Tigers Start Conference Play With Victory Over Indians

A key 14-2 run to start the third period was more than enough to send Scotland County to a 64-48 win over Clark County in the Tigers opener of the Tri-Rivers Conference schedule February 3 in Kahoka.

SCR-I fell behind 6-0 to open the contest but rallied behind a strong first period from Aaron Dale to take a 15-10 lead after eight minutes of play. The senior forward scored eight points during the opening frame.

The Tigers turned to the three-point line for offense in the second quarter. Cody Holt drilled a triple to open the period. Danny Roach then nailed a couple of long shots to help the Tigers hold onto a 29-24 advantage at halftime.

Scotland County put the game away with a 14-2 run to open the third period. Holt started the run with a three pointer. Roach followed that up with a conventional three-point play. After a basket in the paint by Clint Cottrell, Roach made a steal on defense and took the ball in for two points to make the score 39-26. Baskets by Greg Neagle and Cottrell gave SCR-I its biggest lead of the game at 43-26, forcing a Clark County timeout.

The Indians rallied to trim the deficit to 43-34 before Dale scored five unanswered points. A tip in at the buzzer by Neagle made the score 50-33 heading into the final quarter.

Clark County pulled to within 10 points in the fourth quarter but Dale finished the Indians off with 10 of his game-high 23 points down the stretch to secure the 64-48 win.

The Tigers had a balanced scoring attack led by Dale. Cottrell and Roach each added 13 points. Neagle finished with nine points and Holt added eight.

The Tigers improved to 9-8 on the season and 1-0 in conference play. Clark County dropped to 3-11 on the season and 1-2 in the conference. Adam Huckey led the Indians with 16 points.
