The everlasting rivalry between the Portola Tigers and the Quincy Trojans is alive and well — and it gave birth to a “W” in the win-loss column for the Tigers as they squeaked past Quincy, 65-62, in the headline match of the 2014 Tiger Classic on Saturday night.
Both teams came into the game at 2-0, with Quincy defeating Biggs, 71-31, and Modoc, 73-53, while Portola bested the same two teams on 68-37 and 50-36 final scores, respectively.
From the outset the game was Portola’s to lose as it ran up as high as an eight-point lead in the opening eight minutes. Quincy was able to recover just a bit and pulled to within five by the end of the first period. Write comment (0 Comments)
