Purple Tigers break open close game late
Nov 23, 2006 12:00 am
WATERTOWN — Watertown's boys were barely treading water against Red Boiling Springs until breaking open a close game in the fourth quarter of a 47-30 win Monday night.
The Purple Tigers led 10-7 following the first quarter, 16-15 at halftime and 28-24 through three periods as they improved to 2-0.
"They made us play a slowdown game, which is not our game," Watertown assistant coach T.J. Hewitt said. "(In the fourth quarter) we were able to make some shots and get to our press."
Aaron Fountain had four straight steals in the fourth to fuel Watertown's run.
Justin Breece fired in four three-pointers on his way to 14 points for Watertown while Fountain tossed in 12. Victor Loza added eight points, James Shrum two triples for six, Dalton Phillips four and Levi Tschaekofske three.
Dustin Dozier flipped in 15 points from the post for Red Boiling Springs.
Watertown will travel to Hermitage Springs tonight.

CHATTANOOGA — Mt. Juliet Christian's boys seized control early in a 47-25 triumph over David Brainerd, the Saints' first win of the season.
The Saints led 12-6 following the first quarter and 25-9 at halftime as they rose to 1-2 for the season.
Victor Underwood tossed in 21 points and Bryce Middleton managed 12 for Mt. Juliet Christian.
"We got the ball to who needed to get it and our defense was very good tonight," Mt. Juliet Christian assistant coach David Kitchen said.
Devon Bradshaw finished with four points for Mt. Juliet Christian while Austin Wortman, Zach Womble, Jonathan Roberts and Dylan Gammon tossed in two each and Dillon Bradshaw and Zach Orr a free throw apiece as Coach Paul Christensen was able to go deep into his bench the last 1 1/2 quarters.
Mt. Juliet Christian will host Community next Tuesday.
