The Mifflin Punchers had their hands full with the East High Tigers Thursday night.

The City North battle saw Mifflin go to 6-9 overall, 5-6.East drops to 2-15 overall, 1-10.

The East Tigers have two streaks going that they’d like to see go away in the wind. They have not won a game since defeating Linden 51-46 back on December 18 and have not won at home all season.

The game started out with Mifflin taking control early in the first quarter. Behind the play of Ashton Scott, the Punchers raced out to a 19-5 lead. But the Tigers playing good defense and solid rebounding settled down and went on a 12-0 run to end the opening quarter trailing just 19-17, while surviving a five turnover quarter.

At the end of three quarters, Mifflin led 49-46.

The game was going to be decided in the fourth quarter by Mifflin. Up until then, the Tigers had held high-scoring point guard Percy Dean in check with only 10 points. But head coach Gene Caslin, put the game and ball in the hands of the lightning-quick and sharp-shooting guard Dean and let him take over the game, which he did. He scored 15 points on two, field goals and ten free throws. Everytime he got the ball, East fouled him.

Dean ended up leading Mifflin with 25 points, Ashton Scott scored 14, Jonathan Roberts knocked in 11 and Alex Harris scored 10.

The broadcast team will be back at East High School Friday night (tonight) as the Beechcroft Cougars visit at 7:00 pm.
