Tigers sweep Titans; Columbus boys held to 13 points

Tuesday, February 21, 2012

COLUMBUS -- Tyler Adams scored 16 of his game-high 20 points in the first quarter here Friday night as Fort Scott High's boys smashed Columbus, 71-13, in a Southeast Kansas League contest.

Tiger girls beat Columbus 46-28 as Brianne Lawrence and Katren Rienbolt each scored 13 points.

Tiger boys (5-1 SEK, 14-4 overall) held Columbus to just 4 points over the final three periods, shutting out the Titans (0-7, 6-13) in the third. Adams hit four 3-pointers in the opening quarter as Fort Scott jumped out to a 26-9 lead.

Kyle Altic added 12 points for the Tigers while Johnathan Stark and Daniel Durbin each chipped in with 10.

Tribune records go back to the 1954-55 season and there is no other game in those records in which Fort Scott held an opponent under 20 points.

Fort Scott's girls (4-2, 7-11) held Columbus (0-7, 4-15) to 10 points in the second half.

The Tigers will host two Southeast Kansas League doubleheaders this week to conclude the regular season. Pittsburg visits Thursday while Labette County comes to town Thursday night.
