Bradwell's Tigers battled at Jenkins High Friday night and Jenkins showed a renewed vitality, despite their record, giving the Tigers a challenge into overtime.
"With Jenkins being ranked last in the region and Bradwell ranked among the top three, the teams are coming out to play us now," Tiger coach Pete Woodard said. "They know we are not pushovers anymore and when we come, we come to play. My hat goes off to Jenkins because they really played a good game last night."
Woodard said his team was a little flat at the start of the game and felt his team may have been a bit complacent since they defeated Jenkins in their first meet.
"I think complacency settled in very early in our game because we jumped out to a 9-0 run and after that we didn't score for a while," he said. "Jenkins closed the gap and it was a back and forth game until overtime.
Woodard said the Tigers did go into overtime displaying a lot more intensity, giving them the edge over a Warriors team that started to show signs of fatigue.
He said his team would focus on one game at a time as they prepared for Wayne County on Saturday before hosting, number one and undefeated Savannah High on Tuesday.
While the tigers are ranked in the top three or four, there is no doubt who leads the 3-AAAAA region as Savannah quashed Johnson's hope Friday night by three points (55-52).
"We are going to take one game at a time," he said. "We will try and win tonight and afterwards focus on Savannah."
Their battle against Savannah High is Tuesday at 7:30 p.m.
