Orion builds big lead, fends off EPC comeback bid
LANARK – The Eastland-Pearl City Wildcatz kept knocking on the door. Trouble was, the Orion Chargers refused to answer.
The Wildcatz staked the Chargers to an 18-point halftime lead, then came roaring back in the third quarter. But 4 points was as close as they got, and Orion held on for a 31-24 victory Saturday in a first-round game in the Class 2A playoffs at Eastland High School.
