Earlier this season the Golden Eagles handled BEA easily in a 63-30 road victory.  Bald Eagle must have had the rematch circled on their schedule as they battled hard and led Tyrone for much of the second and third quarters.  But a strong fourth quarter allowed the Golden Eagles to eek out a win, 46-44.

Tyrone started the game hot, scoring 18 in the first quarter. The team was making multiple shots from all over the court.  Freshman Landon DeHaas sunk two three-pointers in the first and led the team with 12 points on the night.  

The score at the end of the first was 18-9 Tyrone, but Bald Eagle closed the gap by going on a 13-4 run in the second.

“They were a solid team and hung with us after the second. Luckily we were able to finish the game with a win,” said sophomore Blaine Hoover.

Sophomore Damon Gripp was the second leading scorer for the Eagles with 11. DeHaas also lead the team in three-pointers with two.

The score was tied at halftime at 22-22, but the Bald Eagles came out of the locker room with momentum to start the third quarter and ended up taking the lead 32-37.

In the fourth quarter, Tyrone knew that they needed to step up their game to close the gap and take the lead.

In the nail-biting fourth quarter, both teams were scoring points back in the fourth. Finally, Tyrone prevailed scoring once and holding onto the ball to keep a final of 46-44.
