Tigers Dream Of District Upset Turned Into Nightmare By 22-0 Run By Canton

The dream ending would have seen Scotland County upset top seed Canton on their way to the district title and the Tigers looked poised to make the fantasy a reality early on.

SCR-I looked like it should have been the #1 team in the bracket in the first period. After falling behind 10-3 Scotland County came roaring back. Chase Moore hit back-to-back three pointers to pull with in one point. Clint Cottrell scored in the paint on a nice pass from Aaron Dale to put Scotland County ahead for the first time.

The Tigers continued to ride the momentum as Dale scored in the post. Jake Fogle nailed a three pointer at the buzzer to end the first period on a high as Scotland County led 16-12.

Dale kept the team on top by four points as he scored a pair of buckets in the paint to make the score 20-16.

Unfortunately from that point on the dream turned into a nightmare. Canton went on a 22-0 run over the next six minutes of the second period to end any hopes of a Scotland County upset.

Moore hit a three pointer with 38 seconds left in the first half to stop the Canton scoring streak but the Tigers still trailed 38-23 at the break.

The second half was academic after the big Canton rally. The two teams traded buckets back and forth with Canton getting the edge as the lead swelled to 56-31 after the third quarter.

Cottrell had a pair of scores to open the fourth period but with a 20-point deficit Scotland County turned the game over to its four seniors in their final basketball game for SCR-I. Jake Fogle put up a couple scores and Michael Lodewegen finished off the scoring with a bucket in the paint on a nice assist from fellow senior Andy Boyer.

Senior Chase Moore closed out his career at SCR-I by leading the Tigers in scoring with 14 points. Dale added eight points and Fogle finished with seven.

Scotland County finished up the season with an 8-18 mark.
