A pair of Ozark 7 teams pulled upsets to stay alive in district play on Tuesday.

The Purdy Eagles squeezed Greenfield with commanding play in the second and third quarters to take a 68-49 victory in Class 2 District 10 boys action at Sarcoxie. Landon Terry led the Eagles with 26 points, with ample support from Devon Bennett with 13 and Cody Hall with 9.
Greenfield's Jordan Bryant and Jason Anderson reached double figures with 20 and 16 points respectively.
After a close opening period that favored Purdy 15-12, the Eagles rolled through the second quarter to take a 37-25 halftime lead and then added 8 points to the lead in the third.
After upsetting third-seeded Greenfield, Purdy advances to play second-seeded Marionville at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday.
The Wheaton Bulldogs toppled Jasper 63-43 in a five-seed vs. four-seed match-up and will play against top-seeded Miller in the 6 p.m. game on Thursday. Miller won a tighter than expected game with Sarcoxie, 51-42, in the matinee game on Tuesday.
