GODLEY — Bryce Birl scored 12 points and Dylan Ellis added 11, while Caden Smith and Tristan Black added 10 points each as the Glen Rose Tigers picked up their sixth straight win with a 54-46 road victory over Godley on Friday night.

Glen Rose's Bryce Birl, seen here in action earlier in the year against Midlothian Heritage, scored a team-high 12 points in the Tigers' win over Godley on Friday night.

The Tigers (13-3) will put the winning streak on the line Monday afternoon at Tiger Arena when they host Lingleville (6-6) at 12:30 p.m. The JV will play prior.

Glen Rose led by two at the end of the first quarter against Godley, but the Wildcats quickly erased that deficit and built a six point lead with a 8-2 run early in the second quarter.

The Tigers answered with a 15-8 run, fueled by seven points from Cross Arrington, who tied the score at 22-22 with a 3-pointer with 2:56 left in the half, and then he gave the Tigers at 24-22 with a lay up a minute later. He finished with nine points in the game.

The Tigers eventually led by two at the break.

Godley scored the first five points of the second half to lead 29-26, and game was tied or the lead changed hands four more times before an offensive rebound and outback by Smith with three minutes left in the quarter gave the Tigers the lead for good.

Glen Rose led 41-33 heading into the fourth quarter and Godley cut it to six points twice but couldn’t get any closer.
