Despite a late fourth-quarter push, the Hillbillies could not come overcome Bloomfield’s timely buckets, ending in a 54-44 loss.

Bloomfield jumped out to a quick lead, outscoring Verona 14-5 after the first quarter. But in the fourth quarter, the Hillbillies scored 24 points to cut the deficit to six around the two-minute mark. In the last minute, free throws helped Bloomfield extend the lead back to ten by the final buzzer.
