Tigers come up short at Rockmart

The Adairsville boys were edged by host Rockmart Thursday night at the Georgia Nylon Thread Shootout at The Rock, 51-48 in a first round game. The Yellow Jackets led at each quarter break, but the score was close throughout the night.

Rockmart led 15-12 after one period, 28-26 at halftime, and 40-37 through three quarters before holding on to that advantage for a three-point victory. Juke Boozer led Rockmart with 19 points.

Mason Boswell had a game-high 20 for the Tigers. Denarous Johnson followed with 15 points for Adairsville. Malachi Garder contributed six. Savaun Henderson had three points and Conor Crunkelton added two. With the win, Rockmart -- who recently added some football players to their roster after a state finals run -- improved to 2-4.

The loss was a third straight for Adairsville (4-7). The Tigers play a consolation game Friday night at 8:30 p.m. against Thomson and will have another consolation game on Saturday to close out the tournament.
