BAILEYVILLE – A big third quarter by the B&B Falcons put the game out of reach for the Washington County boys on Friday at Baileyville. The Tigers were only down by eight points at halftime, but B&B used a 17-9 third quarter to extend their lead and ended up handing a league loss to the Tigers, 51-38. “We really played a pretty decent game against B&B, but shooting woes that pretty much lasted the entire game put us in an early hole, and wouldn’t allow us to climb out of that hole that we had dug ourselves into,” said WCHS Head Coach Lyle Thompson.
