After a defensive battle in the third quarter, in which both teams managed By ClllP SOUZA Malakoff News Sports Writer PALESTINE--The Malakoff Tigers continued to roll their black and gold express toward their first district championship in a decade. Trailing by two points entering the final period, the Tigers reeled off 21 fourth quarter tallies to take a 53-44 win over Palestine Westwood here Feb. 6. The Tigers, one of the hottest teams in East Texas, added the eighth car to their consecutive victory train and grabbed at least a tie for the first half championship in district 18AAA with a 4-0 record. The Tigers played host to Fairfield Tuesday night and a victory would give them the out-right first half title. Junior post Richard Blair, who has averaged 22.1 points per game in 18AAA play and scored 38 in the Teague contest, again turned in a brilliant per- formance with 22 points. Russell Tar- ver also topped the 20 point mark for the second game in a row with 21 points on the night. The Tigers, winners of an early season 59-44 win over these same Pan- thers, trailed in this one almost the en- tire game. With the Panthers ahead 33-32, Tar- ver knocked in a 10-foot jump shot that set off a game winning 10 point Tiger spurt and gave them a 42-33 lead with 3: 36 left to play. The Panthers refused to die, however. Dwight Hutchinson got a bucket, while Elvin Crawford added two to cut the Tiger lead to 49-42 with 2" 40 remaining to be played. Neither team could hit on several trips down the floor until the 1:09 mark when Panther Walter Samuel worked in for a lay-up to cut the lead to 49-44. Blair got an inside lay-t p with 0:59 left and Tarver got a steal and ham- mered home an eight footer two secon- ds later on a stolen inbound pass to finalize a 53-44 Tiger win. After falling behind early 6-2, the Panthers came back behind Graylin Crawford's six points to take a 10--8 lead after one quarter of play. The Panthers continued to hang on to their lead in the second quarter. Samuel and Hutchinson sacred four points each, while Blair tallied seven for the Tigers that left them trailing at the half 25-22. The Tiger offense remained cold in the third period, scoring only 10 points. But where the offense lacked, the defense more than made up for it with aggressive play as they limited the Panthers to just eight points to enter the final period trailing 33-32 when the winning spree began.

Trailing by four, 29-25, as the final stanza began the Lady Trojans com- menced a rally to overtake Dawson. With 5:17 left in the game Louise Hor- nbuckle slipped through the Dawson defense and sank an easy layup to cut the Lady 'Dogs' lead to 33-31. Minutes later Amy Rounsavail knocked home a long range effort to pull the Lady Trojans even with the Dawson cagers, 33-33. Dawson wasted little time and re-took the lead on a medium range set shot at the 1:55 mark. Thirty-one seconds later Lori Tidmore put the score at 35-35 with a long set shot. The Lady Bulldogs elected to kill the remaining 1:20 and play for the final shot. With just under one minute remaining a poor Dawson pass glanced off another Lady Bulldog and rolled into the backcourt area for an apparant + backcourt violation. The officials, however, failed to call the infraction and Dawson retained possession. Dawson made the most of the break and swished the net from long range with 10 seconds left to take a 37-35 lead. The Lady Trojans attempted to get one last shot but it was to no avail as they had been denied victory once again despite a brilliant effort. In the Junior Varsity boys' contest Trinidad came away a 25-22 winner. Derek Jackson led the Trojans with eight markers. Other scorers were Tim Polk with six, Anthony Livingston with four,James Boyd with three and Jerry Stanfield and Greg King with two apiece. MARILYN DAVIS went up for a jump shot against the l.'airfield Eaglettes Mon- day night in a hard fought hattie at Tiger Stadium. The 'rigerettes will end their season this week.
