The Graceville Tigers faced a Tiger from a different county when they took on Blountstown Saturday night with the district championship on the line.  The game was held in the host town, Vernon. Graceville had an enjoyable ride home when they dominated the game, taking a 52-30 win over Blountstown. 

The orange and black Tigers outscored their opponent 17-5 in the first period of play, setting the tone for the night. Leading Graceville with a duo of threes was Andre Brown. Cyprian James and Xavian Sorey had a pair of baskets each. Dyron Porter had a shot from three-point range. 

Blountstown took the second quarter 14-9, but Graceville maintained a 25-19 lead going into the halftime break. Joell Green led his team with two baskets. Cyprian James had a bucket and was one-for-one from the line. 

Graceville posted 10 third-quarter points and held the red and black Tigers to five points, giving Graceville a 35-24 lead with one quarter to play. Xavian Sorey led with six points, including a shot from downtown, a basket and was one-for-one from the charity stripe. 

The Graceville Tigers won the final quarter 17-6 and that was more than they needed to solidify the win and take home the district championship. Xavian Sorey led his Tigers with a three-pointer, a basket and making good on his free throw attempt. Joell Green had two buckets, followed by Dyron Porter going three-for-four from the line.

Xavian Sorey led his team in scoring on the night with 18 points. Checking in with 10 points each were Andre Brown and Joell Green. Dyron Porter was on board with six points.  The Tigers have been through three coaches in two years and have worked through the changes as a team and advance out of district into quarter regionals.  

Congratulations to the Graceville Tigers and Coach Cameron Dozier on their district championship from the publisher and staff at the Jackson County Times.
