Tigard stands alone in first

The Tigers get wins over both Hillsboro and Century


TIGARD — The Tigard High School boys basketball team now finds itself alone at the top.

Alone at the top of the Pacific Conference standings, that is.

The Tigers, with their 77-58 home win over Hillsboro on Tuesday, coupled with Forest Grove’s 71-63 loss at Newberg, puts Tigard all by itself on top of the Pacific Conference standings.

Tigard, with Tuesday’s win, improved to 6-0 in conference play and to 10-5 on the season. Forest Grove, which was tied with the Tigers for first place, fell to 5-1 in conference games and to 12-4 on the season.

Senior guard Bryan Burg paced Tigard in Tuesday’s game with 24 points. Senior Nick Kaelin added 11 points and senior Troy Scott scored 10.

Tyler Fernstrom led Hillsboro with 20 points. The Spartans fell to 2-4 in conference games and to 4-12 on the season with the setback.

Prior to Tuesday’s game, Tigard scored a 74-55 victory over Century in a conference game played Friday at Tigard High School.

Berg and junior post Joel Johnson led a balanced Tiger scoring attack in the win with 15 points apiece.

Senior wing Elijah Simon scored 14 points, Kaelin had 10 and senior Jett Even scored nine.

The Tigers’ grip on sole possession of first place will be put to the test on Friday, when Tigard travels to Forest Grove for a conference game starting at 7:15 p.m.

On Tuesday, Tigard will be home to face Glencoe at 6:45 p.m.
