A game of runs swung Crothersville’s way.
In Friday’s Southern Athletic Conference game against a winless Henryville team, the Tigers ended the third quarter on a 12-2 run to lead 40-32 going into the final quarter. The host Hornets managed to outscore the Tigers 21-18 in the fourth quarter, but Crothersville pulled out a 58-53 win.
“It really was a game of runs,” Tigers coach Greg Kilgore said. “I told the kids all week it was a real dangerous game because it was (Henryville’s) homecoming, and they are a pretty good 0-13 team. They play a pretty tough schedule.”
Henryville started the first quarter on a 9-2 spurt, but Crothersville closed on a 13-1 run for a five-point edge.
The Hornets then had a turnover-free start to the second quarter and outscored the Tigers 12-2. Crothersville responded with six straight points, and the score was tied at 23 at halftime.
