Morris Innovative Tigers show strides, lose to Calhoun

Despite losing 73-28 to Calhoun, coach Doug Peters called Thursday’s home showing the best he’s seen in Morris Innovative’s young varsity life.

Justin Scott scored 11 points to lead the Tigers, who fell to 0-12 overall and 0-6 in Region 7-2A in their first year playing a varsity schedule. Morris Innovative played a junior varsity schedule until this season.

“We probably played the best game we’ve played all year,” Peters said. “ ... Our effort was outstanding. I was very proud for staying with the best team in the region and playing them hard.”

Calhoun led 17-7 at the end of the first quarter and 38-11 at halftime, but Peters said the game “was closer than the score showed.” Freddie Tibbs added seven points, while Russell Burse and Tevin Robertson chipped in four each.

Morris Innovative hosts Pepperell Saturday at 1 p.m.
