Wellsville Tigers Improve To 3&1
Tuesday – December 13: The Wellsville Tigers hosted league rival Jackson Milton Tuesday evening in the Tiger's Den. It was “Bug Ball” all night as the men in the white uniforms took off running and didn't slow down until the refs blew the whistle. Wellsville took an early lead in scoring, built it up to a nice margin and didn't stop.
The Blue Jays took the floor with a bit of a swagger to their step. Must have been left over from their football season. That swagger was a bit tarnished by the time they headed back to the bus to go home. The Tigers took a 10 point lead after one quarter, went into the locker room at the half with a 17 point lead and held onto that margin after three. Final score was Wellsville 67-46 and they say the Tigers are in a rebuilding season.
The highlight of the evening had to be Sophomore Nate Scott's game high 32. Scott had six 3-pointers to account for over half of his total. When Scott is “in the zone” his three pointers are deadly and sweet. Most of them touch nothing but net. Next to Scott's hot hand had to Senior Josh Carter taking command on the floor. We saw one Jackson Milton player hit the floor after running into Carter wishing he was wearing football pads. He thought for a moment before picking himself up. The big guy finished the night with 16 rebounds and 6 points.
The Reserves had another nice win in the opening game with a 79-47 victory over the young Jays. It was a good night for the Orange & Black.
The Tigers get back to action tomorrow night, Friday, December 16, at Leetonia. Tip-off for the Reserves against the Teddy Bears is 6 P.M.
Don't let up Tigers...
