The Malakoff Tigers and Tigerettes won one game between them last weekend in the Brownsboro In- vitational Tournament and still managed to claim consolation honors. The MIIS cagers have 'Ole Man Win- ter' to thank for the consolation trophies. Last Friday's snowy blast forced tournament officials to cancel the loser's bracket games after the opening round. The Tigers posted an opening round win and the Tigerettes received an opening round bye, saving both from the victimized loser's bracket. Snapping a 12-game losing streak, which dated hack to the final three games of last season, the Tigers defeated Winona, 57-56, in the opening round. MHS fell to Brownsboro, 65-37, and Qulnian, 58-41, after the victory. The Tigerettes dropped a 64-39 decision to Brownsboro in the second round and were pounded, 50-36, by Frankston in the battle for third place. ,Tigers 57-Quinlan 56 Sparked by the play of sophomore John Costlow and Kyle Summerhill, the Tigers edged Quinlan's Panthers, 57-56. Costlow and Summerhill came off the bench in the third period to help the Tigers overcome a seven point deficit midway in the third period. Mike Rid- die pulled the Tigers even at 38-38 with a pair of layups off stolen passes. John Tanner scored 13 of his 25 points in the fourth quarter to give the Tigers the win. Jeff Prentice tossed in 14 points and Summerhill and Riddle hit six each. Brownsboro 65-Tigers 37 After pulling to a 14-14 tic late in the first period, the Tigers came apart at the seams and dropped a 65-37 decision to Brownsboro. Tanner was again the Tigers' leading scorer with nine points. Prentice finished with seven and Michael Hoyt had six and Daniel Blair had five. Scott Williams was the game's top STRETCHING THE POINT--MHS Junior Jeff Prentice (2.3) had to do a little stretching to get a shot off after driving the baseline against Qulnlan at the battle for third place in the Brownsboro Invitational Tournament. Quinlan downed the Tigers, 58-41. to hand MSH the consolation trophy. (Staff photo by Benny Rogers1 Kids outgrown their clothes, toys, furniture?

But he would never complain, don't you know. Santa, I don't know if you've ever done any sportswriting or have a game from our press box, but if you have you must know to determine what yard line the teams are on. Most fields have markers on the sideline, but ours are on the fence, which cheerleaders and twirlers on the sideline. Only our PA announcer, after study, can ever figure the yard line out and he won't tell anyone. The press never has a clue. To remedy this problem I suggest you do one of two things. some new markers with the instruction there to be put on the belong or leave us the necessary paraphernalia to paint the markers on the field. We'll be happy either way. Just before you leave the stadium take a look at our sco rel~ excellent shape and gets the job done, but it's blue and white, wl live in Wills Point. I realize the scoreboard was a giR a few years seems to me our school colors would be more appropriate. That's the fact Citizens State Bank, donater of the scoreboard, no longer its name is still up there on the scoreboard. I don't want to get picky or anything S.C., but you never big six-foot-five giants you leave at places like Rusk, Fairfield Why's that? Is it something we said or did? After you leave Tiger Stadium I know you'll be short on time, following items for the following people in the stocking that will goal post in the south end zone.
