Scoring by quarters:

 

Holmes: 24 - 13 - 24 - 22 --- 83

B'Wood: 22 - 20 - 20 - 16 --- 78

 

Scoring for Holmes:

 

Gray 28, Hayes 24, Rice 16, Knox 8, Palmer 5, Coston 2

 

Fangman finished with 31 for the Tigers and absolutely lit it up. Without his hot outside shooting, this is probably a blow out.

 

Unfortunately for him and his team, Holmes had 2 seniors that wanted it just as bad as Gray and Hayes combine for 52 of Holmes' 83. All three gave a great effort tonight.

 

Beechwood led by as many as 7 in the first half at 42-35 and led by as many as 7 in the third quarter at 58-51 before Gray and Hayes went on a tear, scoring 27 of Holmes final 33 points. During a span in the third quarter, the two scored 14 straight for Holmes, including a Hayes 3 that knotted the game at 66. Gray then got a steal against Fangman and scored at the other end for an and one to put the Dogs up 68-66. Beechwood would tie it again at 72- 72 but a Gray free throw, Rice 3 pointer, and another Gray basket would put Holmes on top by 6 at 78-72. Holmes missed some ft's down the stretch, but made just enough to hold on for the W.

 

Wasn't pretty, but credit Holmes for fighting back down 7 with around 5 mins left in the third.

Walter you got it captured well. Beechwood outplayed the 'dawgs for about 2 1/2 quarters. Then the light switch went on and Gray and Hayes took over. Holmes missed a few free throws down the stretch that was concerning. Fangman played his heart out. Man that kid shot lights out tonight. Gray had a quiet 28 points, but really played great defense in the 4th on Fangman. Holmes wore them down and pulled this one out. They don't have an easy game left.

Congrats to the Tigers on a great season they just couldn't pull through at the end. Fangman is a heck of a player and I hope to see him play on the college level. Watching this game gave me hope for next season with all the talent that they will still have.
