Things didn’t go quite as planned for the Mansfield Tigers. “When you hear the term “Ice Cold” that is the true description of our game Thursday night,” said Head Boys Coach, Keith Dake. “It’s hard to win games while shooting 38% from the field, 15% from the 3pt line, and committing 20+ turnovers.” The Tigers and Lady Tigers struggled as a whole last night but they will keep putting in the hard work at practice and continue to fight.

Coach Dake had this to say about his team, “The bottom line is that we have got to be able to knock down open shots. We had plenty of opportunities last night and got wide open looks but we just failed to finish. We will look to rebound from this loss Thursday, December 27th, when we face off against Mulberry in the first round of the Bill Frye Christmas Classic. Girls will tip off at 6 pm and boys at 7:30.”
