WAITSBURG - Weston-McEwen's boys came out ahead 47-45 in a battle with Waitsburg-Prescott Tuesday.

The TigerScots were up 20-19 at the half and led by as many as eight points in the third quarter before allowing W-P to tie it up with just eight seconds to play.

But the TigerScots put the ball into Dallas Reich's hands, and he scored with three seconds to play.

Ron Terjeson scrambled after a defensive rebound to pick up an inbounds pass and end the game.

"We seem to struggle with letting teams back in the game," said W-M coach Brian Pickard. "But this was a back-and-forth game the whole way."

Miles Thul led the TigerScots with 16 points and five 3's. Reich had 14 points and one 3 on the night.

Zach Bartlow scored 17 points for Waistsburg-Prescott in the effort and had nine of his team's 39 rebounds.

The TigerScots had 28 rebounds on the night.

"That was a good team that we played tonight," said W-P head coach T.J. Scott. "We're a little bit behind the learning curve because our football team went so late into the season, but we'll get it sorted out."

Pickard was pleased with his bench in the win.

"We had some early foul trouble and our whole bench came in and held on to the five-point lead," he said. "That's always big."

The TigerScots move to 3-2 in preseason play. They open league play at Union Friday.

"We've been shooting the ball terribly," Pickard said of the TigerScots' preseason action. "I think we got a little better last night, we had six 3's, so hopefully we are getting better.

"But the biggest thing we need to work on is that we'll pull ahead with eight or 10 points and we have to finish a team, and not let them back in," he said. "That's the biggest thing. In both of our losses, we had double-digit leads and we let them slip away."
