ST. GEORGE –
The Dixie Flyers knew they controlled their own destiny. They knew all they had to do is win their last game and they would, at the very worst, be in a play-in game or be in the playoffs with a Snow Canyon loss.
The Flyers got that win in a big way, 64-46, led by senior Deshon Brown on senior night. Brown scored a career high 22 points in the game, that’s over 12 more points then he averages.
The win helps the Flyers clinch the final playoff spot in Region 9 because Snow Canyon lost. The Flyers will play Judge Memorial at Judge on Saturday, Feb. 18, no game times have been made yet.
The Flyers improve to 7-5 in region play and end the regular season at 11-10 overall. The Flyers will have a week to prepare for their first-round playoff game because they have a bye on Wednesday night.
The Falcons drop to 0-11 in region play and 6-13 overall. The Falcons will have one more chance at a win Wednesday night at 7 p.m. at Hurricane High School.
