It has been a long season for the East High Tigers.

But win or lose, they play the game hard and aggressive, but lose games at the end because of a lack of depth, height and just plain talent.

Such was the last Friday night when Beechcroft Cougars provided the opposition in a City League North battle at East High School.

The Cougars with one of the top players in the area in Martise McLaurin, finally pulled away in the second half for a 69-59 win.

The Cougars upped their record to 9-7, 7-5, while East, still looking for their first win since December 18 and first home win of the year, drops to 2-16, 1-11.

Beechcroft used a hot-shooting second quarter, making five 3-point goals to go up at halftime, 40-25. They outscored East 25-9.
