Bayless Boys Avenge Loss to Brentwood

The Bronchos took care of the Eagles on the Brentwood court.

Bayless boys basketball lost to Brentwood at home last year, and came to the Eagles' home court on Friday with a plan to even the score. They did it convincingly.

“They beat us by one point at our place,” Bayless’ Munir Hirkic told STLtoday.com. “So we had a bit of a chip on our shoulder and we came out ready to play.”
