following a pair of losses to Erie Mason and Ida last week. The Royals came up short at Erie Mason 52-41 Tuesday, Jan. 22, and 71-53 Friday, Jan. 25 at Ida.

The Blissfield men’s basketball team has continued to go punch-for-punch with the competition this season. Unable to deliver that knockout blow, however, the Royals have lost pace with their opponents, resulting in a 3-11 record on the season and 2-8 in the LCAA. The Royals fell to rival Hudson 59-46 Jan. 29, despite having a halftime lead, followed by a 55-39 Feb. 1 loss to Dundee after trailing by just four points heading into the fourth quarter.
