Multiple Teams · Late Run Propels Tigers Past Gracemont


Union City’s Junior High Boys went toe to toe with a tough Gracemont team on Tuesday night. This was the final game before a long layoff for the Tigers. Bryson Hays and Nando Pizano put the Tigers on the board in the first but still found themselves down 8-5 after 1 quarter of play. Defense proved to be the key in the first half. Both teams struggled to find the hoop. After one half of play the Tigers were down 14-12. The third quarter was much of the same for the Tigers. Gracemont extended their lead 21-16. The fourth quarted proved to be the difference maker as the Tigers put up 10 points. Nando Pizano’s three pointer pulled the Tigers within striking distance and a few late free throws my Jason Schieber and Jack Walkabout proved to be enough and the Tigers held on to a 26-25 victory.
