Tigers knock off LFO, advance to region title game

Tre Winters was one of four Adairsville Tigers to reach double figure scoring Friday night as Adairsville upset LFO to reach the Region 6-AAA title game Saturday night.

The Adairsville Tigers advanced to the Region 6-AAA championship game with a semifinal win Friday night over Lakeview-Fort Oglethorpe, 69-65.

The victory over the Warriors came one night after T.J. Printup’s desperation heave and four-point play lifted the Tigers to a one point quarterfinal win over Murray County.

Friday, Adairsville grabbed a 24-14 lead by the end of the opening quarter and held a 42-33 advantage at the intermission. LFO outscored Adairsville 14-12 in the third quarter narrowing the margin to 54-47 but the Tigers held on down the stretch of the final eight minutes for a four-point win.

T.J. Printup, Jr. led four Tigers in double figures Friday night with 16 points. Kavi Harris scored 15. Tre Winters tossed in 13 and Tre Mitchell contributed 12. Jordan Carson chipped in seven points. Hayden Poarch and Chris Roper added three apiece for Adairsville.

JaMichael Davis had a game-high 31 points for Lakeview-Fort Oglethorpe. Brent Bowman added 16 for the Warriors who lost for only the third time all year.

Adairsville (16-10) will play top-seeded LaFayette on the Ramblers’ home floor Saturday night at 8:30 p.m. for the region championship. The win also secured a home state playoff game next week for the Tigers as no worse than a No. 2-seed.

LFO (21-3) will play Ringgold in the third place game Saturday afternoon at 3:30 p.m.
