The Booneville Blue Devils started out well, putting up a quick lead in a battle with another Class 3A contender in Nettleton.

That early advantage proved key as Nettleton made a couple of late charges, but the Blue Devils held on for a 73-60 win on Tuesday night at the Gerald Snider Classic at Northeast.
