In the varsity game the Lady Tigers were trying to stop a four game skid as they took on conference opponent,Osceola. In the first quarter things got off to a slow start offensively for both teams. The Lady Tigers were able to get ball movement but just couldn’t get their shots to fall. Their defense was really solid from the beginning and hitting the defensive boards kept Osceola from getting any of their offense going. After one the Tigers led 6-2. In the second quarter the Tiger’s offense finally got going and were able to build a half time lead of 20-10. After making some adjustments at half time the Tigers switched up their defense used more pressure and were able to keep the offense on pace and at the end of three the Lady Tigers led 36-17. The fourth quarter the Tigers probably let up a little on defense but kept their offense going. Towards the end of the quarter both teams emptied their benches and the Lady Tigers won the game 50-32. With the win the Tigers improved to 12-11 and 2-2 in conference. They will play next on Tuesday against Lakeland.
