The Beulah Miners started the game ranked No. 4. They may not hold on to that ranking for very long.

On Jan. 20, the Tigers defeated the Miners at home by a score of 56-46. The Region 7 match up started slow for the Tigers, but a quick five points by senior Daniel Prince, that included a buzzer-beating 3-point basket, would turn the tables just before the second quarter ended.

The Tigers opened the second half with a two point lead and didn’t relinquish it.

Prince finished his evening with 13 points, and five rebounds.

Cleaner play by New England and many miscues by the Miners contributed to the momentum swing.

Entering the final quarter of play, New England had an eight point lead.

Beulah committed three more fouls than the Tigers and they took advantage. New England made 13 out of 18 shots from the free-throw line on the evening, shooting 73 percent.

A better performance than Beulah’s 46 percent from the line.

Prince lead the team with 13 points, senior Ty Nordy was right behind him with 12 of his own.

Leading the way for the Miners was senior Jett Hettich with 14. Junior Alec Battest was second with 11.

The win takes New England to a 9-2 overall record and an undefeated 3-0 record in the region. Beulah falls to 5-2 overall and 2-1 in the region.

The Tigers play Mandaree at home on Jan. 23.
