A Friend of mine, that is a Mt. Tabor follower, was at the game and said this.

“It was a great game. Page led by 1 at the half, Tabor jumped out early in the third. Page chipped away with their bench guys (all starters were in foul trouble) and pulled away in the end. Page was much, much better than I thought. They won the game because they were the better team tonight, not because Tabor necessarily played poorly. Page’s guards were really small, but really good against Tabor’s big time guys. If Tabor had a post presence they could size up the wall for a banner, I don’t know if anyone scored but their 3 guards. It was a track meet, although you wouldn’t know it by the score. A great high school game between 2 teams that could make deep runs at the end of the year.”
