NEW MADRID - The New Madrid County Central Eagles fell to 4-9 on the season with a 58-50 loss to Massac County (Ill.) on Saturday at NMCC High School.
The Eagles trailed 35-32 at the half and never could overcome the deficit.
"We played a really good game and we played really hard," said NMCC head coach Scott Kruse.
"We were down by as much as 10 or 12 and kept fighting back. They were pretty good from the free throw line and able to put it away. We were pretty pleased with our week."
NMCC will host Charleston on Tuesday in a SEMO Conference game at 6 p.m.
