Tigers open new year with 64-49 win over Bulldogs
The Morris Area/Chokio-Alberta girls' basketball team downed Paynesville 64-49 in a battle of West Central North front-runners Friday on the Tigers' home court.
"This was a nice way to start the new year with a team win," said coach Dale Henrich.
The Tigers owned a 15-point lead at halftime before the Bulldogs chewed down the Tiger advantage to just three points with 12 minutes remaining. The Tigers then called a timeout and two minutes later they were up by 17.
