Tired Tigers fall at home

— Hayden High School boys basketball coach Jody Harvey said a brutal schedule that left his team playing three games in three nights finally took a toll on his team Saturday.

He said they played tired at home in a 49-37 loss to West Grand.

“It was a hard stretch. NBA guys don’t like to play three games in three nights like that,” Harvey said.

Still, the Tigers managed to give West Grand a good game.

Hayden bounced back after a hapless first half that left them in a 13-point hole. They cut the deficit to single digits in the third quarter but couldn’t keep that momentum rolling into the fourth.

Thomas Rauch had 15 points and Juan Carlos Valdez 12.

“We have to regroup and get ready for Soroco at home on Friday,” Harvey said.
