The Rockwood Middle Tigers and the Midway Middle Green Waves played Monday night.
In the boys game, the Tigers and Green Waves turned in a barn burner that Midway pulled out in overtime, 46-42.
In the opening girls game, Rockwood pulled away for a 35-11 win over the Lady Waves.
Both teams will be in action again on Monday as Midway travels to Lenoir City while Rockwood hosts Wartburg.
Rockwood head coach Jeff Allen may have broke a little sweat in the first half against Midway. His Lady Tigers missed a lot of shots and led only 8-2 at the end of one.
