Hicksville 44 Tinora 20

The Tinora Rams hoped to build off last week’s efforts as they hosted GMC foe, the Aces of Hicksville in a Friday night showdown.

After last Saturday’s win over Stryker and a Friday night battle that came down to the final seconds against rival Ayersville, the Rams came in tonight winning 2 of their last 3 games, losing only the heartbreaker to the Pilots.

Tinora entered with a deceiving 4-10 overall record, 0-3 in Green Meadows Conference play. The visiting Aces of Hicksville traveled over with a 9-5 record, 1-2 in conference play.

A fantastic crowd was on hand on a Friday night at Tinora High School, the Tinora Rams cheerleaders hosted their annual biddy cheerleading event, everyone from aunts, to uncles, to grandparents were in attendance, even Hall of Fame coach, and ex Rams coach, Paul Wayne was in attendance tonight.

Unfortunately for all those Rams fans in attendance tonight, from the opening tap to the final buzzer saw a game dominated by the Hicksville Aces.

Hicksville Ace Brody Balser put Hicksville up 2-0, the Aces never looked back after that. The closest the Rams were to get was a 4-4 tie midway through the opening quarter. Hicksville grabbed a 10-7 lead after one quarter.

Things for the Rams offense didn’t improve in the second stanza. The Hicksville defense had Rams leading scorers Luke Harris and Nolan Schafer on lockdown all night long. The dynamic duo came in averaging just over 26 PPG. The two Tinora scoring threats ended the half with just 5 combined points.
Hicksville led Tinora at the half, 23-9.
Aces 6′ 6″ three sport star Jackson Bergman led the way for the Aces with eight first half points. Bergman is headed to Toledo on a baseball scholarship.

Hicksville head man Tony Tear and his Aces kept the same game plan in the second half, limit the touches for Harris and Schafer, pound the ball inside to big man Jackson Bergman.

The Aces grabbed a 34-14 lead after three quarters, cruising to a 44-20 win over the hosts, the Tinora Rams.

Tinora falls to 4-11 with the loss, 0-4 in GMC play. The Rams vs Hilltop game for Saturday night has been cancelled by Hilltop. The Rams are next in action at Paulding on January 28.
