  • Tigers move on with win

    The Rockwood Tigers’ slow and methodical approach won out over the fast paced Wartburg Bulldogs Thursday night at Dallas Davis Gym, eliminating the home team from the District 3 playoffs, 60-38.

    Rockwood’s defensive pressure paid off early.

    “We played good defense,” Tiger Coach Paul Kamikawa said. “I think Wartburg shot the ball 7-of-24 in the first half and we got better in the second half defensively.

    “We figured them out a little bit and handled their run and jump well.”

    Midway’s fast paced attack made the score 15-0 before anyone could blink.

    That was evident from the beginning.
