Tiger Sharks raise record to 4-2

With age comes to the ups and downs similar to the stock market, said Port St. Joe Jr./Sr. High boys’ basketball Coach Derek Kurnitsky.

The Tiger Sharks demonstrated that last week, pushing past Bozeman and South Walton with second-half runs before falling at Blountstown on a bad shooting night.

The contrasts were evident between Friday’s 79 points scored against South Walton followed by a 46-point output versus Blountstown on Saturday night.

“We are very young but we are talented,” Kurnitsky said of his team, 4-2 overall and 2-1 in District 1-1A play. “We just need to learn to be more consistent, to play good defense every night, to shoot well every night, to play as a team every night.

“It is early and we are just trying to improve every game. We are getting there.”

The week started at home against Bozeman and a 66-61 victory.

The Tiger Sharks were down two points at the half, but jumped on the Bucks in the second half to pull away.
