Tigers: Split­ting the re­gion nets

The Covington News - - Sports -

and fourth place seed­ing in the up­com­ing re­gion tour­na­ment was up for grabs.

The Tigers, who have been a set-of­fen­sive team all year, de­cided to mix it up, us­ing an al­ley-oop pass to Cody Ed­wards that got the at­ten­tion of ev­ery­one. Still try­ing to fight back, they headed to the fourth quar­ter down, 39-36.

The fi­nal pe­riod started with both teams in the bonus, which caused the game to turn into a free throw con­test. But the bet­ter squad on this par­tic­u­lar night would be the Tigers.

Lead­ing the charge was Cla­har, who gath­ered eight of his game-high 23 points in the fourth quar­ter.

Ed­wards fin­ished with 11 points, while Keenan Black had seven.

Juron Dobbs led Her­itage with 14 points and 12 re­bounds. Sha­keem Mitchell added 11 points.

Ear­lier Fri­day, the Lady Tigers took to the court but seem­ingly for­got to bring their game.

Af­ter the Lady Pa­tri­ots (186, 10-3) went on a 19-2 run to end the first quar­ter, things never got bet­ter for Al­covy.

The Lady Tigers — who still fought hard un­til the very end — were un­able to stop the more ag­gres­sive, hot shoot­ing Lady Pa­tri­ots.

Zaneta Gray led Her­itage with a game-high 18 points. Pre­cious Elkins fol­lowed with 15, while Sarah Her­ring­ton chipped in with 12 points.

Al­covy’s Tif­fany Moody had a team-high 10 points. Alex Tucker added nine.
