TIPP CITY — New Knoxville’s chance to bury tournament-tested New Madison Tri-Village came in the first half when it built an eight-point lead.
When that didn’t happen, the Rangers were in for a physical, see-saw battle for the game’s final 20 minutes.
“That’s the way it’s been all year,” New Knoxville head coach Tim Hegemier said. “We just never seem to want to put anybody away.”
At the regional level, it’s a dangerous game to play.
