MAX MEADOWS –– After being hammered by 24 points the last time out on its home floor, one big question about Fort Chiswell was how would the Pioneers respond.
Quite nicely, as it turned out. Now the same must be asked of Galax.
The Maroon Tide saw its 31-game winning streak come to a halt Wednesday night as Fort Chiswell used a strong finish to take a 54-50 win in a Mountain Empire District game. The loss was Galax’s first since a one-point setback to Grayson County on Jan. 25 of last year.
