Falcon boys hoops looks to rebound from losing streak against Tigers

January 8th, 2013 at Tue, 8th, 2013 at 1:27 pm by benwatanabe

Losing four games in a row, the Falcon boys basketball team had a short rest before facing the Granite Falls Tigers on the road tonight.
The Falcons lost an international game to Penrith, a team from Australia, 59-41 on Monday night.
The Tigers (2-4; 6-6 overall) are one spot ahead of the Falcons in the Cascade Conference. South Whidbey’s offense has sputtered in recent games, which allowed opposing teams to score quickly and often.
In the past three conference games, South Whidbey allowed 85, 67 and 71 points. On the season, the Falcons allow an average of almost 60 points while only scoring 48. The Tigers, however have a positive difference between their points scored (59.7) and points allowed (57.5).

Reporter for the South Whidbey Record. Currently I cover Langley, South Whidbey Fire/EMS, the South Whidbey Parks & Recreation District, Clinton and sports. On any given night or any given weekday, I'm likely watching a baseball, basketball or football game on TV while reading Mother Jones, Esquire, The New York Times, The Seattle Times, The Daily Herald or scrolling through Twitter. If I can go sailing, I do. Fishing is a recently discovered hobby, but there are few things as exciting as getting a fish on the line and the battle between urgency and patience to haul it in. I don't much care for pets, but probably want to pet your dog or hold your cat.
