CORDOVA — The Cordova Blue Devils dropped their first home game of the season on Monday night, falling to the Class 6A Muscle Shoals Trojans 48-36 at Cordova.

Mykelti Chatman led Cordova with a double-double performance of 13 points, 10 rebounds and a blocked shot, while Isaac Chatman followed with 10 points and five blocked shots. Kolbi Fuqua contributed nine points and six rebounds.

The Trojans (6-6) took an early lead, 11-8, after the first period.

In the second quarter, Cordova rallied to take a four-point lead following a Mykelti Chatman basket that made the score 19-15. However, Shoals went on a run of its own down the stretch of the second quarter. The Trojans took a 24-21 lead on a 3-pointer in the closing seconds of the half.

Second-ranked Cordova stayed within striking distance in the third quarter, trailing 34-31, but the Trojans sealed the contest with a 14-5 run in the fourth quarter for the 48-36 final.

The Blue Devils (7-4) look to get back in the win column today with a game at Hayden, the No. 6 team in Class 5A. Cordova plays at Curry in a Class 4A, Area 9 game on Friday.
