Tigers put up 31 fourth quarter points in win over Shawnee

By Steve Dunford 

THOMPSONVILLE –  It was not a pretty start, with the Tigers up 23-16 at halftime, but T’ville outscored Shawnee 50-29 in the second half to pick up a 73-45 win.

“It took us a while to get going.  We are going to have to play better in future games than we did in the first half.”  The Tiger coach Pete Gordon said after tonight’s win.

Anthony Darge led the Tigers with 20 points tonight 18 in the second half.  Corbin Fitch added 18.  All ten Tigers that saw action got in the scoring column.

Trenton Matlock tied Darge with a game high 20 for the Redskins and Austin Warren added 14.

Thompsonville improves to 9-7 on the season.  They will face Agape Christian from Marion,  at 2:00 p.m. in the Martin Luther King Shootout at Meridian, weather permitting on Saturday.

Shawnee falls to 0-7 on the season.  They also face Agape in their next game on January 16th.

With Thompsonville having a non-conference game tonight, and Gallatin County idle, the scores from all three games in the GEC were shockers.  Crab Orchard beat Carrier Mills 74-60, in a game that was a lot tighter than I expected. Galatia upset Hardin County 57-48, and NCOE upset Pope County 55-40.

The conference tournament coming up in a couple weeks will be interesting.  It sounds like there will be a lot of upsets that week.
