The Malone Tigers are peeking at just the right time.  Friday night, they boarded the Yellow Dog to head to Central.  The long trip was more than worth it with a 56-43 Tiger win.

Malone controlled the first half, hands down.  They posted 11 points in the first quarter while holding Central to six points. Taylor Brown had the hot hands, sinking a three, and picking up two from the line, and a bucket.  

Malone’s offense found the eighth cylinder in the second quarter with 20 points going on the board. The home team was held to just eight points, giving Malone a 31-14 lead midway through the game.  Seven Tigers put points on the board in the second quarter with Starell Hearns leading the way with six, followed by Ocasio Murff with five points. On board with four each was Taylor Brown and Curtis Miley. 

The two teams knotted it up at 12 each in the third quarter, keeping the 17-point lead for Malone. Jermaine Powell and Odarius Murff brought the crowd to life with three-point shots in the third quarter. With one quarter to go, Malone was in the driver’s seat, 43-26.

The final quarter went to Central who posted 17 points but their rally fell short of a comeback. Malone countered with 13 points to seal the 56-43 win. Jarrod Southwell led in the fourth quarter with seven points, including a three-pointer from way outside.

Leading the Tigers on the night was Taylor Brown with 11 points, followed by Joshua Rivers with eight points. Checking in with seven points each were Odarius Murff, Jermaine Powell, and Jarrod Southwell, while Demontrae Decree and Curtis Miley both has six points each.
