The Nolensville Knights are pushing forth for another region title.
The team edged Creek Wood 60-48 Monday night at home in the Region 6-AA Quarterfinals to stay alive this postseason.
Nathan Foutch (20), Reese Gilbert (13) and Nate Bloedorn (11) paced the Knights in scoring.
The game was close for most of its duration (the Knights were down a point, 7-6, after one and only led 25-23 at the break), but got a 34-29 lead after three and stamped the trip to East Hickman High School in the fourth.
The team now awaits for Camden at East Hickman’s tourney site for the semifinal round. Tip-off is Wednesday night at 6:00 p.m.
A win in that game will guarantee a Knights sub-state berth for the weekend.
Nolensville rival Marshall Co. might be who awaits them if they advance Wednesday in Friday’s region finals.
