BOYS HOOPS: Tidioute falls at home

Tidioute was defeated by Jamestown (Pa.) by a score of 69-50 Saturday at Tidioute Community Charter School.

“We played really well, despite the final score,” said Tidioute coach Dave Manning. “We had a really good fourth quarter; the guys got hot and cut the lead to 10, we just couldn’t pull the rest of the way back. We had a slow second quarter that killed us.”

Despite the loss, Ben Kightlinger had one of his best games for the Bulldogs with a season-high 29 points. Teammate Brian Faulkner chipped in 13.

Jamestown also topped the Bulldogs in the junior varsity game, 48-28. Dan Heckman led Tidioute with 15 points in the loss.

Tidioute hosts Youngsville on Monday.
