GLEN ROSE — The Glen Rose Runnin’ Tigers’ two-game winning streak came to an end with a lopsided 72-21 loss to Waxahachie Life School on Friday night at Tiger Arena.
In the loss, the Tigers, who entered the game with back-to-back District 8-4A wins over the Alvarado and Godley, finished with their lowest offensive point total of the season in the 51-point loss. It was the fewest points the Tigers had scored in a game since dropping a 32-18 decision to Godley on Dec. 11, 2010.
With the loss, Glen Rose falls to 9-19 overall and 2-4 in district play. With six games remaining in the regular season, the Tigers still control their own destiny in regards to the playoffs. They are currently tied with Godley for the fourth playoff spot in the district.
The Tigers travel to Stephenville Tuesday for a 7:30 p.m. meeting with the Yellowjackets, who won the first meeting between the two teams at 39-32 in Glen Rose on Dec. 19.
Logan Thames tied the score at 2-2 against Life School with a pair of free throws with 5:33 left in the first quarter, but that’s all the Tigers would get in the quarter. Glen Rose trailed 24-2 at the end of the first, and it didn’t get its first field goal of the game — and only field goal and points in the second quarter — when Drayden James connected with 7:20 left in the half.
The Tigers trailed 45-7 at the half, and 54-10 and the end of the third quarter. Jett Gould’s 3-pointer was Glen Rose’s only points in the quarter.
Isaac Emerson and Gould led the Tigers with five points each, and Kolton Mooney and Thames had four points each.
For the game, the Tigers, who were hampered by the Mustangs’ first-half full-court pressure, managed just eight field goals in the game, while going 4 of 6 from the foul line.
