   Gobles had a terrible start against Coloma last Tuesday, scoring only five points in the first quarter of the Southwestern Athletic Conference contest.  Coach John Curtis regrouped his Tigers, and the girls responded with a 28-point burst in the second period, taking a 33-8 advantage into the locker room at halftime. 
   “After a slow first quarter, we really played well,” said Curtis. “We shot the ball well from the outside, especially Libbee Nason, who hit five 3s, which really helped.
   “It was a solid win for us.”
   In the second half, Gobles coasted to the 56-15 win. 
   Nason was deadly behind the three point line, from where she scored 15 of her total 18 points in the game. Maddy Tiller had 11 points and six rebounds, Kylee Mandigo added 11 points, and Emily Lopez hauled down eight rebounds.

   On Tuesday, the Tigers went to Constantine, where a 25-point third quarter paved the way for their 60-30 win.  The Tigers played well with nine girls scoring in the game.
   “We really had a great second half and probably moved the ball better than we have all year,” said Curtis. “We had 18 team assists tonight and that was crucial for us.”
   Tiller led the Tigers with 18 points, and Christiana Hunt scored 15 points. Nason helped out with seven assists and six steals in the game.
