The third quarter has been trouble for Scotland County, and that was again the case on Friday night in Edina as Knox County blew the game open with a 21-6 run to best the Tigers 63-43 in a key conference tilt.

The Eagles took an 18-14 lead in the first period as Donovan Edwards and former Tiger Lee Tague combined to score 14 points. Kyler Burkhiser hit a three-pointer and Jacob Blessing and Lucas Howard each had a pair of field goals to keep the Tigers close.

Blessing continued to be the go-to guy in the second period, adding a couple buckets for Scotland County. Knox County was still able to extend the lead to 29-22 at the intermission.

The game got away from the visiting team in the third period. Edwards hit a pair of big three-pointers for the Eagles. SCR-I could only manage two field goals during the key eight-minute stretch that saw the margin grow to 50-28.

Knox County put the game away at the free throw line, making eight of 10 down the stretch to seal the 63-43 win.

Tague finished with 20 points to lead all scorers. Edwards added 17 points for the victors.

SCR-I (4-4) was led in scoring by Howard with 15 points. Blessing finished with 10 points for the Tigers, who fell to 2-2 in the Tri-Rivers Conference.
