Tigers Trounce Wildcats 68-24

It took a little while to get rolling but once the SCR-I train got up to speed, there was no stopping the Tigers as they rolled over Milan 68-24 to keep the Wildcats winless this season.

A couple early buckets by Clint Cottrell helped Scotland County jump out to an 8-0 lead early in the first period. But the Tigers offense slowed down a bit allowing Milan to pull within 13-6 to close the first period.

The Wildcats actually pulled within five points early in the second period before the Tigers blew the game open with a 13-2 run. Cody Holt did the bulk of the damage with eight points during the spurt that saw the Tigers lead swell to 29-13.

A 32-17 halftime quickly grew out of control in the third period. Holt scored seven unanswered points sandwiched between a pair of buckets by Aaron Dale. Cottrell then took over, scoring seven straight points of his own. Holt, Dale and Cottrell each added another bucket before Milan got its first points of the third quarter. By that time the score was 58-19.

Carl Wittstock, Chris Humes and Bryce Blomme got into the score book in the fourth period as SCR-I completed the 68-24 rout.

Holt led Scotland County (10-9, 2-1) with 21 points. Cottrell chimed in with 13 points and Dale added 10 in the one-sided affair. Milan fell to 0-16 and 0-4 on the year.
