Tiger Sharks finding the zone on defense

Last week included a streak of district victories, as Port St. Joe took down Liberty County 71-41, Blountstown 50-36 and Franklin County 70-37.

Notable among those box scores are the number of periods – six out of 12 – during which the Tiger Sharks held opponents to single digits.

“Since Christmas we have been playing zone and it has really shown,” Kurnitsky said. “We are playing good defense right now. And we are also starting to get more guys scoring.”

The Tiger Sharks had six players score nine or more points in last Tuesday’s blowout of Liberty County.

Cory Calloway led the way with 19 but Chad Quinn, Marcel Johnson and Marquez Johnson each had 10 points and Ramello Zaccaro and Natron Lee had nine apiece.

The Tiger Sharks were up 32-20 after holding Liberty County to seven points in the second quarter and coasted.

Luke Galloway and Jak Riley each added two points.
