Tarver attempted a desperation 22 footer at the buzzer that hit the rim and bounded off to send the game into overtime. The Tiger took their last lead of the night with 1:57 left on a Danny Driver Up-in of his own miss, 53-51. Bonner deadlocked the contest for the final time with an inside bank-shot with 1:27 remaining. Wise put in a 12 footer with 0:51 left to give Fairfield a 55-,53 lead before Griffin decided the issue with a freebie with 0:05 showing on the clock for the final 56-53 reading. The Eagle's man-to-man defense baffled the Tigers in the early portion of the contest. Blair scored inside for the Tiger 14 seconds deep into the en- counter for a 2-0 lead. Fairfield quickly came back with buckets from Wise and Griffin for a 4-2 lead with 5:40 left in the first period.

The Eagles came hack with an eight point streak, aided by a technical foul call on Jackson, to ac- count for the 14 point lead, 28-14 with 3:29 left in the half. From this point on, with visions of a first round title in their minds, the Tigers out-gunned the Eagles until the frustrating end. By Benny Rogers scheduled to play Crockett Tuesday night and will journey to Palestine to battle Westwood tomomow night. The Tigers' schedule called for a road trip to Rusk on Tuesday night and has them hosting Teague's dangerous Lions tomorrow night. Westwood pays a visit here next Tuesday. Action gets started at 5 p.m. with a ninth grade contest. TIGERETTES WIN FINALE Coach Terry Ticknor's Tigerettes closed the season with an impressive 50-39 win over Crockett's Lady Bulldogs in Crockett last Thursday. The Tigerettes jumped off to an 8-3 first quarter lead and never trailed the remainder of the way. By the halftime intermission the Tigerettes were up by II, 22-11. The Lady 'Dogs took the third period, outscoring the local cagers 14-6 to cut the lead 28-25 going into the final stanza. The Tigerettes overcame the sluggish period to out-total Crockett 22- 14 and claim the season-ending win. Jessie Barron's 15 points were good enough to capture the overall scoring honors. Karen Jackson added I0 tallies to the Tigerette effort and Marilyn Davis had nine. Lisa Woolverton and Julie Sneed finished with eight apiece. With the victory the Tigerettes close with a 13-14 season worksheet and finish their first season in 18AAA play at 3-7. Fairfield and Westwood finished tied for the league lead and will battle sometime this week for the champion- ship. JV GIRLS DROP TWO In their final week of action, the Junior Varisty Tigerettes lost their final two contests. Fairfield destroyed the Tigerettes 43-12 on Tuesday and Crockett nipped them 31-28 last Thur- sday. Jackie Coleman, who led the local jayvees in both outings, scored all 12 tallies in the loss to Fairfield and pum- ped in 20 more in the setback to Crockett. Other scorers in the Crockett tilt were Bonnie Tanner with three, Michelle Ashiock with two, Pare Hayes with two and Trisha Allen with a free throw. The two setbacks dropped the Jy Tigerettes to an overall 6-10 season ledger. In 18AAA play the girls were 2- 8. GRAYS SHATTERS ANOTIlER Tyler Junior College's Robin Grays gave an overflowing Cardinal Gym- nasium crowd an encore performance of the backboard breaking ability he originally displayed on Jan. 24 in Wagstaff Gymnasium prior to the first scheduled Henderson County-Tyler en- counter. Grays' first backboard breaking miracle forced postponment of that tilt but that was not to be the case this time, however, as Henderson County officials were prepared. After only a 42 minute delay, which only pushed the scheduled starting time back 29 minutes, the long awaited renewal of the rivalry finally took place. The delay proved well worth the wait for Cardinal fans as the Cardinals stun- ned the nation's third-ranked Apaches, 55-52, in overtime. Young Bobcats take first win of new season The Cross Roads Basketball Association began its season Saturday, Feb. 14, with a contest between the Cross Roads 11-12 year old boys and Fairfield 11-12 year olds. James Pryor's Cross Roads Bobcats defeated Carroll's Fairfield team with a 34-33 win. High point scorers for the Bobcats were Keith Pryor with 13, Greg Tunnell and Ruben Austin with seven each. Randy Johnson was high point for Fair- field with 18 and Marcus Shedd has nine. 980-81 Tiger / Scoreboard :I By BENNY ROGERS The Fairfield Eaglettes sank I0 free throws in the final quarter here Feb. 9 TIGERS t to thwart a strong upset bid by the L.., Tigers ........... 45 Frankston ........... 60 L...
