It was a slow start in last nights Sr High boys game against the Lincoln Wolves. Struggling to score in the first half, the Tigers finally began to find their rhythm and won the game 60-55. This puts the Tigers at 3-4 in season play and 1-1 in conference play. The Tigers remarkably put up nearly 20 points just out of forced turnovers. Working in the boys’ favor last night was their rebounding and free throw shooting late in the game. Head Coach Keith Dake said, “We shot over 70% from the free throw line which ultimately ended up sealing our victory.” Junior Guard Ethan Stovall led the team with 27 points and Layton Howard brought in 16 points. Finishing the game with over 6 rebounds each was Ethan Stovall, Cody Chick, and Tyler Holmes.
The Lady Tigers ran into a few small bumps which ultimately led to them falling to the Lady Wolves 53-24. Last nights game, brought the Lady Tigers to 2-5 in season play and 0-2 in conference play. This girl gang of Tigers played hard all night using leadership and aggression. The Lady Tigers are definitely not afraid of a little pain. Contributing to the final score was, Amber Elmore, Makayla Strutton, Rylea Weaver, Maggie Strunk, Hailey Walker, and Mikayla Harrison.
The Mansfield Tigers are back in action when they head south to take on the Waldron Bulldogs on Friday, December 14th at 4:30 pm.
