Paschal leads Chipley past Port St. Joe

“We played like middle-schoolers tonight,” Parker said of his team which is actually of middle school age. The Lady Tiger Sharks have no seniors or juniors and three sophomores and start two eighth-graders. “I told them rebounding and defense win in the playoffs and we didn’t do either very well tonight.

“But we are likely to be right back here next year and the year after. We are both young teams.”

Chipley completely confounded a flagging Port St. Joe team in the final period, scoring the first eight points of the quarter while stifling Port St. Joe with changing defenses.

The Lady Tiger Sharks did themselves no favors, unable to convert inside against the Chipley man defense when they saw it and unable to hit outside against a  2-3 zone.

“We worked all week on switching, from man to a 2-3 to a 1-2-2 zone,” Tuel said. “We wanted to be ready for whatever they threw at us.”
