Canton Cures Recent Woes With Big Win Over Tigers

After a 10-0 start that saw the team ranked as high as #3 in the state, the Canton Wildcats had fallen on tough times of late, going 6-6 over the past 12 games to fall out of the Missouri top 10.

Unfortunately for Scotland County, the Wildcats appeared to have cured whatever it was that ailed them as Canton came to Memphis and handed the Tigers a 58-38 defeat.

SCR-I stayed close early on behind the play of Cody Holt and Clint Cottrell. But Cantons Aaron Hill, the regions leading scorer, was a little too much to handle. The Wildcats guard hit four three pointers on the night.

The Tigers did not have an answer on their offensive end, managing just four points in the second period, falling behind 22-12 at the intermission.

Canton continued to edge away, outscoring the Tigers 10-7 in the third period to lead 32-19 with just eight minutes to play.

The final period proved exciting, if unfruitful for SCR-I, as the two teams combined for 45 points, nearly as many points as were scored in the first three quarters.

Hill finished with 25 points to lead all scorers as Canton improved to 17-6 on the year. The Wildcats are the top seed in the upcoming District 5 tourney where the Tigers will likely have to face them again if they wish to gain a district title.

Scotland County was led by Aaron Dale with 12 points. Cottrell and Holt each finished with eight points.
