Cosby tops James River, gives Bird Dominion title

Posted: Updated:
MIDLOTHIAN, VA (WWBT) -

The Dominion District regular season championship all depended on how things played out at James River Friday night between the Rapids and Cosby.  The host Rapids could claim the championship with a victory, but Cosby had other ideas.

The Titans used a 15-4 third quarter run to open up a lead that proved insurmountable, as Cosby topped James River, 61-49.  With the victory, L.C. Bird earns the district's top spot, the Titans finish second, while the Rapids will be the third seed in next week's district tournament.

Gus Rowland paced Cosby with 21 points, while Cincinnati commit Troy Caupain scored 16 points and pulled down 14 rebounds in the victory. 

The win gives Cosby the season sweep of James River.  The Titans topped the Rapids earlier this season, 52-49, on their home floor.
