A fast start against Ira Friday night helped push Throckmorton to the regional finals.

The Greyhounds got out of the gates fast agaisnt the Bulldogs thanks in part to baskets by Gary Farquhar. One of them would get Throckmorton on the board first, and a short time later he would help stretch the lead to six.

Then Treys Leal found Levi Taylor in the post for another basket, and the Greyhounds would jump out to a 8-0 lead.

Ira would mount a comeback thanks to a few baskets by Logan and Lance Morris. The Bulldogs would trim the Throckmorton lead to one in the first quarter, but the Greyhounds would hold on for a 52-45 victory.

They'll take on Water Valley at 2 p.m. Saturday afternoon for the regional title at Moody Coliseum.
