Bradwell kept its season-long win streak alive with a 43-25 win over Jenkins at home Friday night.

Lady Tiger coach Faye Baker said the Lady Tigers, who usually get rolling in the second half, had a sluggish final two periods after posting 29 points in the first half.

"We had a low scoring third quarter," she said. "We missed easy shots."

Despite having a 20-0 overall record and 12-0 region, Baker said her No. 8-ranked team has room for improvement as the regular season winds down.

"We haven’t peaked at all even though we’ve been successful," Baker said. "What we try to harp on are the things we are not doing well. Even though we are 20-0 there are still things we can work on."

The Region 3-AAAAA playoffs start Feb. 11.

In boys’ action, Bradwell played host to top-seeded Jenkins High Friday night and the Warriors showed why they’re the top team in Region 3-AAAAA by toppling the Tigers 64-49. They are 3-15 overall and 3-10 in Region 3-AAAAA.
