Bishop England and head coach Bryan Grevey knocked off Woodland Tuesday to stay tied with Garrett for third place in Region VI. BE FLICKR

Bishop England knocked off Woodland, 46-36, on the road Tuesday to keep pace with Garrett in Region VI headed into the regular season finale.

Bishop England (11-12, 7-6) was scheduled to close its regular season schedule Thursday at home against Ridgeland. The weather forced the two to postpone the game until Friday, possibly Saturday.

The Bishops sit tied with Garrett (13-8, 7-6) with one game left to play for both teams. The two split the season series in region play. If they remain tied for third place after their final game, Bishop England and Garrett will faceoff in what would be considered an early playoff game to determine the No. 3 seed in Region VI.

If Bishop England loses their final game against Ridgeland, it could potentially fall into a similar tie-breaking scenario with Academic Magnet or Burke for the No. 4 seed.

“We control our own destiny, so to speak,” Bishop England head coach Bryan Grevey said. “That's the position you want to be in, especially at this point in the season.”

To be able to control their own destiny, the Bishops had to get past Woodland Tuesday in the final game of a five-game road stand.

Trailing by three after the first quarter, the Bishops allowed Woodland just one field goal in the second quarter. Griffin Herbert scored six and B.J. Grevey added four to help Bishop England take a 10-point lead into halftime.

Dexter Walker scored all eight points for Woodland in the third quarter, while the Bishops stretched their advantage to 13 with four players scoring at least two points. Grevey helped Bishop England seal the win with another five in the fourth quarter, and finished with a game-high 17. Dillion Corbett added seven, and Robert Bulter and Herbert both scored six for the Bishops.

Walker led Woodland with 10 points, Marquez Kelley and Hasanti Allen both added nine.

With the win, the Bishops finish their recent region road tour 2-3, still very much alive in the middle of Region VI with first-place Ridgeland waiting in the coming days.
