    It was not a good night for the Oliver Springs Bobcats. The Rockwood Tigers pounced early and never let up winning, 72-44.

    Early on it was obvious that the Bobcats did not have their head in the game. The Rockwood Tigers were able to score sixteen un-answered points before the Bobcats ever broke onto the score board. The first Bobcat basket came with less than 2 minutes left to go in the first period.

  • Midway shuts down Lady Tigers

    The Midway Lady Waves were aggressive in shutting down the Sunbright Lady Tigers Tuesday night, 57-34.

    The win puts Midway in a three-way tie for second place in the district with Sunbright and Wartburg.

    “The girls are really working hard and have a great attitude,” Midway Coach Mike Hayes said. “I think we have really gotten better since before Christmas and hope we can keep things rolling.

    “We’ve played some good teams and Sunbright had a bad game tonight. I hope we had something to do with that.

    At the end of the first quarter of play, the Tigers were in full control with a score of 12-7.
