Tigers get defensive in win over Beachwood

Chagrin Falls struggled to stay consistent on the offensive end of the court so the Tigers relied on their defense to carry them to a 55-43 Chagrin Valley Conference win over visiting Beachwood on Tuesday.

“I thought our defense was outstanding tonight for four quarters,” Chagrin Falls coach Dave Bargar said. “We couldn’t get in much rhythm offensively so we needed to step up and control the game on the defensive end of the floor.”

Despite the inconsistency, the Tigers were balanced on offense.

Cam Owen led the way with 14 points and Tate Yonker and Xavier Perez also scored in double figures with 11 points each. Josh Norton added nine points, 10 rebounds and five assists.

“We had another balanced attack tonight with three players in double figures,” Bargar said. “The game slowed down tremendously in the fourth quarter with fouls but we made enough to keep them from closing the gap.”

The Tigers improved to 3-0 overall and 1-0 in league play.

“It’s always good to start conference play with a win,” Bargar said. “We have another tough game on Friday when we travel to Perry.”
