In a hard played game, Opelika fell short in the last seconds of the game. With 11 seconds on the clock with Opelika trailing 63 to 66 against Eufaula, Jayden Cooper got the ball and pulled up and hit a 3 pointer. Eufaula ran down the court and throw the ball up from the right side over 3 Opelika defenders. The ball bounced around the goal and fell in with “0” on the clock giving Eufaula the win.
Opelika’s Senior Basketball player, Kaitlyn Bryant #12, scored her 1,000th point during the Opelika High – Eufaula High game on 1/12/21. Congratulations Kaitlyn!
