Although the Mansfield Jr High Tigers fell to the Lamar Warriors sword, it wasn’t due to a lack of trying. One thing that a Jr Tiger basketball match isn’t is boring. From epic three-point shots at the end of the first and second quarters to huge blocks and steals, Mansfield was able to keep the lead until the final minute of the match which led to Lamar pulling ahead to take the 32-30 win. The Jr Tigers now sit 1-3 on the season.
Dakota Langford and Tyler Turnipseed secured 10 points apiece while Travis Tobey and Peyton Martin brought in the remaining 10. To get the week started, the Jr Tigers will host Mulberry tonight, December 7 with the Jr Girls starting things off at 4 pm.
