Jags Fall to Tuscarora

December 12, 2015

The Northwest Jags were hoping to begin a winning streak as they hosted the Tuscarora Tigers from Frederick County at the Jags Den in Germantown, but this catfight proved too much for Northwest as they fell 57-46 to a Tuscarora team that posted a 14-7 record last year and made a run into the 3A postseason.

   The Jags fell behind early and could not make up the points. They trailed at halftime 24-19.

   With 3:30 remaining in the third quarter Northwest was able to bring get within two points after senior Tim Biakapia drained two free-throws to make the score 27-25.

   The Jags were led by senior Tyrell Richardson, who had 16 points and went eight-for-13 from the charity stripe. The only other Jaguar in double digits was senior Justin Woodard, who pitched in five field goals for 10 points. But the Tigers roared back going on a 14-point run and holding the Jags without a point until the well into the fourth quarter. The next time the Jags would score, they were down 41-27 with 6:49 remaining in the game.

   Northwest seemed to have trouble getting the ball in the net as they the Tigers contested every shot, or forced the Jags to alter their shot at the last second and it would bounce off the rim.

   The Tigers were led by J. Washington with 19 points, including going seven-for-nine from the free-throw line. Tuscarora returned nine juniors from last year’s team had three seniors in double figures; 12 points from Rashad Johnson and 11 each from John Chaney and Isaiah Tillman.

   The loss drops the Jags to 1-2 for the young season. They will travel to Blake on Monday to face the 2-1 Bengals who are riding a two-game win streak after beating Rockville 65-52 on Friday night, and Wheaton 72-47 on Tuesday.
